Berkey Ceramic Filter Super Sterasyl 9" Imperial
Berkey Ceramic Filter Super Sterasyl™ is designed with a high efficiency filter capable of handling 99.99% plus filtration of bacteria, cysts and particles.
The Super Sterasyl™ Ceramic Shell
The Super Sterasyl™ grade ceramic is designed to remove suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%). The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic, which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1,000º C. They are designed to operate with water flow going from the outside to the inside of the element. The ceramic shell exhibits a strictly controlled pore structure, so as to provide efficient sub-micron filtration, a proven defense against hard-shelled parasites such as Cryptosporidium as well as pathogenic bacteria. The ceramic also removes other less harmful, but equally unpleasant particulate debris such as rust and dirt.
Composition of the Super Sterasyl™ ceramic contains silver. This silver is a material designed to significantly inhibit mitosis or grow through. The result is that bacterial growth is inhibited from occurring within the Super Sterasyl™ Element (which is possible with the other ceramic filter elements). Because of the silver, Super Sterasyl™ filter elements do not require sterilization after cleaning.
The Super Sterasyl™ Element, when used in in-line housings, is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as meeting their Standard No 42 for materials.Features:
