Micron Filtration is a type of physical filtration process where a contaminated fluid is passed through a special pore-sized cartridge to separate suspended particles from process liquid. ... The filters are offered in stainless / carbon steel construction, compatible to standard cartridges of different micron ratings.
The huge amount of minerals, metals, chemicals and bacteria within our water can be treated with a water filter. Micron size effectively becomes a measure of the efficiency of a filter in terms of purity. The smaller the micron measure, the more is taken out of the water, leaving you with pure water.
Filters with a 5-micron rating remove a large amount of debris from liquid. While there are other, smaller micron ratings, those filters below 5 microns are prone to intense clogging or quick debris build-up. The smaller the micron rating, the faster the filter fills up. To prevent clogging, it is sometimes suggested to use more than one filter when there are a lot of particles, dirt, and debris to be filtered. A 5-micron rating works well in many industries, including the food and beverage industry.
