British Berkefeld / Doulton Super Sterasyl Ceramic Candle 7 inchl x 2 inch dia Replacement
At the heart of all FICL's filters is the Sterasyl ceramic. The ceramic is impregnated with silver to make it self-sterilising. Silver inhibits the growth of bacteria. Sterasyl ceramics have a tightly controlled complex pore structure, which has unparalleled filtration properties. Sterasyl is effective in both gravity and pressure filters.
Benefits: With its Absolute filtration rating (defined as >99.99%) of 0.9 microns, Sterasyl� is highly effective against particulate contamination, pathogenic bacteria, cysts etc.
The Sterasyl ceramic is filled with granular activated carbon to produce the Super Sterasyl� filter element. Among other things, activated carbon is very effective at removing chlorine and organics from water.
Super Sterasyl uses granular activated carbon instead of an activated carbon block in order to give superior flow rates in a gravity filter. Granular carbon is not as effective as a carbon block under pressure conditions. Therefore, in a pressure filter, Supercarb� should be used for chlorine and organics removal.
Benefits: Super Sterasyl has all the benefits of Sterasyl� (removal of particles, pathogenic bacteria, cysts etc.), with additional chlorine and organics removal capabilities
Sterasyl™ Should be replaced once cleaning fails to restore the water flow. However, we usually recommend that Sterasyl™ candles are replaced after 10,000 litres of water have passed through the candle, to guarantee optimum performance.
Super Sterasyl™, Carbosyl™, Supercarb™, and Ultracarb™ In combination filter elements (ceramic shells containing other types of filter media) cleaning the ceramic will not extend the life of the internal material. For example, the ‘life’ of the carbon block in Supercarb™ or Ultracarb™ filter elements is determined by the concentration of chlorine and/or volatile organic compounds in the water supply. The particulate and turbidity concentration in the water supply govern the life of the ceramic. This means that the life of the ceramic might or might not exceed the capacity of the carbon insert, depending on the water quality. Whichever point is reached first – the six months usage or the ceramic becoming blocked to the extent where cleaning does not restore the flow – governs when the filter element requires replacing.
In most cases, the filter element should be replaced after 6 - 12 months of daily use. The following flow guidelines can be used to guarantee optimum performance:
Super Sterasyl™ 2,000 litres or 535 US gallons Carbosyl™ 1,496 litres or 400 US gallons Supercarb™ 3,740 litres or 1000 US gallons Ultracarb™ 2,244 litres or 600 US gallons
After this amount of water has passed through the filter element, the filter will need to be replaced to guarantee optimum performance
