The primary double Membrane Active Carbon/ EM Ceramics Filter is highly refined (0.01 micron) and is NSF-42 approved and removes heavy metals, asbestos, bacteria, pesticides and pharmaceutical residues without filtering important minerals such as calcium or magnesium. Active carbon also removes undesired odorous or flavouring substances and neutralizes chlorine which is often added by the waterworks as a disinfectant.
The secondary filter used in the Tyent HI-Elite Series Water Ionizers is the UF Membrane filter. The 10 step Ultra-Filtration membrane features tiny micro-pores of 0.01um which the water is forced through, the pores of the UF membranes are so tiny that bacteria and viruses are unable to pass through. This filter also removes any remnant chlorine and organic/inorganic compounds using the activation - absorption method generating perfectly clean water for consumption.
