Sub-micron filters, by United Filters International

United Filters International’s ULTRA-D Submicron Depth Filtration Series, manufactured using a proprietary, patented, electroadsorptive media technology, are capable of removing submicron pathogens and inorganic contaminants through electro-adhesion and ion exchange. This makes it possible for a non-woven media to produce filtration efficiency at very low pressure drop, with high flowrates and high loading capacity working equally well in fresh, brackish or salt waters. The media consists of coated micro-glass fibers and base media is laminated between layers of spun-bond to provide both strength and pleat support. The media is NSF 61-approved and USP Class VI testing and endotoxin testing. The filter is available in three other versions: with natural silver impregnated in the media to protect the filter surface from bacterial and fungal growth, killing pathogens on the filter surface; with powdered activated carbon with an average particle size of only eight microns and with powdered activated carbon and natural silver. www.unitedfilters.com

Air purifiers, by Waterwise, Inc.

Waterwise’s Airwise® air-purifier, advanced purification technology goes beyond mechanical filtration methods to oxidize odors, settle dust, reduce allergens and destroy viruses, bacteria and mold. Airwise employs a process called photocatalysis, which works to oxidize organic odors, microorganisms, algae, fungi and parasites, as well as toxic VOCs like formaldehyde. These purifiers are silent and maintenance-free. Report and catalog available. waterwise.com/wcp, (800) 874-9028 x674

Water softener and filter, by Canature North America

The Canature 785 Dual Pass Softener uses a two-tank system to prevent hardness leakage on very hard water supplies (> 75 gpg). The first tank significantly reduces water hardness while the second tank acts as a polisher to prevent slippage. The unit features salt-efficient, up-flow regeneration for ultimate salt savings. The BAF 565 Series chemical-free iron filter removes stubborn iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide, all while using up to 50-percent less water than traditional iron filters. Natural oxidation removes iron without the need for chemicals, air pumps or Venturis. Also available is the 95 Series for high flowrates for large residential and commercial applications. Three models are available: BAF, neutral pH or higher; BIF, > 7.0 pH and BIF MN, low pH (6.0 to 6.9). www.canaturena.com, (877) 771-6789
