Pressure Coolers are here to help you with all of your hydration needs. We offer a wide range of drinking water systems and aim to provide our customers with the best possible service.
Many of us drink water from a mains supply which is safe but can often include unwanted particles such as chlorine. To improve your drinking water experience, we recommend a water filter. We have included five different water filters and their functions so you can fully understand how they work.
5 Water Filter Types
- Mechanical Filter
The main function of a mechanical filter is to physically eliminate dirt and any other particles found in the water. This is done by using a barrier. Mechanical filters are usually seen in a basic mesh filter or a large ceramic filter.
- Absorption Filters
These filters are carbon based. Carbon is very absorbent as it has an internal surface filled with nooks and crannies. This makes it easier to catch all impurities found in water. Many of the common water filters include Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) which minimises undesirable tastes and odours.
- Sequestration Filters
This filter is used to chemically separate a substance. Food grade polyphosphate is popular in water filters. The aim of this process is to keep minerals in the water.
- Ion Exchange Filters
This filter is used for the process of softening hard water which is done by replacing magnesium and calcium ions with sodium ions.
- Reverse Osmosis Filters
This filter removes dissolved inorganic solids such as magnesium ensuring that the water passes filtering out unwanted impurities.
