Stages of Filtration:
• Automatic Mega Char
The mega char is a Fibre glass vessel that can be filled with different media designed to filter water obtained from municipal, borehole, well point or rain water source. Depending on your requirements and water quality one or more of the filtration media can be used to fill the fibre glass vessel. Filtration media, coconut shell activated carbon and iron removal media is used most often.
The tubular design that is used, makes it more effective than similar filters because of the longer “detention time” that the water has with the media. The water flows from the top down through a tightly packed bed of media, which allows the water to be filtered completely. Pushing up through the riser tube, the water is directed to either filter, backwash or rinse. The backwash and rinse cycles ensures that the filter stays clean on the inside and prevents the water from forming tunnels through the media. It also extends the lifetime of the media. Automatic and manual valves are available for backwash and rinse functions.
• Polishing Filter
This is a 1 micron sediment filter for finer filtration. It is also used as a polishing filter before the UV light. This is to ensure that the UV light receives clear water which in turn will ensure effective penetration of the UV light through the water.
• Sterilization filter
This is a stainless steel UV light used to sterilize the water. UV rays can destroy 99.99% of harmful micro-organisms without adding chemical or changing your water’s taste or odour. Ultraviolet light (UV) is a natural part of sunlight and is widely accepted as a reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly solution for water disinfection. The UV lamp utilizes the application of a particularly efficient UV radiator with a 254nm wave length which will kill organisms and wipe out their ability to survive and reproduce, The water is exposed to UV radiation in a specially designed chamber that provides intimate contact of the water with the UV light source. Bacteria and other living organisms absorb the energy, which destroys or inactivates their DNA, thus preventing the bacteria from reproducing. Similarly, chemicals and organic compounds also absorb the energy and they are broken down into smaller and more harmless molecules.

Disclaimer: Mega chars are intended for household use and limits apply to water quality and quantity. Have your water tested before installing a mega char to ensure that it is the right solution. It is important to note that the volume of water put through the unit as well as the quality of the water will greatly influence the lifetime of the media.
