Big Brand Water Filter, Inc. manufactures Ultra-Pleat standard-size filters to fit the four popular sized filter housings; 10 & 20 SlimLine and 10 & 20 Big Blue filter housings. Each Ultra-Pleat Cartridge is a highly electropositive filter that rapidly adsorbs particles, no matter how small. The Ultra-Pleat media has a high capacity for particles as large as tens of microns or as small as a few nanometers.
The active component in Big Brand Water Filter, Inc.s patented Ultra-Pleat filter media is a microfiber that is only two nanometers in diameter. This nano fiber contains a naturally occurring and highly electropositive charge. In nature, virtually all particles contain a negative charge. And just like a magnet, negative is attracted to positive. As such Ultra-Pleat will attract and retain particles, no matter how small. These nano fibers, which are dispersed in huge numbers throughout the entire structure of Ultra-Pleat filter media, are permanently affixed to the microglass fiber matrix within the media. This results in a non-woven filter media with 2 micron average pore size and with water flux typical of that pore size but with a 0.2 micron Absolute rating.
This technology was developed in conjunction with NASA and was designed for use in military applications for protection from biological warfare.
Big Brand Water Filter has made a special arrangement to purchase military grade nanofiber media. We then have the filters custom made to our specifications. This product is exclusive to Big Brand Water Filter, Inc. and isnt available from any other water treatment dealer.
