By using a multiple stage process, Filtrine’s point of entry purification system filters city water to serve clean tasty water to multiple outlets. Lead, pathogens, chlorine, organic odors and particles down to 0.5 microns are removed and the purified water is dispensed to coffee makers, sinks, drinking fountains, bottle filling stations, toilets and more. Ideal uses are for schools and other institutions where there is a concern that the water coming into the building is compromised in some way.
Point of Entry Water System Overview
Filtrine Point of Entry Water Filtration System
Point of entry water filtration starts with Filtrine’s spun-poly particulate filters (shown in the stainless steel housing on the right in the diagram).Then the 0.5 micron biodegradable carbon block purifier removes lead and water-borne pathogens (in the housing on the left). The optional UV sterilizer eliminates disease-causing micro-organisms without the use of chemicals.
Filtrine’s elements employ no cartridge compression. Filtrine’s exclusive “Dual Seal” design ensures first-day effectiveness for the life of the element. Conventional cartridge-type filters depend upon compression of the cartridge top and bottom to make a seal. When wet, the competition’s cartridge loses rigidity, making it impossible to stop water from bypassing the element.
Filtrine’s in-line Model IL-PFTM-0.5L element housings are constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel and are rated at 150 psi working pressure. They are built to outlast the piping in the building.
For a case study of point of entry systems implemented at the Baltimore City Public Schools, see the Filtrine Drinking Water Project Profile: Baltimore Schools Are No Longer Using Bottled Water Saving Money & Storage. Filtrine customized each point of entry installation based on the capacity needed at each school.
A service contract is often recommended which covers labor and materials to monitor and maintain the operation of the filtration module. It includes the changing of filter elements on a scheduled basis no more than three times per year.
