How Nanofiber Filters Remove Contaminants

NanoFiber Filters


  • They are not a mechanical filter media that relies on pore size to remove contaminants
  • Removal of sub micron contaminants is achieved by electroadhesion and ion exchange
  • Filter is based on the mineral pseudoboehimite, AIO(OH)
  • Each gram of Alumina fiber has a surface area greater that 500 sq. meters
  • The active fibers are 2 nm in diameter and approximately 250 nm in length
  • The crystal structure of the mineral creates a natural electrokinetic potential of Al+++ on the surface of the fiber
  • It is not an electrostatic charge that can be dissipated by alcohol immersion
  • Charge potential maintains integrity between pH of 5.0 - 9.5 in polar liquids
  • The available hydroxyl group in each fiber will also exchange protons with many  electropositive colloids to retain them through a form of ion exchange
  • The Crystal structure allows for an extremely high surface area and a large number of active sites for sub-micron contamination removal
  • The pore size of the media is engineered such that the charge field covers the entire void of every pore
  • There are approximately 400 layers of these pores in the thickness of the media that contamination pass through during filtration, creating a tortuous path
  • The charge field removes the negatively charged sub-micron particles while the larger particles are captured with the fiber structure of the media
  • The Nano-fiber filter captures "small" particles not captured by conventional, mechanical filters
  • The  Nano-fiber filter captures organic/microbial macromolecules
  • Removes bacteria and viruses
  • Mean pore size of 1.25 microns 
  • Cartridge pressure drop <0.1 bar
  • Unique benefits: High flow rates, low pressure drop at Sub-micron retention
  • Each layer has Nanoalumina, powdered activated carbon, Antimicrobial silver and approximately 400 layers of charge fibers

Reduction levels:

  • 99.9999% virus reduction      
  • 99.9998% bacterial reduction
  • 99.99% cysts, guardia reduction
  • Reduces, fluoride, chlorine, lead, heavy metals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, DNA, RNA, arsenic, chromium, endotoxins, mercury, and much more
  • Silver/Carbon infused, they are anti-microbial
  • 5 micron pre-filter outer wrap for longer field life

Advantages over RO Membrane which work on the basis of mechanical filtration and the need for high pressure and small pore size to remove Sub-micron particles.

The extremely small pore size of a membrane cause low flow rates. High water waste is also an issue with RO systems, as much as 5 gallons is needed to produce one gallon of water

Nano-fiber media has a much larger physical pore sizes which allows for higher flow rates, lower pressure drop, and can still remove Sub-micron particles due to the inherent charge field which extends across the entire void volume of the pores. There's no water loss, 100% of the water passes through filtration.


The Revolution of NanoFiber Filters

When it comes to water purification, Nanofiber filters have emerged as pioneers, redefining the standards of water quality and safety. The use of Nanofiber filters represents a leap in the quest for cleaner, healthier water. Let's delve into the science behind Nanofiber filters and understand why they are becoming the go-to solution for superior water purification.

Understanding Nanofiber Filtration

NanoFiber filtration, at its core, harnesses the incredible efficiency of nanotechnology to filter out contaminants at the microscopic level. Traditional filtration systems often struggle to trap particles smaller than a certain size, leaving a potential risk to human health. Nanofiber water filters, however, boast fibers with diameters in the nanometer range, allowing them to capture even the tiniest of impurities. This ensures that your water is not just clean but virtually free from particles that could compromise its safety.

The Unrivaled Performance of Nanofiber Filters

Nanofiber filters outshine their counterparts in terms of performance. The nanofiber structure provides a larger surface area for filtration, allowing for higher efficiency and faster flow rates. This means that not only do nanofiber filters remove contaminants effectively, but they also do so without compromising the water pressure. The result is a filtration system that doesn't just meet industry standards but sets a new benchmark for excellence.

Advantages of Nanofiber Filtration Systems

The benefits of opting for nanofiber water filtering solutions extend beyond mere efficiency. These systems excel in durability and longevity, ensuring a more sustainable and cost-effective approach to water purification. Additionally, nanofiber filters often incorporate multiple layers of filtration, addressing a broader spectrum of contaminants. From bacteria and viruses to organic compounds, nanofiber filters provide comprehensive protection, making them a wise choice for households, businesses, and industries alike.

In conclusion, nanofiber water filters represent a watershed moment in the world of water purification. The transformative capabilities of nanofiber filters not only safeguard health but also contribute to a sustainable and eco-friendly future.
