What is a micron?
A micron is short for micrometer or one millionth of a meter. Now that’s a very tiny unit of measure! The micron rating refers to the distance between pieces of filter media. This determines the size of particles that the filter will allow to pass through. In other words the lower the micron level of a filter, the more contaminants it can catch and purify from your water..
What is a carbon filter?
Carbon filters use a process where the pollutants adhere to the carbon particles as the water or air passes through it.
As they are useful for purifying water and purifying the air of contaminants, they are also exceptionally useful in removing offending odors from pipes attached to home or on tank water.
As a result, are commonly used for water purification, air filtering and industrial gas processing. For example the removal of siloxanes and hydrogen sulfide from biogas.
Also used in a number of other applications. Including some methods of coffee decaffeination and in the recovery of precious metals, especially gold.
In water purification, activated carbon removes impurities and contaminants through the chemical process of adsorption.
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions.
