Disruptor® filter media is a new technology representing an alternative to the use of membranes. Disruptor® has the ability to efficiently remove a wide of harmful contaminants (submicron particulates, organic acids, virus, bacteria, cysts, cell debris and trace pharmaceuticals) from water, making it safe to consume.
Due to the open media structure, Disruptor® can be used in a very wide range of end uses covering both pressurized water purification systems as well as gravity flow applications. In addition to outstanding pathogen performance products available also with special functionalities such as chlorine removal, heat-sealing, and antimicrobial treatment for preventing bacteria build-up. The removal of selected trace metals also possible in given pH ranges.
Disruptor® can compete as a stand alone alternative to polymeric membranes or used in combination with other water purification technologies. Disruptor® media is also easy to convert and can be made into virtually any size filter cartridge.
Why choose Disruptor®
Performance - Disruptor® removes a wider range of pathogens and contaminants than UF/Hollow fibers, carbon blocks, particulate cartridges and ultraviolet technologies such as bacteria/legionella, viruses, cyst, endotoxin, polysaccharides, colloids, trace pharmaceuticals, particulates among other pathogens. With a 1E5 -1E6 CFU/mL challenge concentration we can above 2000 liters/m2 capacity still reach Log 6 level LRV values for E-Coli which is equal to > 500,000,000,000 removed CFU of E-Coli per m².
Energy Savings and Sustainability - Disruptor® offers very high flux rates at lower pressure drops compared to competing technologies with similar biological removal performance.
Product Safety and Taste - Disruptor® removes effectively the pathogens and other contaminants, but in parallel maintaining the minerals for taste in the water without issues of handling “brine” waste water using RO systems. Compared to UF/hollow fibers Disruptor® does not block easily and filter remains odorless even if not used for several days. All Disruptor® grades are complying under NSF/ANSI 42 applicable drinking water requirements.
Flexibility - Disruptor® can be used as a stand alone solution or in combination with other technologies depending on the level of water purification needs. It can be used in pleated configurations to fit any size filter housing, or in the format of die cut flat samples.
