This item has been discontinued.

Poly-Bio-Marine Kold Ster-il Water Filter uses ten inch canisters (clear), 3/4" Npt. Threaded fittings, flows 3.8 Gpm (14.3Lpm) for approximately 5,000 gallons (18925 L.). The smaller system can provide lower lead, mercury, cadmium levels due to the addition, into the carbon cartridge, of a highly selective charged ceramic.

NOTICE: KOLD-STER-IL® SYSTEM (3) FOR 7–14 GPM FLOW RATES

Canister #1
(Looking right to left) Fin-L-Filter® Model PMA-50 filled with 30 PMA-50 Discs (3.75" Diameter) processed in sterile 1.0µ/Siemens/cm (conductivity) water. This provides 20-35% more efficiency in sorbing heavy metals. This filter media passes NSF Standards 53, 53b, 63 for heavy metals filtration, V.O.C. reduction & extractables in potable water. Replace this filter medium approx. 150,000 gallons. Reorder Item No. PMA-1 30/Pk.

Canister #2
(Looking right to left) Fin-L-Filter® Model PSM-50 filled with a single 0.20µm filter bag (18.5" L x 4.0" W.) capable of providing a 99.9% (Three log) reduction in particulates. This filter bag will remove free floating bacteria + Giardia cysts & Cryptosporidium. Note: If this filter is to be used on microbiologically unsafe water it must be in conjunction with Chlorine or Chlorine dioxide in a 2.00–3.00 mg/L concentration for viral control and to prevent bacteria growing through filter medium. Replace this filter bag medium after approx. 150,000 gallons volume. Reorder Item No. PSM-1 0.20µm (absolute) Filter Bag.

Canister #3
(Looking right to left) Kold Ster-il Canister filled with a 4.62"W. x 20"L. filter cartridge containing polypropylene inner/outer wraps, bonded power activated carbon NSF Rated, polypropylene endcaps and Buna-N gaskets. This filter cartridge is rated for 150,000 gallons @7.0 gpm of greater than 2.0mg/L free available chlorine. In addition this filter will adsorb VOC`s & Pesticides. This cartridge is NSF Certified to trap Giardia & Cryptosporidium cysts via a 99.9% (absolute) 1.00 micron rating.
Reorder Item No. CBC-0.50Lg.

Important Operating Instructions:
Operate 60psig. Working pressure with 90psig. Absolute maximum pressure rating. Install an operating pressure reducing valve with a pressure gauge before Kold Ster-il® Filtration System. For VOC & Pesticide adsorption via carbon—do not operate above 85° F. Use silicon grease on all “o” Rings, Endcaps, Top of 0.20µm filter Bag. Use Chlorine or Chlorine dioxide (2.0–3.0mg/L) on microbiologically unsafe or unknown water sources for bacteria & viruses before Kold Ster-il® System filtration. Replace filter media after 150,000 gallons (approx.) or as indicated via water analysis under EPA Standards & Methods of Analysis.

REVIEW
I have have previously owned and operated a RO unit for over 7 years. ROs have wastewater and a typical unit produces 24 gallon / hr. The Kold Ster-il produces no wastewater and fills a 5-gallon bucket in a couple minutes. I�m very pleased with the Kold Ster-il unit.
