Filter Doulton Super Sterasyl Ceramic Water Filter Candle for Gravity Urn Water Filters
12 month royal doulton super sterasyl
The 12 month or 2000 litre super sterasyl filter manufactured by Royal Doulton is far and the way the best gravity filter manufactured anywhere.
With its Absolute filtration rating (defined as >99.99%) of 0.9 microns, this filter is highly effective against particulate contamination, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, giardia, cryptosporidium as well as chlorine and organic removal capabilities. This filter has been tested and certified to The World Health Organization and the national laboratory standards of over 50 countries.
The Super Sterasyl Water Filtration Element
The Sterasyl ceramic is the ceramic shell used for the Super Straysl filter element. Accordingly, this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of the Sterasyl ceramic. Additionally, the bore of the ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water. The re-cleanable Super Sterasyl filter elements remove suspended solids, parasites, cysts and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%) and reduce organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, SOCs, VOCs and foul tastes and odors. The top of the Super Sterasyl element is closed with a unique ceramic dome. This prevents the possibility of breeching (leakage), which can occur with filtration elements that are closed with a plastic cap.

Bacterial mitosis and grow-through. Mitosis is the name for the usual method of bacterial cell division. This division is characterized by resolving the chromatin of the cell nucleus into a threadlike form that condenses into chromosomes, each of which separates longitudinally into two parts, one part of each chromosome being retained in each of the two new daughter cells. When conditions of growth (cell division) are right (proper environmental conditions, temperature, pressure, etc.) and sufficient nutrients, the threadlike forms can penetrate ordinary ceramic structure and create bacterial cells on the inside of ceramic elements. The Sterasyl grade filter elements incorporate pure silver into the porous ceramic shell, which inhibits mitosis or grow-through.
