FAQs - Crypto

What is Cryptosporidium?

Cryptosporidium is a parasite which causes the disease Cryptosporidiosis, which affects both animals and humans. Cryptosporidiosis is very unpleasant, but usually resolves within a few weeks. However, it can be serious for children, the elderly or immunocompromised individuals.

How does Cryptosporidium removal work?

The Cryptosporidium oocyst is between 3-6 micron in size, so regulations for removal state that absolute filtration must be used at 1 micron or less.

What is a pleated filter?

A pleated filter is a type of liquid filtration cartridge designed with pleats or folds on the filter media to increase the surface area for better filtration efficiency compared to spuns and wounds.

What types of contaminants do pleated filters remove?

Pleated filters are used to remove suspended particulate. They are usually used to control finer particulate as a final stage of filtration where a specific contaminant is targeted for removal.
