Features & Information

Specifically formulated to target toxic Nitrate, SPECTRUM SRNI resin operates similarly to softening resin, by exchanging harmful Nitrate ions with Chloride ions.


What is the SPECTRUM SRNI cartridge, and what is its primary function?

An SRNI cartridge is a water treatment device designed to reduce nitrate levels in water. Its primary function is to exchange harmful nitrate ions for chloride ions, effectively reducing nitrate concentrations in water.

How do nitrates enter surface and groundwater, and why is their reduction important?

Nitrates often enter surface and groundwater through runoff from agricultural activities, particularly from the use of fertilisers. Reducing nitrate levels is essential because excessive nitrate concentrations in drinking water can pose health risks, especially to infants, and can lead to water quality issues.

What are the World Health Organization (WHO) limits for nitrate levels in drinking water?

The WHO recommends a maximum nitrate concentration of 50 milligrams per liter (mg/L) in drinking water to protect human health.

What are the typical applications for SRNI cartridges?

SRNI cartridges are commonly used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings to treat water sources with elevated nitrate levels, ensuring compliance with nitrate concentration standards and improving water quality.
