CRYPTOPleat Filter Cartridge for Cryptosporidium Removal

CRYPTOPleat filter cartridges are utilised for the control of Cryptosporidium oocysts in water used in the food, beverage and ultrapure water industries. CRYPTOPleat cartridges have been independently tested to ensure >log4 removal of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts. The CRYPTOPleat cartridge has been developed after extensive research and has resulted in filter media with continuously graded fibre density. This yields progressively finer oocyst retention through the depth of the media.
