Inhibiting Mitosis

The Super Sterasyl™ ceramic filter is designed to trap bacteria mainly on the outer surface of the ceramic element preventing them from passing through into the drinking water.

Given favorable temperature and pressure conditions, the accumulated bacteria could proliferate and grow unless prevented by some means. To inhibit this our elements are manufactured with a small amount of silver in the ceramic shell. When the bacteria comes into contact with the silver impregnated ceramic, their growth is inhibited.
