trainrite Inc. has developed the "Aqua-Rite" Potable Water Filtration System to meet the requirements of the Surface Water Treatment Rule and the regulatory protocols of most states. "Aqua-Rite" is appropriate technology for surface water sources, as well as ground water under the influence. This system features a dual-stage design that initially removes debris and larger contaminants, before filtering out disease producing microorganisms. This approach extends the life of the bag that filters out the Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts. "Aqua-Rite" is constructed entirely of ANSI/NSF Standard 61 approved materials and components, using high-grade stainless steel for the filter housings, and virgin polypropylene microfibers for the filter bags. Each component has undergone rigorous toxilogical testing by Underwriter's Laboratories, in accordance with NSF protocol. The system consists of a prefilter and a final filter stage, utilizing filter housings specifically engineered for this critical application. These vessels employ a proven, proprietary "5 points of seal" design, effectively eliminating by-pass. These specially engineered products are used in applications where high efficiency bag filtration and Certified NSF Standard 61 compliance are required, most notably for potable water (to achieve compliance with the SurfaceWater Treatment Rule), and in the food and beverage industry. This product line is serviced and sold only through specially trained and selected distributors. Please consult the factory at Extension 1619 for the distributor in your area.
