Amazon's SupaSpun II R31 technology reduces the risk of boreholes delivering drinking water with high turbidity.

Amazon Filters has recently published an application study that describes how two major municipal water suppliers are using its SupaSpun II R31 filtration cartridges to lessen the risk of their boreholes delivering drinking water with high turbidity. 

Turbidity is caused by particulates in the water and water with high turbidity can be a health risk, so it is one of the critical measures of water quality and is used by both water supply companies and industry regulators to ensure the water clarity is acceptable to the consumers. Turbidity limits are typically set at <1 NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units) and often set at <0.5NTU by regulators.

Amazon Filters supplies static and mobile skid-mounted filtration systems to ensure low turbidity water supply. These water turbidity control systems are based on the company’s SupaSpun II R31 filtration technology.

Available in absolute ratings from 0.3 to 180µm, the construction of SupaSpun II R31 filters have a precision graded porosity that provides absolute ratings and high levels of dirt holding capacity and good flow rates. SupaSpun II R31 cartridge filters comply with a range of potable water regulations.
