Aragon Filter Options:
The Aragon filter cartridge is the latest breakthrough in filter technology to be released to the marketplace.
Except for fluoride, Aragon can remove all other heavy metals as well as most viruses, protozoa and bacteria in both hot & cold water. Its unique triple filtration method provides a porous yet mechanically strong structure.
Aragon Filters are multi-functional across town & tank or bore water situations and also reduces the hardness of water often found across many areas of Australia.
These new Aragon filters represents the most up-to-date technology for water treatment and viruses, bacteria and cists removal. That makes it possible to get completely safe and health-promoting water.
The tested Aragon cartridges have shown 100% water decontamination efficiency from viral pollution. The ARAGON BIO Filter will also remove 99.9% of human pathogens, i.e. rotaviruses and noroviruses, from water.
Mechanical impurities are filtered out through the surface layers with extremely high accuracy. SGS-polymers have shown the best results in the complex removal of harmful impurities. Elements and compounds including heavy metals and radioactive materials are removed through ion-exchange and sorption mechanisms. The Aragon solid block material is a bacteriostatic polymer made from additives of silver and granules of ion-exchange resins. Hardness salts, dissolved and colloidal iron, heavy metals, and their compounds are removed through the resin and polymer ion-exchange properties. The Aragon filters capacity also provides removal of active chlorine, chlorine-containing compounds, and organic compounds
Please note: Available in 9inch and 10inch.
Aragon removes from water:
Organic and chlorinated organic compounds
Heavy metals, and even viruses including hepatitis A virus, and also other harmful substances.
This cartridge (Patent No. 2287356 dd. 30.06.2015) combines several water treatment methods: mechanical; ion exchange, adsorption; electric adsorption.
Polymers with a space globular structure (SGS-polymers) were first synthesized in the USSR as the type of ion-exchange resins in the middle of 20th century.
Today only Geyser has a serial production technology of this material. SGS-polymers are radically new material combining three types of filtration: mechanical, absorption, and ion-change filtration. No known absorption materials can remove such a wide range of chemical compounds like SGS-polymers do.
SGS-polymers are macro molecular compounds which can be prepared from various monomers, e.g. resorcin, pyrocatechol, hydroquinone, melamine, carbamide, etc.
Microglobules, i.e. long polymer chains convoluted in coil, are formed in the process of synthesis of the SGS-polymers. Being aggregated these microglobules provide porous and still mechanically strong structure.
Micro globules have large inner surface (up to 500 m²/g). The surface itself is coated with active groups on which the ion-exchange processes are performed. The removable ions directly interact with a chemically-active polymer surface missing typical for ion-exchange resins stage of granule inward diffusion.
As a result the rate of the volumetric filtration of the SGS-polymers is 10-20 times higher compared to common granulated ion-exchange resins. This is a decisive advantage of the SGS-polymers.
The removal of mechanical impurities is mainly performed in surface layers of polymer. The pore size can vary in any range from 0.01 to 3.5 mkm. The required porosity of the material can be obtained by changing the synthesis conditions with an accuracy of no more than 10%.
Currently nearly 30 modifications of the SGS-polymers have been studied and the operation procedures for their production were developed. The materials with both cation– and anion– exchange properties were also synthesized.
ARAGON — resorcin-based polymer shows the best results in complex removal of harmful impurities from water. It has successfully passed strict compliance tests to Russian and International standards to be used in drinking water purification systems. Dissolved chemical elements (from aluminum to heavy and radioactive metals) and their compounds are removed from water by means of ion-exchange and sorption mechanisms.
ARAGON 2 is a composite material in the form of solid block made from Aragon polymer with a bacteriostatic additive of silver and granules of ion-exchange resin.
Hardness salts, dissolved and colloidal iron, heavy metals and their compounds are removed due to ion-exchange properties of resin and polymer. Ion-exchange resin increases hardness salts removal resource of ARAGON 2 by 12–15 times compared to ARAGON material.
The ARAGON sorption capacity is comparable with the best brands of activated carbon which provides removal of active chlorine, chlorine-containing compounds, and organic compounds.
The mechanical filtration of all particles with the size larger than the size of the external pores of the material is performed on the surface. The filtration channel has a complex tortuous form with a gradient porosity preventing discharge of filtered impurities into the purified water that often happens during pressure jumps. The number of free channels in the material gradually lowers decreasing the pressure of the purified water*. Aragon-based filtering element can be used repeatedly.
The labyrinth internal structure of ARAGON acts as a barrier for microorganisms. The majority of bacteria and viruses have oblong shape (from 0.5 to 20.0 mkm), that is why they are trapped in the tortuous channels of the material. To suppress the growth of microorganisms absorbed in the polymer, silver is inserted into the material in the form entirely preventing its migration into the purified water.
Quasi-softening is the unique feature of the ARAGON material. The structure of hardness salts is changed in water passing through the filtering material. As a result, no scale is formed in purified water. The water acquires the properties having favorable effect on living organism. More detailed information on effect of quasi-softening will be discussed hereafter.
The material has high mechanical strength with the possibility of mechanical treatment (cylinders, discs, etc.). Compact and efficient filters based on ARAGON material are unified in accordance with main international standards. The ARAGON sorbent was successfully used for water treatment in the regions exposed to contamination after the Chernobyl accident.
* Water pressure drop indicates the necessity of regeneration or replacement of the cartridge.
Traditional methods applied for water softening and scale prevention are ion exchange and reserve osmosis. Both methods remove just excess hardness salts from water. These are reliable but rather expensive methods.
An alternative way to prevent scale formation is to leave hardness salts in water, but to change their structure so that they will not form hard deposits when heated. Scale usually consists of calcium carbonate in the calcite form. However, there is another crystalline modification of calcium carbonate — aragonite. Aggregation and surface adherency capability of aragonite crystals are substantially lower than those of calcite. Aragonite precipitates in the fragile and loose form.
Up to now, magnetic water treatment was the only method using this property of aragonite for scale removal. Treatment of hard water with a Geyser Aragon filter in various geographical regions always revealed the same effect. Even when ion-exchange capacity of filter is exhausted, the water passed through Geyser filter does not form scale and, moreover, washes away the old one.
Today only Geyser has a serial production technology of this material. SGS-polymers are radically new material combining three types of filtration: mechanical, sorption, and ion-change filtration. None of known sorption materials can remove such a wide range of chemical compounds as SGS-polymers do.
