Supercarb ™

The Sterasyl™ ceramic is fitted with an activated carbon block insert to produce the Supercarb™ filter element. Among other things, activated carbon is very effective at removing chlorine and organics from water. Supercarb™ is designed to be used in pressure filters (on a mains water supply), not in gravity filters.

  • Fits Industry standard 10”filter housings
  • Dual stage filtration within a single cartridge
  • Filtration efficiency of> 99.99% at 0.9 micron
  • Filtration efficiency of > 98% at 0.2 micron
  • Highly efficient bacteriological filtration

Benefits: Supercarb™ has all the benefits of Sterasyl™ (removal of particles, pathogenic bacteria, cysts etc.) with additional chlorine and organics removal capabilities.

The Doulton Supercarb is a two stage cartridge combining the highly efficient filtration properties of ceramic with the enhanced water treatment properties of activated carbon.

First Stage

The first stage consists of Doulton Sterasyl® ceramic which is manufactured to provide genuine submicron filtration. The cartridge reduces fine particulate matter, bacteria, cysts and turbidity. The incorporation of silver locked within the ceramic structure gives enhanced bacteriostatic and self-sterilising properties.

Second Stage

An inner core of activated carbon block removes chlorine and organic compounds.

Doulton

In 19th Century England, the River Thames was London s main water supply and sewer. Henry Doulton discovered that filtering water through a porous ceramic could stop people becoming sick from cholera and other water-borne diseases. This was a revolution in water treatment.

Fast forward 175 years and the ceramic filtration technology has advanced a long way, but the principles of our ceramic filters remain the same – providing safe, healthy, great-tasting drinking water wherever and whenever you need it. From a mud hut in Uganda to an office block in Utah, Doulton filters are working round-the-clock to provide millions of people with water they can enjoy and trust.

Doulton Stainless Steel – Counter top filter housing

Doulton® filters offer you bottled water quality on tap 24 hours a day. Our unique ceramic filtration technology produces drinking water of unrivalled quality. All of our filter grades have been microbiologically tested. Most grades also remove chlorine and improve the taste and odour of the water, while others use lead absorbtive media to take out toxic lead specifically and other heavy metals.

Flowrite

Our Flowrite range of filters offer affordable filtration at a level of quality again to ensure your continued peace of mind.

We continually add to our range of filtration related products and also keep a standard stock of your common components like filter cartridges, filter housings and activated carbon filter cartridges.

HIP Filter Housing – for Doulton ceramic filter cartridges

In-line filters are highly robust as they are under water pressure all of the time. They were originally designed to be fitted to the mains cold water pipe underneath the kitchen counter.

In addition to being used in the home, FICL’s in-line filters have proved very popular within the water cooler industry. They are easy to incorporate into cooler plumbing.

Made from food grade acetyl and polyester, the HIP is a cost-effective and easy to use filter unit. It can be used either to filter all cold water running into the kitchen sink, or to provide filtered drinking water via a separate faucet. The HIP is fitted with one filter candle. 

  • As standard the HIP takes filter candles which are 10 inches long, 2 inches in diameter, with a short mount.
  • A DIY kit is available with the HIP filter to enable easy fitting via a line piercing valve to 15mm copper pipes without the services of a plumber. The HIP DIY kit also provides all the fittings needed to install a separate drinking water faucet. For any other sizes of pipe or non-copper pipes, a plumber or specialised installer should be consulted
  • Both inlet and outlet are 3/8 inch push fit connections suitable for 3/8 flexible plastic pipe
  • When fitted with Sterasyl™ filter candles, the HIP will produce a flow rate of approximately 300 litres per hour at 3 bar pressure
  • The HIP can be fitted with Sterasyl™, Supercarb™, Ultracarb™ filter candles.
  • The installation instructions provided with the product should always be followed carefully.

Sterasyl™

At the heart of all FICL’s filters is the Sterasyl™ ceramic. The ceramic is impregnated with silver to inhibit the growth of bacteria. Sterasyl™ ceramics have a tightly controlled complex pore structure, which has unparalleled filtration properties. Sterasyl™ is effective in both gravity and pressure filters.

Benefits: With its Absolute filtration rating (defined as >99.99%) of 0.9 microns, Sterasyl™ is highly effective against particulate contamination, pathogenic bacteria, cysts etc.

Doulton Sterasyl is a highly efficient ceramic micro filter which provides genuine submicron filtration of drinking water. Sterasyl is manufactured with the highly consistent and controlled pore structure necessary to remove a wide range of waterborne contaminants over the life of the cartridge.

  • Fits Industry standard 10” filter housings.
  • Filtration efficiency of 100% at 0.9 micron

Healthy water healthy life

Doulton and British Berkfield filters offer you bottled water quality on tap 24 hours a day. Our unique ceramic filtration technology produces drinking water of unrivalled quality. All of our filter grades have been microbiologically tested.

Most grades also remove chlorine and improve the taste and odour of the water, while others use lead obsorbtive media to take out toxic lead specifically and other heavy metals.

Why a ceramic filter?

The small and complex pore structure of Doulton and British Berkefeld ceramics makes them an ideal filter medium for drinking water:

High Efficiency Filter:

Doulton® and British Berkefeld® filters are capable of removing more than 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria, disease causing cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia, and particles.

Long Life/Value for Money:

As confirmed by the user instructions supplied with the product, the outer shell of Doulton® and British Berkefeld ® ceramic drinking water filters may be cleaned in order to prolong the life of the product.

In this way, the filter can be re-used rather than replaced, giving it a much longer life-span than many other products on the market, saving you money. On average, a Doulton ® or British Berkefeld® filter candle will remain effective for at least 6 months (depending on usage and water quality) before it will need to be replaced.

Anti-Bacterial Action:

FICL’s ceramics contain a proprietary system to inhibit microbiological growth, meaning that there is no need to sterilise Doulton or British Berkefeld ceramic filters.

Retains Essential Minerals:

Doulton and British Berkefeld ceramic filters keep those minerals in the water, which are beneficial to health.

No Power Required:

Doulton ® and British Berkefeld® drinking water filters do not require electricity to function, which means that they are cost-effective to run, are not vulnerable to interruption of power supplies, and can be used where there are no power supplies.

The Doulton Rio High flow is suited to the Jumbo or “Big Blue” filter housing
