Functions of the BIOFILTRO

How the Filtration Works?

Gravity allows contaminated water to pass through the clay via microscopic canals of activated natural carbon. As a result of this ultrafine filtration, pathogens and solid materials are trapped and destroyed upon contact with the colloidal silver, recognized for many years as one of the most effective natural biocides. Bacteria making contact with the silver particles are neutralized, leaving the water safe for consumption.

Filters between one to three litters per hour.

The Filtration Unit

It’s composed of three natural materials: clay, sawdust, and colloidal silver. During the firing process the sawdust turns into an activated natural carbon. Next, the external and internal surfaces are impregnated with colloidal silver in liquid form.

Filtration rate BIOFILTRO

BIOFILTRO 30 liters:

The filtration unit has a capacity of 9 liters with a filtration rate of between 1.4 liters and 2.4 liters/hour with an average of 1.8 liters/hour. The daily water production is approximately 22 liters with 3 fillings in the morning, at noon and in the evening.

BIOFILTRO 20 liters:

The filtration unit has a capacity of 9 liters with a filtration rate of between 1.4 and 2.4 liters/hour with an average of 1.8 liters/hour. The water produced daily is approximately 15 liters with 3 fillings in the morning, noon and night.

BIOFILTRO 12 liters:

The filtration unit has a capacity of 4.50 liters with a filtration rate between 0.70 and 1.20 liters/hour with an average of 1 liter/hour. The water produced daily is approximately 10 liters with 3 fillings in the morning, noon and evening.


BIOFILTRO 7 liters:

The filtration unit has a capacity of 2 liters with a filtration rate between 0.30 and 0.53 liters/hour with an average of 0.42 liters/hour. Water produced daily is approximately 6 liters with 3 fills in the morning, noon and night.

Notes:

  • When using the BIOFITRO for the first time the filtration rate is slower.
  • For a good use it is important that the BIOFILTRO is as full as possible.
  • The slower the filtration speed, better is the water quality.

Terra Design – Ceramic Jar

Composed exclusively of locally mined clay. Crafted and polished by artisans, the jar cools the water in a natural manner.

Its operation is straightforward: water is filtered through the porous clay and upon contact with the filter’s exterior it evaporates, producing a cooling effect.

The key to cooling the water is the evaporation-taking place on the exterior surface.

It is impregnated with colloidal silver inside and outside to control the multiplication of patogenic agents in the storage water.
