The term mechanical filtration with a cartridge means the removal of particles (impurities) from water with a variable of one μm. Cartridge-based filters are any water treatment process, so they can be stand-alone or part of a larger chemical system. In layman’s terms, a mechanical filter with an insert removes only the “largest” and “basic” water-insoluble impurities such as grains before, chlorine particles, sludge, etc., which is accordingly the most favorable variant of all other filters.
The cartridge filtration of each system is important because it prevents the deposition of impurities, thus maintaining the designed pressure drop, the degree of efficiency and the service life of the system. It is important to note that cartridge filtration does not remove water-soluble particles, and will not significantly change the chemical structure of the water. To reduce the concentration of elements unfavorable for the industrial production system such as iron (Fe), manganese (Mg) and other compounds, more complex systems such as sand filters, demineralizers, reverse osmosis, etc. are used.
