Katadyn DRIP CERADYN - filter: 3x ceramic
Thanks to gravity, the Ceradyn can effortlessly and without any muscle power even large amounts of water (recommended to 6 people). The construction of the Ceradyn is ideal for stationary use in kitchens, tents, operating centers, mountain huts, etc.
The long service life of up to 150,000 liters is ideally suited for long-term use and crises.
Difference Gravidyn to Ceradyn
The Gravidyn has additional activated carbon granules in the filter cartridges and therefore also filters chemicals from the water, but above all the taste of the water is significantly improved.
BUT, once put into operation, the ceramic / active carbon elements have to be replaced after 6 months. The Gravidyn is thus more suitable for the short, intensive use, which then delivers better water.
The Ceradyn works without activated carbon. Can be put into operation again after use, including correct storage / drying of the ceramic elements.
For both, the ceramic retains up to 150,000 liters, depending on the water quality, and must be replaced if the gauge shows an insufficient wall thickness of the filter ceramic. When the active carbon elements are consumed in the gravidyn, one can then also retrofit the ceradiadne elements, since both are identical.
Mode of action
Removes bacteria, protozoa, cysts, algae, spores, sediments. Viruses in connection with particles from 0.2 micron size. Functional principle: The mini-pores of the filter ceramic (pore size: 0.2 micron = 0.0002 mm) are smaller than the mentioned microorganisms. These can not pass through the filter element because of their size and are removed from the water. In contrast to disposable filters, the ceramic can be cleaned several times - cleaning is also possible without problems on the road.
