WHAT IS A FILTER CANDLE ?
The ceramic of a filter candle is cast in such a way that it has one domed closed end. The other end of the ceramic is open. This open end is closed off with a food grade plastic mount, which enables the candle to fit into a filter housing. Water passes from the outside of the candle to the inside, leaving particles of dirt, bacteria, etc. on the outside of the ceramic. The filtered water then passes out of the candle through the mount.
There are 2 standard types of mount (long and short). The length of mount required is determined by the type of housing into which it is to be fitted.
The short mount is ¾ inch or 19mm long.
The long mount is 1 ½ inch or 36mm long.
Both long and short terminate in a ¾ inch BSP male thread.
All FICL candles are available in two standard lengths:
7 inches (178mm)
10 inches (254mm)
Bespoke lengths and/or mounts might be possible for significant quantities.
WHAT IS A FILTER CARTRIDGE?
A filter cartridge is a ceramic tube, which is cast open at both ends (OBE). Both ends are then closed off with food grade plastic mounts, which enable the cartridge to fit into a filter housing. The mount at the base of the tube is completely closed. The mount at the top of the tube has an opening through which filtered water flows after it has passed through the ceramic. Particles of dirt, bacteria etc. are trapped on the outside of the cartridge.
Cartridges are available as standard in two sizes - Slimline and Imperial. Bespoke lengths and or mounts might be possible for significant quantities. Please contact the FICL sales department with any specific requests.
