Doulton RIO 2000 High Flow Ceramic Water Filter System

The RIO 2000 is a multi candle ceramic filter module for use where the finest water quality is required.

Because of it's 0.9 micron absolute rating it is also suitable for private water supplies where the source is micro-biologically contaminated.

The Doulton RIO 2000 is a 6 element ceramic filter module that installs inside a 10" x 2.5" Jumbo / Big Blue type water filter housing and is a great alternative to UV water treatment systems since it does not require electricity.

The Sterasyl ceramic filters are impregnated with silver to prevent bacterial growth. Filters can be cleaned with a brush or scotch brite pad when dirty to restore flow.

System comes complete with 10" x 4.5" Housing, Candle Module / Plenum, 6 Ceramic Candles and Housing Spanner

Doulton RIO 2000 High Flow Ceramic Water Filter System

The RIO 2000 is the most efficient cyst removal system available and has been tested successfully in the United States with live Cryptosporidium.

With a flow rate in excess of 33 litres per minute, the RIO 2000 is suitable for high-flow applications and is designed around a small footprint to allow parallel installations for even higher volumes.

If you did require faster flow rates you can install 2 of these systems in parallel to each other to double the maximum flow rate.

There is a typical water pressure drop of around 2.5 BAR due to the nature of the ceramic filters and therefore more than one RIO 2000 may be needed and plumbed in parallel if your application requires higher water flow.

For full technical specifications please see the downloadable data sheet on the attachments tab.

Please note: This unit is only designed to remove pathogens.

Due to the microporous structure of the ceramic filters, we would always recommend installing a pre-filtration unit with a 5 - 10 micron carbon or sediment filter installed before the RIO. Doing so will increase the longevity of the ceramic candles and prevent them from clogging at an advanced rate.
