The process illustrates the steps to follow to facilitate the installation of a Cintropur filter sleeve.

The model of filtering sleeve used is that of the Domestic generic range comprising the Domestic Line range and the Smart Line range, and the range of Cintropur UV ultraviolet water sterilizers. The filter models concerned are SL240, DUO-CTN SL240, TRIO-CTN SL240, NW25, NW25 DUO, DUO-CTN NW25, TIO, TIO-UV, DUO-UV, TRIO-UV-25W and TRIO-UV-40W. This method is valid for the Cintropur NW32 filter model which has a filter sleeve holder with centrifugal propeller and closure lid. This method is also valid for the NW280, NW340 and NW400 models of the Semi-Industrial ranges as well as for old and new NW50, NW62, NW75, NW500, NW650 and NW800 old models of the Industrial range. The difference for Semi-Industrial and Industrial models is that they have a propeller and a cover that attaches with a screw.

Filter sleeve categories for all Cintropur water filter ranges

There are 3 main categories of filter sleeves that cover 4 ranges of Cintropur filters for a range of 8 filtration thresholds.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

This Frequently Asked Questions section summarizes the answers to important questions asked by users of Cintropur filters. This question list is updated periodically.

How to identify the correct filter sleeve format?

In each image of the filter sleeve model there is a drawing that illustrates its dimensions. Measure the size (width x height) of your sleeve and compare the dimensions. NOTE: The size of the filter sleeve also identifies the Cintropur water filter model to which it belongs.

How to choose the right fineness of filtration ?

L'image illustre le maillage des manchons filtrants de 300 µm, 150 µm, 100 µm, 50 µm, 25 µm, 10 µm, 5 µm et 1 µm (grossissement 12 fois). Les manchons filtrants de 300 µm et 150 µm sont lavables; ils pourront être réutilisés plusieurs dizaine de fois.

Filtering thresholds of Cintropur filter sleeves, from coarse filtration of 300 microns to very fine filtration of 1 micron. The image illustrates the mesh of filter sleeves of 300 μm, 150 μm, 100 μm, 50 μm, 25 μm, 10 μm, 5 μm and 1 μm (magnification 12 times).

The type of water and its origins provide the information that determines the choice of the filter sleeve. Here is an indicative table that categorizes the filtration thresholds generally used according to the types of water: Storage rain <-> from 300 to 25 μm <-> 2 to 4 filters Public networks <-> from 25 to 1 μm <-> 1 filter Well <-> from 100 to 25 μm <-> 2 to 3 filters <-> drilling from 150 to 25 μm <-> 2 to 5 filters Canal / basin <-> from 100 to 25 μm <-> 3 to 4 filters Lac <-> from 150 to 25 μm <-> 2 to 5 filters River <-> from 300 to 25 μm <-> 2 to 3 filters.

(*) The well is generally supplied with rainwater, spring and alluvium.

Two physical parameters have a significant impact on the filtration of water: turbidity and the nature of its sedimentation. Turbidity refers to the content of suspended particles that makes the water cloudy and colorful. For example, diluted clay is an enemy too fluid to be filtered efficiently, requires the technique of decantation. Domestic ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis are rapidly clogged by the accumulation of clay. Semi-industrial devices that support intensive rinsing are essential if we want to obtain a permanent and effective result. The sediments are composed of micro rocky, sandy and dissolved organic debris. The volume and size of the sediments vary depending on the origins of the water that directly feeds or infiltrates wells, groundwater, ponds, canals or rainwater harvesting. Filtration of sedimentary particles works with filter sleeves of 150 to 25 microns.

In summary, it is necessary to tame the water filtration by testing several filtration thresholds with different filter sleeves. In this way, it is possible to more precisely evaluate the fouling rate to better adapt the filtration fineness and to choose the number of filters required. Cintropur SHOP (aguagreen.com)

Scale of filtration thresholds available from the Cintropur Smart Line, Domestic Line, Semi-Industrial, Industrial Old and New models.

1 micrometer = 1 micrometer = 0.001m. International symbol: μm.

In order from left to right, coarse to very fine filtration:

300 μm* | 150 μm* | 100 μm | 50 μm | 25 μm | 10 μm | 5 μm | 1 μm

(*) washable filter sleeve

When using multiple filters, it is important to respect the intermediate filtration levels. Examples A, B and C:

  1. Two filters: 150 μm first, 100 μm second;
  2. Three filters: 150 μm first, 100 μm second, 50 μm third;
  3. Four filters: 150 μm in 1st, 100 μm in 2nd, 50 μm in 3rd, 25 μm in 4th.

The more the water is clean, the finer the filtration thresholds can be applied.

In summary, the filtration thresholds of the Cintropur filter sleeve ranges are classified into 5 main groups:

300 and 150 μm = coarse filtration; 100 and 50 μm = average filtration; 25 and 10 μm = standard filtration; 5 μm = fine filtration; 1 μm = very fine filtration.

NOTE: Filter sleeves of 300 and 150 μm are washable for reuse a maximum of times. They are used primarily to rough the first stage of filtration, especially to retain plant and organic debris such as leaves, twigs, stones, insects, etc., the size of which does not exceed 2 to 5 millimeters.

Can we purify water with filter sleeves?

The answer is no.

The filter sleeves, roller with ropes or membranes refine the water. Water purification is a higher level of water treatment comprising several categories that develop different processes depending on the water or the liquid to be purified. The activated carbon treatment, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis or ultraviolet radiation are examples. NOTE: Filtration by filter sleeve does not produce drinking water unless the filtered water has already been treated beforehand such as water from the public network.

In terms of water purification, Cintropur has two processes to produce drinking water: activated carbon category (Cintropur skin and Carbolite) and UV category (ultraviolet radiation). For water other than that of the public network that is to be made fit for human consumption, an analysis by an approved laboratory is essential. The results of this analysis will validate one of these processes or the implementation of the two treatment systems.

Should we filter the water conveyed by the public network ?

It is advisable to install a filter with a 25 μm filter sleeve at the main water inlet (water meter or major valve) to protect all the installations from a possible deposit release when there is work. on the outer pipes. Many works are regularly undertaken on the public network to modernize it, and it is not uncommon for sand, rust particles or stones to escape from the purges.

Are Disposable Filter Sleeves 100 μm, 50 μm, 25 μm, 10 μm, 5 μm and 1 μm reusable ?

Yes in general. Everything depends on its use. Disposable filter sleeves can be cleaned in the washer at 40 ° C maximum. Gradual fraying will be caused at each cleaning. In French Guyana, for example, the water used for showers is very clayey. This requires cleaning every 10 days on average! For drinking water, we do not recommend it.

Can Cintropur Filter Sleeves be used to filter liquids other than water ?

Yes. The original design of the Cintropur sleeves has been for industrial use and food since 1950. Oils, mineral oils, fruit juices, vegetable juices, alkaline liquids, natural aromatic liquids, etc., whose viscosity allows it.

At what temperatures do Cintropur filter sleeves resist ?

The maximum allowed temperature is 50°C as filters.

My plumber / heating technician asks me what is the filtration area of the filter sleeves and their loss of flow. What is it exactly and why is he asking me that ?

The surface and the filtration volume of the filter sleeves are indicated in the documentation which you will receive in PDF by return of email to SHOP@aguagreen.com indicating the model of filter concerned. As for the loss of flow and pressure, it is the loss of pressure and therefore the decrease in the volume of water flowing per hour caused by the filtration threshold of a filter sleeve. The finer the filter sleeve, the higher the loss of pressure and flow.

To get an idea, here is a table summarizing a loss of average flow based on a pressure of 5 bar:

300 µm: 0,120 m3/h 150 µm: 0,280 m3/h 100 µm: 0,410 m3/h 50 µm: 0,635 m3/h 25 µm: 0,805 m3/h 10 µm: 1,060 m3/h 5 µm: 1,280 m3/h 1 µm: 1,655 m3/h

NOTE: these figures relate to the supply of a public network. For other types of water, flow loss increases with total turbidity. When water is heavily loaded, the saturation of the filter sleeve and the loss of flow accelerate.
