Water Filters in UAE
About Water Filters
Water filters are devices that remove harmful impurities from water to produce water that is safe for human consumption. Water filters are classified into five major types based on the technology on which they operate. These filters are carbon filters, reverse osmosis, water ionizers, UV filters and infrared filters. Portable Water filters are used in domestic environments to purify drinking water from the faucet. Water filters are also used at water purifying plants to purify the water supply of entire cities. Some Water filters are manufactured to remove a single pollutant but there are also water filters that combine technology to remove two or more contaminants from the water.
Carbon filters purify the water by removing sediments or silt from the water and hence are also called pre-filters. They also purify the water by reducing the chlorine content and other contaminants which improve the taste and smell of the water. UV filters purify water by passing ultraviolet radiation through the water which kills bacteria and other pollutants. UV filters are the latest addition to water filtering techniques. Water ionizers reduce the acidity content of the water by passing the water over electrically charged plates.
The most popular type of filter is the reverse osmosis filter because it has the ability to remove all kinds of pollutants from the filter. The best location in UAE to find companies that manufacture and supply all kinds of water filters are Najda street in Abu Dhabi and Al Aweer in Dubai.
