  • Big Blue 1 Micron Cyst 20" 12 GPM 1" NPT Big Blue Filter Assembly with Flow-Max Full Flow 1 micron absolute cyst removal filter cartridge.
  • 12 gallon per minute (gpm) maximum recommended flow rate.
  • The filter housing is made from NSF listed pure polypropylene and will hold one high-flow 4.5 x 20 inch filter cartridge.
  • This system comes complete with a wall mounting bracket kit, filter wrench, and one Flow-Max 1 micron absolute cyst removal filter cartridge 4.5" x 20".
  • The maximum recommended temperature is 100F and the maximum recommended pressure 125 psi.Ideal for removing cryptosporidium and giardia cysts.
  • Flow rate possible is 12 gallons per minute for most applications.
  • Flow-Max cartridges are pleated, so initial pressure drop is significantly less compared to depth cartridges, such a wound, spun, melt blown and resin bonded.
  • This cyst cartridge is rated 1 micron absolute and is not washable.
  • Change every 3 to 12 months for most residential applications.
  • If sediment is present, install a 5 micron filter system ahead of this 1 micron filter.

Dual grade filter cartridges will remove 2.3 times the amount of sediment that standard spun or string wound filters remove. DGD Series cartridges are manufactured from 100% pure polypropylene and are sized for use in our Big Blue®filter housings. DGD Series cartridges are designed for purity and will not impart taste,odor or color to the liquid beingfiltered. Additionally, the polypropylene construction provides superior chemical resistance and is not prone to bacterial attack.

The DGD Series advanced design combines selective “final filtration” with appropriate “pre-filtration” to achieve up to three times the dirt-holding capacity of similar size sediment cartridges and many more times that of standard spun orstring-wound cartridges. This performance enhancement is achieved by combining two separate gradient layers in one filter. The larger diameter of the pre-filter reduces the particle load to the postfilter, allowing it to operate at higher velocities. The effective filter depth is increased to a full 233% of standard spun-polypropylene or string-wound filters. This increased depth provides for very high particulate reduction efficiencies and added loading capacity. The unique design and performance characteristics of the DGD Series cartridges make them an excellent choice for all residential, rural, municipal and commercial applications.
