Zelbrite, for Outstanding Swimming Pool Filtration
Zelbrite is manufactured to exacting standards from natural zeolitic material sourced from our mine at Werris Creek in New South Wales. This natural material was formed over 300 million years ago as a result of volcanic activity in the vicinity of a large freshwater lake. Over the passage of geological time, this material was overlain by hundreds of meters of other material giving rise to a zeolitic material of exceptional hardness and durability. In fact, a material exceptionally suited to "filtration" applications.
The active ingredient of the zeolite is "clinoptilolite", a mineral with very special properties. These include an exceptionally high surface area, an infinitely extending three-dimensional cage-like structure with large internal pore spaces, and the ability to chemically capture pollutants by a mechanism called "cation-exchange".
Exceptional Filtration Capability
These properties enable three mechanisms to interact to produce superior filtration.
First there is physical capture between particles as occurs in conventional sand filtration. Secondly there is capture of pollutants onto the very extensive surface area of Zelbrite by adsorption. Chemical pollutants such as ammonia are captured by the third mechanism of cation exchange.
The result these three mechanisms working together is superior water quality not matched by traditional methods of pool filtration.
Benefits to the user
Zelbrite is a new and exciting product which offers significant advances in the art of pool and spa filtration.
The Zelbrite advanced media offers the performance of diatomaceous earth, or better, with the convenience of a sand filter. The ultimate benefit for the user is a superior swimming-pool water environment which is both safer and more pleasant to swim in.
Zelbrite - superior water quality unmatched by traditional methods
of pool filtration.
