Nucleation Assisted Crystallization (NAC)
“SP (Scale Prevention) 3” indicates a unique transformation of water hardness Ca(HCO3)2 into (3) components:
CaCO3 (micro-crystals) Aragonite CO2 (colloid) H2O (pure water)
Phase 1: Filtersorb SP3 double ceramic beads accelerates the transformation of the calcium and magnesium minerals out of the water solution into harmless nano sized aragonite crystal particles. Aragonite exists as tiny, crystals that do not cling to surfaces. SP3 is a layered double coated (LDC) catalytic agent that ensures that the Calcite morphs into aragonite crystals and is currently the only media available that causes this transformation.
Phase 2: As the minerals flow through the piping systems and equipment, the aragonite crystals dissolve additional calcium removing any pre-existing calcium deposits.
Phase 3: After the old calcium deposit are removed, Filtersorb SP3 form a smooth 3 – 5 micro thick corrosion prevention layer on existing pipes, o-rings, gaskets, and equipment.
No TDS change: No elements of the water are removed. There is no ion-exchange chemistry used thus the TDS of the water remains unchanged before and after the treatment.
No pH change: pH of the water remains same. Making the treated water suitable for almost any use where corrosion is concerned.
Developing this product was to find a true replacement for the conventional sodium based water softeners, ion-exchange resins or other chemicals, those are either partially functional or functions at the cost of the environment & health. Increased sodium content in water or decreased pH factor (making water acidic) directly influence the health problems, environmental damage and damage to the systems those are vulnerable to chemical corrosion due to sodium.
* * IMPORTANT **
If new metal (copper, brass, etc.) piping or fittings are used BEFORE Filtersorb media, there MUST BE a 60 day bypass period for the metal to passivate (cure). pH must be above 7.0.
Failure to do so will significantly shorten the life of the media.
This will be evident by the media color changing from white to blue or green.
* * Pressure needs to be under 80 PSI to ensure the media has enough contact time and does not clog at the top of the filter * *

Filtersorb SP3 – Health Benefits
Ion Exchange Facts*
There is 8 times more sodium in the water for every grain of hardness removed Sodium (Na+) and Hydrogen (H+) ions are linked to high blood pressure and acidic cells (known to cause cancer) Water high in H+ ions or Na+ ions will result in weak and flavorless coffee. These ion-exchanged H+ and Na+ ions corrode the internals components of the machines. All beverages should have water pH between 7.1 – 7.5. Importance of Calcium and Magnesium **
“Universal drinking water and beverages containing moderate to high levels of magnesium (10 – 100 ppm) could potentially prevent 4.5 million heart disease and stroke deaths per year worldwide. The modern processed food diet, low in magnesium and spreading globally, makes this well-researched potential of drinking-water magnesium worth serious consideration”. 1
An adequate intake of daily dietary Calcium is required to control the heart rate, blood clotting, muscle contraction, and much more. And Magnesium is an important co-factor in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body, contributing to the production of cardiovascular functions, and the production and synthesis of energy. 2
While Magnesium enhances the absorption of calcium, it also works hand in hand with calcium, one to contract muscles and the other to relax them, as well as relaxing and calming nerves. Together, they create an intricately linked relationship to support the nervous system. Although only a small amount of blood calcium is needed in the blood and soft tissues, without it your heart wouldn’t beat steadily, your muscles wouldn’t contract correctly, your blood wouldn’t clot, and your nerves wouldn’t carry messages. 2
