Expect High Quality with Doulton’s World Class Ceramic Filters

Doulton is one of the world’s largest makers of ceramic filters. For over 185 years, Doulton has been a producer of eco-friendly, reusable cartridge filters with the same goal in mind: To provide safe, healthy, great-tasting drinking water whenever and wherever you need it.

Doultons ceramic filters are world famous for good reason. Fairey Industrial Ceramics Limited (FICL) is the sole manufacturer of the Doulton ceramic water filters.  All of the stages of FICL’s drinking water filter production adhere to rigorous ISO 9001 quality standards. Fairey Industrial Ceramics Limited holds the coveted WRAS and NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certificates, proving that the drinking water filters have passed the highest international testing standards. High quality standards are why the Doulton brand name is renowned and respected for use in home water filtration systems in the United States and abroad.

The Doulton Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filter reduces water contaminants while improving odor and taste. This ceramic filter is NSF certified for the reduction of taste, odor, particulates, cysts, bacteria, chlorine and Guinea worm. The Super Sterasyl Ceramic Filter includes a .4 GPM (Gallon Per Minute) flow rate and 2″x10″ dimensions. This ceramic filter features three stages of filtration for added protection from waterborne contaminants.

Used by many of the world’s leading relief organizations, the Doulton SS-2 Gravity Fed Filter System provides clean water in emergencies. However, with a compact size and superior performance, the SS-2 is great for a variety of environments and situations such as traveling, apartment and businesses use, boats and more. To use, simply pour untreated water into the top of the reservoir where it will pass through Doulton’s ceramic filter candles. When the water has reached the lower chamber, use the tap on the front to obtain your filtered water.

The Doulton HCPS Twin Countertop System easily connects to your existing cold water or mixer faucets via diverter valve. This countertop system is perfect for household use, but is also ideal for commercial and residential drinking water systems, reverse osmosis purification, food service applications, water coolers and more. The twin countertop system features a capacity of approximately 600 gallons. The Doulton UlraCarb Ceramic Filter Candle is sold separately.

Every purchase of a Doulton product benefits The W3 Project, a water charity created to help end the global water crisis. For more information on Doulton’s support read Exciting Announcement: Doulton Supports The W3 Project and learn more about The W3 Project at filtersfast.com/w3.
