Water Filtration Particle Sizes and Composition for Contamination Control
For aqueous media such as drinking water, here are some reference charts which compare ranges of relevant pollutants, and suggest different filtration mediums which are relatively effective in removing these contaminants.
*NOTE – there is an error in this chart at the very top. Instead of pm which is traditionally for picoMeters, the correct unit should be in um or microMeters. (Microns)
