Ultraclean Waterra 0.45 micron Groundwater Filters for Metals Analysis
We manufacture inline disposable filters in our clean room facility in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Most popular are FHT-45 Waterra 0.45 micron Groundwater Filters used in metal analysis in groundwater monitoring programs all around the world. Their job is to remove the suspended particulate from groundwater samples so the dissolved metal content can be determined. Also available are 0.1, 0.22, 1.2 and 5 micron pore sizes.
Simply plug a Waterra filter into your pump tubing or bailer. Run the water through the inline disposable filter and capture the flow in a sample vial. We have a rigorous testing protocol that assures that our very high quality groundwater filters are non-detect for 33 metals as illustrated below.
- Filter media is polyethersulfone, body is polyethylene and media support is polypropylene
- Excellent particle retention above the target micron size range
- Maximum utility gained from the media, even with the most turbid samples
- Built in compound 3/8” threaded nipple and ½” barbed inlet
- PFAS, PFOS & PFOA free

Not all water filters are created equal
FHT-45 Waterra 0.45 micron Groundwater Filters for high turbidity contains 600 cm² of media. Some products on the market call themselves high capacity, but how could this be true when they contain less than 60% of the same filter media?
