Material for Water Filter to get the clean water

Garnet (USA) *1
Most ideal for use in domestic industrial water filtretion due to high
density and the high level of hardness and toughness. It is efficient for removing particles, sediments, mud and suspendent solids in the water.

Zeolite Sand (Australia) *2

Zeolite have an unusual crystaltine structure and with greater absorbing power.

Anthracite Carbon (USA)
Reduce chlorine, smell and chemica meanwhile trapping the sediments, being the primary function the carbon, it leaves some chlorine in the water.

Mining Graded Sand (Local)
Most idea for use in domestic industrial water due to high level of hardness and toughness. It is efficient for removing particles, sediments, mud and suspendent solid in the water.

Fine Silicon Sand
Removes dirts prevent disease such as Tyhoid, Cholera, Bihdryia
Prevent Virus like :Tyhoid, Cholera, Bihdryia and Amoeba

*1 People love garnets because of their colors and shape. The most common color is deep red, but they also come in black, green, cream, and other colors. Perfect garnet crystals have 12 diamond-shaped sides. Clear (but colored) garnets are used in jewelry, but garnets more commonly contain tiny inclusions that make them opaque and 'dirty' looking. The unusual hardness of garnets (H ~ 7) makes non-jewelry garnets great in sandpaper.

*2 Zeolites are an unusual group of minerals and are becoming an important asset as a healing crystal. They combine, rarity, beauty, complexity and unique crystal habits. Many like to use the healing effects of Zeolites. Healing properties differ depending on variety. Clear Apophyllite is used to bring a spiritual consciousness. Stilbite aids psychic knowing, guidance, and direction. We will be adding more about the healing properties of Zeolites in the near future.

How to recycle plastic?

All plastics can be recycled but what is collected depends on what scrap dealers want to buy. So check with your local recycling, centre first, To raise acceptance by scrap dealers, do these: rinse and dry the bottles, flatten PET bottles, separate the different kinds of plastic (caps and labels), and remove paper labels and stickers.

These can be recycled:
  • PET bottles (that used t6 contain carbonated drinks, mineral water, cooking oil)
  • Bottles and containers for packing foodstuff, toiletries, lubricant oils
  • Film-grade plastic (bags, sweet and fruit wrappers, instant noodle packs, fruit wrappers)
  • Household plastic ware (pots, baskets, cutlery, kitchen ware, hangers, furniture)
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) items (pipes, casings, gutters, water pipes)
  • Miscellaneous: blister packs, egg cartons, drinking straws, video cassettes, CDs, raffia, toothbrush, pens,
  • Plastic parts from computers and electrical appliances
  • Automobile plastics (bumper, spoiler, dashboards, mudguard)
  • Polystyrene. These are currently not collected for recycling or cannot be recycled:
  • Containers for hazardous materials (chemicals, paints, agro-chemicals)
  • Laboratory apparatus
  • Nylon
  • Soft plastic-aluminium packs for packing biscuits, coffee and creamer. These are not recycled because the process of segregating both materials is lengthy.

What is it recycled into?

Recycled resin is used alone or mixed with virgin resin to make all kinds of goods, such as non-food grade plastic products, car interiors, packaging items, plastic lumber and synthetic fibres.

Why recycle plastic?

Plastics are derived from non-renewable fossil fuels. As they cannot decay naturally, they take up precious landfill space. When burnt in dumpsites, plastics release toxic fumes. Plastics production involves the use of potentially harmful chemicals, which are added as stabilizers or colorants.
