According to Mitsubishi Cleansui’s recommendations, EUC2000 cartridge is advised to be replaced either after 12 months or upon filtering 8,000 liters of water (whichever occurs first). In this article, let’s delve into the reasons why replacing EUC2000 cartridge is necessary.

What makes EUC2000 cartridge unique?

EUC2000 cartridge is exclusively manufactured and imported 100% from Japan. Specifically designed for the tap water conditions in Vietnam, it serves as a vital component in Mitsubishi Cleansui’s water purifiers. The product is backed by a genuine 6-month warranty provided by Mitsubishi Cleansui Vietnam.

EUC2000 cartridge utilizes hollow fiber membrane technology, initially developed by Mitsubishi Chemical Cleansui Corporation. It features a compact design and integrates 4 filtration layers, each serving a distinct purpose:

– Non-woven fabric: Removes impurities
– Ion exchange fiber: Eliminates dissolved lead and contaminants
– Activated carbon: Filters out harmful substances, pesticides, mold odors, residual chlorine, etc.
– Hollow fiber membrane: Consists of millions of pores, measuring 0.01 to 0.1 micrometers. This design effectively traps impurities up to 0.01 micrometers such as algae, microorganisms, turbidity, etc., ensuring only clean water and natural minerals pass through.

With a filtering capacity of up to 8,000 liters and a lifespan of 12 months, suitable for families of 4-6 people (an average water consumption of 1.5-2 liters per person per day). Additionally, the filtered water is enriched with natural minerals like sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, etc., meeting certified standards from Pasteur Institute and General Department of Standards, Metrology, and Quality.

Why is regular replacement of EUC2000 cartridge essential?

As mentioned, activated carbon adsorbs and eliminates harmful substances, pesticides, odors, mold, and organic components, as well as residual chlorine and its by-products in water.

However, adsorption capacity of activated carbon will diminish over time. Accumulated impurities can clog porous structure, causing some organic compounds to persist in filtered water and potentially impact health. If used continuously, activated carbon will no longer ensure effective filtration, odor removal, and reduction of residual chlorine, which may adversely affect health.

Additionally, retention of bacteria, microorganisms, rust, etc., over an extended period in hollow fiber membrane can lead to clogging and a reduction in filtration efficiency, affecting quality of filtered water.

In conclusion

Regularly replacing EUC2000 cartridge is crucial to ensure the product’s operational efficiency, maintain durability of water filtration system, and uphold quality of filtered water.

Depending on whichever condition occurs first, it is recommended to schedule cartridge replacement every 12 months or after 8,000 liters. This routine replacement ensures filtered water that meets the quality standards committed by manufacturer.
