GravityWorks Cartridge Flows Like This

Posted on

If you're looking at this cartridge you probably already know about its features and benefits. If not, see my review of the excellent Platypus GravityWorks 4.0L Filter System. I think the GravityWorks systems flow like a stream!

Its interesting to note the gray ends are foam. This is to absorb shock should the filter get jostled or dropped. Apparently, the filter material itself is brittle.

Platypus GravityWorks Filter Cartridge uses Hollow Fiber Membrane (HFM) technology. HFM is a collection of small porous tubes that can be damaged by dropping or freezing. Hollow fiber filters can filter down to 0.2 microns, which effectively filters bacteria and protozoa.

I've used the GravityWorks filtration system in the backcountry for nearly 5 years and have never had a problem with my cartridge (I'm still using my original one). I care for this filter like I care for all my gear - I use it but I don't abuse it.

Bigger than expected.

These filters are very light, but might be a little larger than you expect. They just always seem small in the images.
