QPoint® Shower Water Filter Assembly

Combining fixed Docking Station and exchangeable Filter Capsule
for up to 2 months use


The QPoint Shower Water Filter Assembly with exchangeable Filter Capsule for up to 62 day (2 months) use provides water filtered through a 0.2 µm sterilizing-grade membrane at the point-of-use 1, 2.

The high technology integrated prefiltration layer delivers exceptional particulate trapping capacity with good flow rates, and protects the sterilizing grade membranes enabling long performance life. The Filter Capsule retains bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and particles.

A combination of technologies within the Filter Capsule helps to minimize the risk of retrograde contamination. However, these technologies do not replace local water testing and/or hygiene measures at the local environment.

The chrome finish Docking Station will fit directly to all standard water outlets. The combination of the fixed Docking Station with the disposable Filter Capsule is compact, reduces waste, reduces costs and improves logistics for the user.

 
Features Benefits
Double layer 0.2 µm sterilizing grade filter membranes Retains microorganisms without volume restriction
Fixed Docking Station and exchangeable Filter Capsule Waste reduction, cost reduction and improved logistics
Robust pre-filtration Higher dirt capacity for better flow rates
Compatible with commonly used systemic disinfection Integrates with water safety plans

Pictorial Installation Guide

Description

The Pall QPoint Docking Station - Shower Assembly with Quick Connect Inlet is supplied non-sterile.

For full details, refer to the Instructions for Use.

     
  • Remove existing shower head.
 
  • Wash hands.
 
  • Insert supplied gasket into shower hose outlet.
  • Attach QPoint Shower Docking Station.
 
  • Place in shower holder in preparation for Filter Capsule installation.

QPoint Filter Capsule - Rose Outlet

Connection

     
  • Ensure QPoint Docking Station is clean and dry to avoid inadvertent contamination.
  • Ensure o’ring seal is visible, in position and intact.
 
  • The plastic unit packaging can be used to protect the device from cross contamination during installation. Leave in place during installation.
  • While holding Filter Capsule securely through unit packaging, peel back lid.
 
  • Align embossed triangle on the top surface on the Filter Capsule with the marker triangle in the centre of the Docking Station front panel.
 
  • With the triangles aligned, lift Filter Capsule upwards to the Docking Station and rotate a 1/4 turn to the right.
  • The Filter Capsule labelling details should be aligned beneath the Docking Station front panel.

Disconnection

     
  • The locking pin will engage Filter Capsule and the marker bar will be aligned with the Docking Station marker triangle.
 
  • Check engagement. Try to rotate Filter Capsule to the left; if there is no movement Filter Capsule is locked.
 
  • Remove protective plastic unit packaging prior to use.
  • The Filter Capsule can be used for 62 days (2 months).
  • Suspending use following initial connection does not extend filter life.
 
  • Lift release button on the Docking Station to disengage Filter Capsule.
  • Turn Filter Capsule to the left to remove.
  • Used Filter Capsules should be disposed of according to local procedures.

Systemic Chemical Disinfection Filter Capsules

A wide variety of systemic chemical treatments are used to mitigate microbial contamination within potable water supplies to hospitals, hotels, leisure centers, schools, apartment blocks and other building complexes. Such chemical treatments may be used in conjunction with Pall Point-of-Use Water Filters as part of the engineering solution.

Testing has been performed to support compatibility of Pall QPoint Filter Capsules (QR212U, QR22U) with a range of common systemic chemical treatments, particularly shock treatments completed during periods of critical water system contamination.

Active chlorine at 100 parts per million (ppm)

Following exposure to active chlorine (100 ppm) for 1 hour at 72 °F (22 °C) all Filter Capsules passed. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Continuous treatment with active chlorine for up to 62 days (up to 7 ppm)

Following exposure to up to 7 ppm active chlorine for 62 days at 72 °F (22 °C) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Shock treatment with pH > 12

Following exposure to pH>12 for 1 hour at 72 °F (22 °C) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Shock treatment with peracetic acid (1000 ppm)

Following exposure to 1000 ppm peracetic acid for 2 hours at 140 °F (60 °C) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Conclusion

Pall QPoint Filter Capsules maintain their filter integrity and are compatible with shock treatment of 100 ppm active chlorine for 1 hour, continuous active chlorine treatment of up to 7 ppm for 62 days, pH>12 for one hour or 1000 ppm peracetic acid for 2 hours.

Surface Disinfection Filter Capsules

  • QPoint Filter Capsules (QR212U, QR22U) incorporate an effective bacteriostatic compound to minimise the risk of inadvertent retrograde microbial contamination. However any contamination will depend on local environmental and hygiene conditions. If a filter is visibly, or known to have been contaminated, it should be replaced.
  • QPoint Filter Capsules should not come into contact with contaminated surfaces or cloths.
  • If there is a local Standard Operating Procedure in place for Filter Capsule cleansing and hygiene, which includes a new or sterile wipe/cloth for each filter outlet, then the external surfaces of the Filter Capsule (QR212U, QR22U) may be cleansed with the following common sanitising solutions containing Iso-Propyl Alcohol, Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, Benzyl Ammonium Compounds, Iodides and non-ionic surfactants.
    The following solution compositions (qualitative compositions) have been tested:
    • Solution A: n-propanol (29%), propionic quaternary ammoniums, polhexanide.
    • Solution B: glycolic acid, propionic quaternary ammoniums, n-propanol, non-ionic surfactants, fragrance, colour.
    • Solution C: propionic quaternary ammoniums, guanidium acetate, n-propanol, non-ionic surfactants, excipients.
    • Solution D: alkyl (60% C14, 30% C16, 5% C12, 5% C18) dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (2.25%), alkyl (68% C12, 32% C14) dimethylethylbenzyl ammonium chloride (2.25%), inert ingredients (95.5%).
    • Solution E: di-isobutylphenoxyethoxyethyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (0.28%), isopropanol (17.2%), inert ingredients (82.52%).
    • Solution F: povidone iodine (4%), excipients.
    • Solution G: n,n-didecyl-n-methyl-poly(oxyethyl) ammonium propionate (2.5-10%), sodium n-lauryl b-iminodipropionate (2.5-10%), ethoxylated isotridecanol (2.5-10%), monopropylene glycol (10-25%), ethane-1,2-diol,homopolymere (0-2.5%), polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (0-2.5%).
  • Periodic wiping or spraying of the housing / outlet with the solutions listed above does not adversely affect the polyester (polybutylterepthalate) housing material of the QPoint Filter Capsules. At no point should the Filter Capsule be disconnected during cleansing.
