Franke pioneered multi-tasking kitchen taps and today, their beautifully designed FilterFlow range of taps, which dispense hot, cold and filtered water, are considered the blueprint for taps that go a little further. Combining beautifully stylish design and technologically-advanced ceramic water filtration, the Franke FilterFlow range is now available from SMC Kitchens.

The Franke FilterFlow range is the perfect addition to any nobilia kitchen. These desirable taps are a stunning complement to many of the Franke sinks in the range, creating a coordinated look with effortless style. Franke FilterFlow taps deliver hot, cold and filtered water, using an advanced ceramic cartridge. This water filtration system is protected by a robust stainless steel housing on all Franke FilterFlow taps, where indicated, adding reassuring durability to the elegant aesthetics.

How do filter taps work?

Franke Filterflow taps are connected to a compact filter system that is fitted below the sink. When you select the tap's third lever, cold water is diverted through the filter system. The system's filter cartridge removes contaminants before the freshly-filtered water travels back through a dedicated waterway inside the tap's spout.

The filtration process

Filterflow filter cartridges provide a unique and highly effective two-stage filtration process. The cartridges feature an outer ceramic shell and an inner carbon core. The fine ceramic has the ability to trap even the most microscopic of impurities, down to submicron level. The activated carbon core is manufactured from solid carbon rod, and eliminates contaminants such as chlorine and heavy materials, as well as unpleasant odours.

Which impurities does a Filterflow tap remove

Franke Filterflow taps will remove a wide range of impurities, including chlorine and chloramine, which you can often smell in the tap water. They can also remove organic matter, chemical and pharmacutical traces, metallics and sediment. Importantly, a Filterflow tap also has the capacity to remove harmful, sickness-inducing bacteria if it is present.

What about the things that are good for you?

The Filterflow tap won't remove minerals and desirable elements such as calcium, magnesium and fluoride. These are dissolved in the water and no part of the filtration process removes them from the water. They remain intact and help to ensure your water is as healthy as it is refreshing.

Technical essentials

On average, a Franke filtreflow tap will deliver around 2,500 litres of filtered water before its filter cartridge will need changing. And that couldn't be simpler. Its a 1-2-3 operation and as easy as changing a lightbulb.
