EDEN PRARIE, Minn. — DRI-STEEM Corporation (DriSteem), a manufacturer of humidification, evaporative cooling, and water treatment products, announced the addition of a new Silver Ionization Filter to their catalog of products.

DriSteem’s Silver Ionization Filter will provide an added layer of protection against viral and bacterial proliferation within supply water for humidification and other applications where water hygiene is a concern. The Silver Ionization Filter is a stand-alone cartridge that adds silver ions to the supply water to destroy microbe cell walls providing additional disinfection.

“We are pleased to include the Silver Ionization Filter to our product catalog,” said Ryan Reimer, product manager for water treatment systems at DriSteem. “We understand that everyone's focus is to further eliminate viruses and bacteria in every way they can, especially when it comes to water supply and hygiene for humidification.”

The Silver Ionization Filter is a consumable filter that should be changed out one to two times per year, keeping in mind that replacement of the filter will also depend on water usage and incoming water quality to the filter.
