STATIM Water Reservoir Filter


Please be aware of the Statim water reservoir filter that will be included to all new Statim 2000(S)(E)(G4) and 5000(S)(G4) effective April 2006 as well as with all replacement filler cap spare part kits.

GET the Spare Parts Kit: Reservoir Cap / Water Reservoir Filter

This filter is available as a stand-alone spare part for regular maintenance.

Please note the filter will not work with old reservoir caps and therefore ordering a new reservoir cap is recommended to upgrade existing field units. All replacement caps will come with a new water reservoir filter.

  • The water reservoir filter will greatly reduce the occurrence of particles entering the water reservoir and help prolong the life of the internal components
  • Backward compatible with older units when a new cap is installed
  • Avoids splashing when pouring distilled water into the reservoir
  • The filter is easily removable for monthly cleaning or when required, due to a clogged filter, by placing the filter upside down below running water

SciCan strongly recommends the water reservoir filter become a part of all Statim maintenance and repairs.
