Carbon Block Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 5 Micron. This 20″ x 4.5″ Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridge with 5 micron pore size is highly effective at reducing unwanted bad taste & odor and chlorine taste & odor from potable drinking water, as well as other contaminants.
Carbon Block Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 5 Micron Filtration Process
Activated carbon block is a blend of fine activated carbon, water, and a suitable binder that is mixed and molded and hardened or extruded to a cartridge filter of any size and shape. Sometimes specialized media are added along with activated carbon to provide customized performances for specific contaminants.
The binder is particularly designed and chosen to hold the carbon and other media in a fixed solid matrix, yet, not to plug up the pores of the activated carbon. Even though the binder does occlude a portion of the adsorption sites, the finer mesh size gives activated carbon block filters faster adsorption kinetics and generally two to four times greater adsorption capacity than equivalent volumes of loose granular activated carbon.
Activated carbon block filters typically have a 0.5 to 10 micron filtration capability, making it also helpful for particulate filtration, removing taste and odor from chlorine, insoluble lead reduction, and demonstrating, in some cases, removal of Giardia and Cryptosporidium.
Carbon Block Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 5 Micron Features & Benefits
High Capacity Chlorine Reduction & Excellent Chemical Contaminant Reduction.
These Carbon Block Filters employ a high grade carbon with industry-leading surface area allowing for the greatest efficiency of the carbon absorption. Higher surface area extends the life of the cartridge, maximising time between cartridge changes.
The filter consists of a sediment pre-filter screen to catch particulate matter in the water flow.
High Adsorptive Capacity and Efficiency.
Our Carbon Block Filters are manufactured from the highest quality, FDA-compliant raw materials with cutting-edge methods resulting in premium performance in reliability, absorption and flow rates.
