Triple Action Nano Zinc Carbon Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 1 Micron. The 20″ x 4.5″ Triple Action Nano Zinc Water Filter is a three layers structure cartridge made of Nano-Zinc Polypropylene and Granular Activated Carbon. The outer layer is made of Nano-Zinc Polypropylene for removal of sediments and sludge. The middle layer is made of Granular Activated Carbon for removal of Chlorine, Taste and Odours. And the inner layer if made of Nano-Zinc Polypropylene for bacteriostatic purposes (prevents growth of bacteria). Therefore, the filter is capable of filtering sediment, sludge, heavy metals, chlorine, taste and odours.
- Nano-Zinc Polypropylene filter
- Three-layers structure cartridge
- High contaminant holding capacity
Triple Action Nano Zinc Carbon Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 1 Micron Filtration Process
- Outer Layer: Nano-Zinc Polypropylene (Removes sediment & Sludge)
- Middle Layer: Granular Activated Coconut Carbon (Removes chlorine, taste & odor)
- Inner Layer: Nano-Zinc Polypropylene (Inhibits bacterial growth)
Activated Carbon Block
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.

Triple Action Nano Zinc Carbon Filter Cartridge 20 Inch, 1 Micron Certifications
- NSF/ANSI 42
Filters are certified to reduce aesthetic impurities such as chlorine and taste/odor. These can be point-of-use (under the sink, water pitcher, etc.) or point-of-entry (whole house) treatment systems.
- NSF/ANSI 53
Filters are certified to reduce a contaminant with a health effect. Health effects are set in this standard as regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Health Canada. Both standards 42 and 53 cover adsorption/filtration which is a process that occurs when liquid, gas or dissolved/suspended matter adheres to the surface of, or in the pores of, an adsorbent media. Carbon filters are an example of this type of product.
