The solid carbon block core is based on an innovative compression molding manufacturing process whereby the base materials are melded into a solid block having a very uniform pore structure that ensures filtration consistency and highest performance as compared to an extruded process like most others. The solid carbon block core inside the ceramic micro-filter shell combines mechanical filtration and physical absorption process to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concern. The dense pore structure and vast surface area of the compressed carbon and specially absorbent, is ideally suited to improve taste and odor as well as reducing chlorine, chloramines, volatile organic compounds (a group of 50+ chemicals), MTBE, lead, mercury, asbestos, arsenic and fluoride. The cleanable filter elements are designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria, and cysts.
These filter elements have been tested in accordance with NSF protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction (Class1).
