Carbon Sediment Filter

Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a piece of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, utilizing chemical absorption. Each piece of carbon is designed to provide a large section of surface area, in order to allow contaminants the most possible exposure to the filter media. Extending the filter life we use a Sediment filter first to remove dirt, silt, mud and other suspended solids.

1st Stage

5 micron 10″ high-capacity polypropylene sediment filter — removes , Sand, Silt and Scale, Dirt and Mud, Other Suspended Solids. Certified to NSF/ANSI standards.

2nd Stage

A solid block carbon filter to remove chlorine and various chemicals, tastes and odors. Uses activated carbon (sometimes called activated charcoal) which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making an even more attractive bonding agent to chemicals and impurities. When water is forced through the solid carbon block, it is forced to slow down and increase the amount of contact time with the carbon, allowing the carbon bonding to take place. Mechanical Straining: The carbon is compacted into a solid brick of material. Every molecule of water is forced through the microscopic pores of carbon, effectively straining out particle matter. Certified to NSF/ANSI standards.
