Pure BCC 0.5 Micron Silver Impregnated Carbon Block Water Filter Replacement Cartridge 10" x 2.5"

Carbon block cartridges are one of the most effective and widely used technology in the point of use water treatment industry today. Solid carbon block cartridges, or simply carbon blocks, are used either as standalone treatment methods or in a system with other cartridge types.

Carbon is a very versatile and highly effective water treatment medium. It has immense surface area. Approximately half a kilogram of carbon contains a surface area of over 50 hectares (0.5 square kilometers). It is the best known treatment for organic chemicals, volatile organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine and its by-products. It is also an unchallenged taste-and-odor improver. When arranged in solid carbon or extruded carbon block format, it also provides very high quality particulate filtration, in some cases down into the submicron level.

This filter cartridge is impregnated with silver for the added benefits of carbon AND the bacteriostatic properties of silver impregnation.

Whilst carbon effectively removes odors and taste issues from water, it will leave behind microscopic metal compounds in the form of minute ash/dust particles, which in turn prove to be a source of nourishment for bacteria. This bacteria feeds off the nutrients in the insoluble ash and can then be flushed into the drinking water supply. 

Silver Impregnated Carbon is proven to stop the growth of ash/dust fed bacteria

Filtration Process:
When a cell of bacteria is absorbed into the carbon's structure, it comes into contact with silver ions. 

The sulphurhydryl group already within the bacterial cell reacts with the silver, producing a silver sulphur complex.
 

The complex immobilizes the respiratory activity of the bacterial cell by preventing the transfer of hydrogen and an oxidative reaction.

The cell cannot reproduce and dies, reducing the risk of gastro illness by ingesting bacteria.

Features and Benefits:

  • 10" x 2.5"
  • 0.5 micron

Cartridge Guide

Filter cartridge manufacturers rate cartridges in "microns". Microns are a size measurement of the pore size, so the smaller the number, the tighter the filter. One-micron Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridges are for drinking water only. In general, they are too tight to filter large amounts of water without slowing the flow to unacceptable levels.

Filter cartridge manufacturers also use the words "absolute" and "nominal" to describe their products' micron ratings. Absolute means absolute. Nominal means "more or less."

It is the micron size and the physical size of the cartridge which determines what that particular carbon block cartridge can be used for.

For whole house filtration you can go as low as 5 micron. But for drinking water you would want to use from the 5 micron size down smaller.

Carbon block cartridges are available in a variety of sizes and flow rates, and effectively provide good general-purpose drinking water filtration.

Fully disposable cartridges
