This standard Carbon GAC Filter Cartridge (Granular Activated Carbon) is simply carbon in the form of granules. This increases the surface area available for absorption of the unwanted chemicals within your water supply. It also extends the life of the cartridge, maximizing time between cartridge changes.
This filter cartridge is Tested and Certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for material requirements only.
Features & Benefits
This standard size cartridge is compatible within standard 10” housings/filter systems. Pleated cartridges are particularly useful for low pressure applications such as domestic water supplies.
The micron rating of a filter cartridge determines the ability of the filter’s media to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to. For example, a filter that is marked or rated “5 micron” has some capability to capture particles as small as 5 micrometers. However, the micron rating does not determine the exact efficiency of contaminant holding capability of the filter.
In the case of Carbon filtration, specific media properties can be obtained so as that the filter will target particular contaminants in your water supply (e.g. heavy metals). For further assistance in choosing a cartridge to suit your needs please call our support team on 02 9458 1111.
