Standard Carbon Block Filter Cartridge


Our Carbon Block Filters are manufactured from the highest quality, FDA-compliant raw materials with cutting-edge methods resulting in premium performance in reliability, absorption and flow rates.

Filtration Process

Carbon block filter cartridges employ a high grade carbon with industry-leading surface area allowing for the greatest efficiency of the carbon absorption. Higher surface area extends the life of the cartridge, maximising time between cartridge changes.

The filter consists of a sediment pre-filter screen to catch particulate matter in the water flow.

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 “10 micron” has some capability to capture particles as small as 10 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.
