Filter Cartridge AquaCera W9512600 CeraMetix 10" (S) Ceramic Water Filter Candle
AquaCera W9512600 CeraMetix 10" (S) Ceramic Water Filter Candle
CeraMetix filter elements utilize the class leading ceramic micro porous outer shell combined with the advanced AquaMetix core block technology.
AquaMetix is made from the highest quality coconut shell based activated carbon and other superior adsorbent materials. Utilizing a unique compression molding manufacturing process, the base materials are melded into a solid block having a very uniform pore structure that ensures filtration consistency and high performance.
The ceramic shell and our AquaMetix block combines mechanical filtration and physical adsorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerned.
The dense pore structure and vast surface area of the compressed carbon and specialty adsorbents is ideally suited to improving taste and odor as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, MTBE, lead, mercury, asbestos, arsenic and fluoride.
The cleanable ceramic shell is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria and cysts.
: The CeraMetix\ elements have been tested in accordance with protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction (Class 1).
