What are Activated Carbon Filters?
Activated carbon filters are barriers that capture substances that contaminate your drinking water. Activated carbon filters remove the contaminants through adsorption, meaning organic compounds stick to the filter’s surface. “Activated carbon” means that the carbon is treated by heat and/or steam during the manufacturing process. This opens the pores of the filter, therefore the increasing surface area and giving the carbon more capacity to hold contaminants. This allows the water to flow through completely and catch substances.
Activated carbon filters have a large surface area, along with being extremely porous. They are effective at reducing bad tastes, odors, and other particles in water. The pores are tiny and measured in microns, so the smaller the micron, the finer the filtration.
Why are Activated Carbon Filters Important?
Carbon filters are critically important when it comes to capturing pollutants and containments. Carbon filters are rated for CTO (chlorine, taste, and order) removal along with VOCs (volatile organic compounds). A Carbon “Block” Filter can also protect against organisms smaller than a micron, such as lead and microbial cysts. The filters work like a screen door: They keep the unwanted elements from passing through but allow clean water to pass through.
