Detailed Description for Carbon Filter

Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses a bed of activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption.

Each particle/granule of carbon provides a large surface area/pore structure, allowing contaminants the maximum possible exposure to the active sites within the filter media. One pound (454 g) of activated carbon contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres (40 Hectares).
There are 2 predominant types of carbon filters used in the filtration industry:
 Powdered block filters and
Granular activated filters.
 In general, carbon block filters are more effective at removing a larger number of contaminants, based upon the increased surface area of carbon. Many carbon filters also use secondary media such as silver to prevent bacteria growth within the filter. Alternatively, the activated carbon itself may be impregnated with silver to provide this bacteriostatic property.

Uses:

o It has been proven to be very efficient for removing certain impurities and improving the taste and clarity of drinking water.
o Used in many household items including filtered water pitchers, refrigerator water and ice and in coffee maker (water) filters.
