This carbon block filter is for use in the 10 inch full flow filter housing. This Carbon Block filter filters down to 10 microns. For a comparison, 10 microns is equivalent to "Milled Flour" or "Coal Dust".
Why Carbon Block Filters?
Carbon block is mainly comprised of activated carbon granules and a binding agent that allows the carbon granules to maintain a static position relative to each other. A carbon block filer immobilizes carbon particles to promote uniformity of performance, stopping water from channeling, which is common with GAC. GAC filters are packed in a housing or vessel and the carbon is allowed to float or move within the confines of the housing. The carbon block has a uniform pore structure that enables carbon block to achieve higher effectiveness in contaminant reduction.
