The basic grade filter will remove all chlorine, taste, colour and odour but is a basic choice of filter for those mainly concerned with bad tasting or highly chlorinated water. are the most widely used carbon block devices in the world and provide previously unattainable performance at the lowest
price point. simultaneously remove chlorine taste
and odor and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while
providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient 10
μm nominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where
they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter.
The extrusion process allows the production of a carbon block with more
carbon, but a lower pressure drop. This enables a filter
to deliver extended life while removing sediment, chlorine taste and odor and
organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. The
is also widely used in filtering organic solvents. The
MATR is ideal for use in residential and commercial water
purification systems, food service, pre - and post-RO systems.
T is manufactured from high purity acid-washed
activated carbon. Its dirt-holding capacity and the absence of carbon fines
the filter of choice. A superior carbon block,
combines both high performance and integrity with an
exceptional cost-to-performance value. As a result,
virtually renders GAC filters obsolete by comparison.

Special order filters are available in varying sizes with lengths
from 1 to 60.
Standard filters are finished with a prefiltration medium.
A protective polypropylene netting is applied to the exterior
of the cartridge. Polypropylene end caps with compression
gaskets fit most standard housings.
Inquire concerning alternative filter finishing options,
including alternative end cap and housing interface styles,
a wide range of non-standard extruded filter sizes, and
non-standard prefiltration systems.
EXTRUDED CARBON = EXCEPTIONAL
filters consist of activated carbon
particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive
capacity and efficiency. filters flow in
a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased
dirt-holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular
activated carbon (GAC) filters, cartridges
will not channel or bypass, due to the extreme uniformity of
their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the
filter is greatly extended by a

*Nominal Filter Rating: Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle,
the majority of which will not pass through the filter. It is generally
interpreted as meaning that 85% of the particles of the size equal to the
nominal micron rating will be retained by the filter. (WQA Glossary of
Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).
** Absolute Filter Rating: Filter rating meaning that 99.9% (or essentially all) of
the particles larger than a specific micron rating will be trapped on or within
the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).
