The carbon block filter has a large surface area with sediment pre-filter on the outside to remove dirt, rust and other suspended contaminants before the carbon. This gives the filter a longer life and low pressure loss through the filter. This filter reduces or removes sediment, chlorine, colour, taste, odour, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, THM’s, VOC’s and other chemicals. Ideal for rural applications where water pressure is lower. Suitable for commercial and residential.
Omnipure introduced its own carbon block filtration media in the spring of 1999. With the market demanding better, more refined filtration options, Omnipure felt the need to supply their customers the best media option available.
Omnipure’s engineering team created a new, state-of-the-art compression moulding process. This advanced method produces a strong, one-piece carbon block with an extended life. It is unsurpassed at removing chlorine, sediment, taste, odour and organic contaminants. Due to its highly uniform moulded structure, the Omnipure carbon block benefits include the elimination of carbon fines release, as well as channelling and bypass.
Omnipure filters and cartridge elements are designed to flow in a radial, outside to inside direction resulting in low pressure drop, high flow rate and increased dirt holding capacity.
What is removed/reduced?
Contaminants removed from your drinking water are dependent on the micron and media of the filter cartridge. For examples, please refer to the table below.
In the case of Carbon filtration, Omnipure offer a range of cartridges with specific media properties that target particular contaminants in your water supply (e.g. heavy metals). For further assistance in choosing a cartridge to suit your needs please call our support team on 02 9458 1111.
