Phoenix Carbon Filter Cartridges
The Carbon Filter Cartridges are the core of the Phoenix water filter. The carbon filters remove heavy metals, fluoride, bacteria, cysts, parasites and chemicals (see lab results here). They are made from the finest coconut-shell-based activated carbon and are impregnated with silver to prevent bacterial growth. These filter elements are designed that particles even less than 0.5 microns in size are trapped in its pore structure. One pair of filters is capable of filtering upto 20,000 litres of water before requiring replacement. A pair of Carbon filters produce up to 8 litres of drinking water in a single hour. You can also double the filtration rate by adding another pair to your Phoenix Gravity system to produce 8 litres of great-tasting water in less than half an hour.
What is in the Box?
- One pair of Carbon Filter Cartridges
- Assembly Instructions (English/Portuguese/Spanish)
The Phoenix filters the following;
- Greater than 99.9999% of E.coli, Salmonella, Cholera, Terrigena, and other bacteria.
- Greater than 99.9% of Cysts such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
- Greater than 98% of Heavy Metals ((Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead and Nickel)
- Greater than 98% of VOC’s
- Greater than 98% of Pesticides
- Greater than 98% of Chemical Contaminants (Such as Chlorine)
- Bad Odors and Bad Tastes
- The Phoenix Carbon purification cartridges are impregnated with silver to prevent bacteria growth inside the cartridge.
…and what it doesn’t remove?
- Salts & Mineral Content (such as Calcium & Magnesium)
- Water Hardness (Activated Carbon does not change your water hardness)
- Fluoride (F) (Phoenix only filters up to 90%)
The Phoenix Carbon purification cartridges are impregnated with silver to prevent bacteria growth inside your filter element.
*The flow rate is calculated with the upper chamber completely full. The flow rate decreases as water level declines.
