Matrikx PB1 Carbon 5″ x 2.5″
0.5 micron nominal filtration
Lead, Cyst & Turbidity reduction based on NSF/ANSI standard 53
Cyst reduction including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma
Also made from 100% coconut shell carbon. In addition, a renewable and ecologically sustainable material.
In other words, the carbon is processed into blocks using a unique binder system and proprietary manufacturing techniques. Producing filters with a greater number of micro-pores and available carbon surface area. Which display superior adsorption capacity and kinetic dynamics.
However, Replace every 6 months or if bad odour/taste returns
Most importantly, flush with sufficient water to remove carbon fines after installation
In addition, to prevent leakage, replace o ring in the housing or lubricate with very light coating of silicone gel

What is a micron?
A micron is short for micrometer or one millionth of a meter. Now that’s a very tiny unit of measure! The micron rating refers to the distance between pieces of filter media. This determines the size of particles that the filter will allow to pass through. In short, the lower the micron level of a filter, the more contaminants it can catch and purify from your water..
What is a carbon filter?
Carbon filters use a process where the pollutants adhere to the carbon particles as the water or air passes through it.
As they are useful for purifying water and purifying the air of contaminants, they are also exceptionally useful in removing offending odors from pipes attached to home or on tank water.
As a result, are commonly used for water purification, air filtering and industrial gas processing. For example the removal of siloxanes and hydrogen sulfide from biogas.
Therefore also used in a number of other applications. Including some methods of coffee decaffeination and in the recovery of precious metals such as gold.
In water purification, activated carbon removes impurities and contaminants through the chemical process of adsorption. But it is used in a wide range of applications besides water filtration.
