The micro-pores within the cleanable Black Berkey. Purification elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.
Purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance.
Purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, cloudiness, trihalomethanes, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs and.... Purification elements fit most gravity flters, existing gravity filtration systems can be upgraded.
This vastly improves their ability to remove unwanted contaminates. No need for expensive disposable filters. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey. Purification elements with a ScotchBrite.Pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification.

Reduction elements are designed for use in conjunction with Black Berkey. Water purification elements to adsorb the following unwanted elements found in drinking water. Fluoride Arsenic V and pre-oxidized Arsenic III Other residual heavy metal ions TECHNICAL INFORMATION: FLUORIDE : Testing for fluoride was based on 20-30ppm of the ion in the influent aqueous solution at a flow rate of no more than 3 gpm (11 lpm) per cubic foot of media.Under optimum conditions, effluent concentrations of less than 50 ppb were readily achieved (>99.75% reduction). ARSENIC : This product uniquely targets the entire family of arsenic oxide anions as well as the arsenic cations. REPLACEMENT : Under normal conditions it is recommended that each set of two PF-2. Elements be replaced after 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters). System is about 3.25 gallons (12.3 liters) therefore the PF-2. Filters should be replaced after 1,000/3.25 (3,785/12.3) or 307 refills. If the system is refilled about one time per day, the PF-2. S should be replaced after 10 months, if the system is refilled about twice per day, the PF-2.
S should be replaced about every five months. Actual capacity is dependent on the presence of other competing contaminants in the source water. High levels of fluoride, arsenic and heavy metals may reduce the capacity and efficiency of the elements. NOTES : 1 Do not boil this element. Elements reduce filtration flow rate by 15-20%.
3 Our original tests were done using gravity alone to purge the PF-2. Since then, we have added a step by using purging buttons which are much more efficient at removing any residual process dust from the PF-2. The test does not distinguish between activated alumina Al. So we had to use the total count of aluminum and activated alumina in our tests. 4 The media used in the PF-2.
Filter elements contains high-grade activated alumina Al. , which currently is the most efficient media available for extracting fluoride from water.
Below are the results we obtained when testing the PF-2. Elements the water was not pre-filtered through the Black Berkey. The reduction over time is due to additional residual process dust being washed free from the PF-2. Elements as the system is used. To give a scale for comparison purposes we include test results from a national brand toothpaste and water boiled in an aluminum pan.
National brand toothpaste 52.878 ppm aluminum Water boiled in an aluminum pan for five minutes: 2.791 ppm aluminum PF2. 029 ppm aluminum While the above results indicate that the residual process dust adds a minute amount of activated alumina to the water, the Black Berkey. Purification elements reduce aluminum from the water. We tested water that naturally contained. 320ppm aluminum and filtered it through the combination of the Black Berkey.
And the post conditioned PF-2. The results showed a net reduction in aluminum contamination Raw influent.
320ppm - Effluent after passing through the Black Berkey. Again, the standard tests cannot distinguish between aluminum (Al) and activated alumina Al. Nevertheless, the tests showed a net reduction by the Black Berkey. Element in the combination of naturally occurring aluminum plus any residual activated alumina Al. Process dust from the PF-2.
