The Carbosyl ceramic filter elements are designed to remove suspended solids,
pathogenic bacteria, chlorine, aluminum, and organic chemicals. The Carbosyl
ceramic is manufactured by immersing the Sterasyl ceramic in a proprietary
resin and then re-firing it (twice fired in excess of 1000°C). As a result, the micropores and tunnels in the
Carbosyl ceramics are lined with active carbon. The working surface area of the
activated carbon in excess of 10,000 square meters. The permeability of the
Carbosyl is somewhat lower than the Sterasyl due to the activated carbon lining
and is reflected in a reduced flow rate.
The Carbosyl candle and cartridge is NSF listed and conforms to the requirements of NSF Standards for aesthetic (number 42) and health (number 53) benefits with respect to cyst, turbidity, particulate reduction and self-sterilizing effects and it is registered with the U.S. EPA (registration number 69096-2).
The Carbosyl is available as either a candle or a cartridge. It is used primarily in pressure housings. The Carbosyl is suggested for use with waters suspected of being contaminated with organic chemicals (herbicides, pesticides, solvents) and/or chlorine.

*Free Chlorine Removal
The active carbon within the pores of the ceramic element adsorbs the hypochlorous acid (HOCI) formed by the mixture of water with free chlorine to produce chloride ions (Cl- ). These are dissolved in the water thereby removing the taste and odor of chlorine. Performance testing has shown 100% removal of chlorine from 1,333 gallons of water dosed with 1ppm free chlorine at a flow rate of 1.5 liters per minute; TOC 0.6 mg/l.
