The Imperial Utracarb ceramic filter cartridge has the same benefits as the
regular Ultracarb, however, the roughly 1/3 larger diameter allows a significantly
greater flow rate. At the present time, the Imperial Ultracarb is available
only as a cartridge.
The Imperial Ultracarb cartridge is 2 3/4" O.D. by 9 3/4 long and is designed to fit most industry standard 10" water filter housing accepting double-open-end caps (DOE) cartridges.
Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, Serratia, E Coli, fecal coliform - > 99.99% removal
Cryptosporidium, Giardia Lamblia - I00 % removal (based on tests by Arizona State University)
The ATS metal ion reduction medium in the Ultracarb element effectively reduces the lead content in drinking water. (See the Lead Removal graph for the Ultracarb element.)
Total capacity for reducing chlorine is somewhat less than the Supercarb.
