The applications for these pleated carbon-based filter cartridges include drinking water for residential and commercial use, and in process and wastewater applications for industry. These filters are capable of removing a wide range of soluble and insoluble contaminants as compared to most water filter systems where the sediment and activated carbon stages are separate and often require separate housings. NanoCeram-PAC filters are highly efficient for removing chlorine, bromine, and iodine; and should also prove to be efficient with other contaminants known to be removed by carbon such as halogenated organics, endocrine disruptors and other soluble toxic substances. This is in addition to proven effectiveness at removing pathogenic microbes, turbidity, color and odor.
This carbon technology is fully-commercialized in pleated filter form under the tradename of NanoCeram-PAC are now available in the longer configurations that are often used in industrial filter housings.
