Multipure's exclusive Solid Carbon Block filter reduces a wide range of contaminants of health concern without removing the beneficial minerals in the water. This makes Multipure water ideal for everything from food preparation to cooking and drinking.
Multipure's innovative filter technology provides exceptional performance. The proof lies in the products' certification by NSF International to reduce a wide range of contaminants that affect the taste, odor, color, and healthfulness of the water. Multipure Drinking Water Systems reduce MTBE, chlorination byproducts, PCBs, chloramine, VOCs, heavy metals, and numerous other contaminants. Multipure Drinking Water Systems consistently meet the high standards and needs of its customers all across the world.
Almost all Multipure Drinking Water Systems include the necessary installation materials, and Multipure filters are economical, long-lasting, and easily maintained. Multipure provides a Lifetime Warranty on its system housings, as well as a one-year warranty on all accessories.
Multipure Drinking Water Systems offer superior quality, innovation, and performance, which means customers always get cleaner, tastier, and more healthful water. With a Multipure Drinking Water System, you always have the right drinking water at hand.
What Sets Multipure Apart
Although most companies that sell drinking water systems offer devices that can treat chlorine in water, very few of those companies offer drinking water treatment systems that are NSF-certified to reduce contaminants under both NSF/ANSI Standard 42 (Aesthetics), NSF/ANSI Standard 53 (Health Effects), and NSF/ANSI Standard 401 (Emerging Contaminants). Multipure is one of the few companies whose products are NSF-certified to reduce such a wide array of drinking water contaminants, including such classes as disinfection byproducts or gasoline additives - contaminants that can get into water sources through pollution or leaks.
NSF certification is not something that every water filtration company is willing to put the effort toward. Any company can say their activated carbon block filter products meet NSF standards. But unless they can show official NSF certification, you cannot trust with absolute certainty that their activated carbon water purification system meets their claims with respect to contaminant reduction, and you cannot trust with absolute certainty that their water filtration system is not adding anything harmful to the water.
NSF certification requires continuous inspection and testing to make sure the certified company adheres to the highest standards of quality with respect to contaminant reduction. Thanks to NSF certification, Multipure activated carbon block water treatment products are ones you absolutely know you can trust. That is the Multipure difference.
Multipure is the industry leader because it is a pioneer in drinking water treatment, and it possesses the integrity and credibility due to intensive internal quality assurance confirmed by the rigorous scrutiny of NSF certification.
Multipure Drinking Water Systems utilize Multipure's innovative and proprietary solid carbon block filter. This filter employs multiple components and materials to reduce the presence of a wide variety of contaminants in water:
Mechanical Filtration: The water passes through a pre-filter that traps dirt, sand, and particles that affect the taste and overall appearance of the water. After passing through the pre-filter, the water then passes through the solid carbon block, where particles as small as 0.5 microns are physically trapped by the filter. Asbestos, cysts, and particulates are reduced through mechanical filtration at the sub-micron level.
Electrokinetic Adsorption: The pre-filter acquires a positive molecular charge as water passes through it. Since most contaminants exhibit a negative charge in water, the filter fibers electrokinetically attract these negatively-charged particles onto the positively-charged filter surface. Generally, these particles are too small to be trapped by mechanical filtration.
Physiochemical Adsorption: The carbon block filter is a blend of selected activated carbons and other media that reduce aesthetic contaminants and health-related contaminants by adsorbing particles to its surface. Because the carbon block is densely compacted, it provides a longer contact time with the water, and thus, better performance than many other filtration technologies.
Nationally recognized standards established for the drinking water treatment industry confirm that the most effective systems for the removal of both aesthetic and harmful contaminants are those that utilize solid carbon block filters. Multipure is the original developer of solid carbon block technology, and has been the leader and innovator in the water treatment industry since 1970. Multipure, and its remarkable solid carbon block filter, is synonymous with superior quality and exceptional innovation. With a Multipure Drinking Water System, you are guaranteed the best.
Adsorption vs. Absorption
Multipure filtration utilizes a process called adsorption. Adsorption differs from the more commonly known absorption; adsorption refers to the transfer of the particles of a gas, liquid, or dissolved solid onto a surface, while absorption refers to the incorporation of a solid, liquid or gas into another solid, liquid, or gas.
The Multipure filter uses adsorption to transfer contaminants onto the filter's surface and remove it from the water stream. The water itself is temporarily absorbed by the filter material (much like a sponge absorbing water), but the contaminants are adsorbed to the filter surface, creating a layer on the surface as it is removed from the water stream.
