Multipure’s Solid Carbon Block filters utilize multiple filtration actions, combining mechanical filtration, electrokinetic adsorption, and physiochemical adsorption to provide the most effective contaminant reduction possible. When water streams into and through a Multipure carbon block filter, contaminants initially undergo electrokinetic adsorption as the water passes the outer prefilter. The prefilter develops a positive molecular charge […]Continue Reading
