Pure Coconut Carbon Block Filters are made from a combination of high-performance coconut shell carbon, unique binders and industry leading manufacturing processes to deliver trade quality carbon block filters. They deliver exceptionally low pressure drop while maintaining a high dirt holding capacity with excellent contaminant reduction capabilities.

Pure Carbon Blocks are registered in compliance with NSF/ANSI 42, 53 and 61 for several things, including VOC’s, THM’s, Lead & Heavy Metal Reduction, Chloramine Reduction & Chlorine Taste & Odour reduction. This also includes meeting standards of purity & safety of the materials used.

Surface Modification Carbon is a new advancement in carbon block technology. This technology focuses on the absorption factor of coconut carbon to provide the highest rate of removal in a fraction of the contact time usually required by standard GAC filters.

The prestigious SMC 4520-P5 Pure Catalytic Coconut Carbon cartridge boasts the highest absorbance capacity on the market for a cartridge its size. Measured in Chlorine Removal Capacity it handles a whopping 565,000 L of water @ 3ppm Chlorine before falling below the benchmark 85% reduction limit. This filter is jam packed full of the special carbon with the highest density and weight in the Pure Range.

*This is important to note as tannin removal in water is one of the more difficult things to achieve as there are copious amounts of different tannins, all of which react differently to carbon and require different types and blends (such as coal carbon) to effectively remove. The golden rule when it comes to tannin is contact time.

Pure SMC Filters are available in 20” x 4.5 at a 0.5uM Rating.
