Osmio Water stock a huge range of Carbon Filters for a wide variety of applications. To ensure the best performance, our carbon filters are tested and certified by leading international bodies including NSF (WRAS - Water Regulatory Advisory Scheme) and the WQA (Water Quality Association). Carbon water filters are highly effective at remove contaminants and impurities, using chemical adsorption.
There are two main types of carbon filter. They are the carbon block filter and the granular activated carbon filters (also known as GAC). In general, carbon block filters are more effective at removing larger amounts of impurities, based upon the much larger surface area of carbon.
Many carbon filters also use a secondary media, such as impregnated silver or KDF-55, to prevent bacteria growth within the filter and provide a bacteriostatic property.
