The SCBC-10 Silver-Impregnated Carbon Block Filter is the same as the CBC-10 but is silver-impregnated making it bacteriostatic so it remains hygienic for longer. Silver Impregnated Activated Carbon combines the special advantages of two technologies into one product. Silver and activated carbon together make an ideal bacteriostatic water filter media bed. Silver inhibits the growth of bacteria within the filter media bed. The cartridge fits standard 10 inch housings for counter top and under counter water purifiers. The unique structure enables it to reduce Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba, and Toxoplasma cysts and fine sediment particles down to 0.5 microns. Removes Chlorine Taste and Odor, Pesticides, Organics, THM's(Trihalomethanes) & HAA5's(Haloacetic Acids). The SCBC10 activated carbon filter works by adsorption and physical screening of contaminants. The carbon adsorbs contaminants by collecting organic molecules and other substances on its porous surface. Carbon block filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency.
* Chlorine Taste and Odor
* Removes over 99% of Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba, Toxoplasma
