GAC Series Granular Activated Carbon Filters


GAC Series Granular Activated Carbon Filters are economical water replacement filters. Its shell is made of food grade plastic and filled with high quality granular activated carbon. High quality granular activated carbon(GAC) has a strong adsorption effect, can absorb chemical pollutants in water such as chlorine and its derivatives, different colors, odors, pesticide residues and bleaching powder, and effectively improve the taste.

The structure of the GAC carbon filters allow water to enter from one end and pass the entire length of the carbon bed of the GAC filters before leaving the other end. The internal expansion pad minimizes channels or bypasses. This design facilitates the full contact of water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption and best filtration effect.
