Black Berkey Purification Elements: Filtration Specifications

The Black Berkey Purification Elements far surpass other water filters in filtration capability as evidenced by their extensive filtration specifications. These elements have a specialized purification process that is due to their unique structure. The element's filtration media is a combination of micro-pores, which trap harmful contaminants like bacteria, and revolutionary material with adsorption and ion exchange properties that essentially attract molecules and viruses to the media, preventing them from passing into your drinking water.
Maximum filtering capacity:
Many water filters on the market may claim to be a purifier but do not meet the performance specifications required for this classification. In order to be classified as a water purifier, a water treatment device must remove at least 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria (known as a log 6 reduction in the water treatment industry) and reduce viruses by 99.99% (log 4 reduction). Our Berkey water filter systems can be classified as a water purifier because the elements actually remove 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria (log 9 reduction) and 99.999% of viruses which greatly exceeds the standards.
The Black Berkey filters have been tested by several EPA-accredited laboratories including the Department of Toxicology and Environmental Science at Louisiana University, Spectrum Labs, and the University of Phoenix. This extensive testing confirmed that the Black Berkey Purification Elements far exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol.
The Black Berkey filters have been tested and confirmed to remove or greatly reduce the contaminants listed below.

Water purification comes in many shapes Filtration & Distillation | We have discounts to offer on both up to 40% OFF plus free gift with purchase




Purified water is characterized by the level of impurities found in the water. To obtain purified water is to eliminate the impurities/contaminants to a diminishingly low level. 
The goal of any water filtration is to provide safe, clean drinking water. Hence, based on your consumption, requirements and mainly the contaminants present in the water source, choose your filter wisely.
