The Activated Carbon Filter Sachet provides you with pure best drinking water - close to 100% purity - no matter what the water supply.
Pack of 20 carbon filter sachets used to remove the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as Chlorine from your tap water.
The steam distiller takes between 5 and 6 hours to turn any water into 4 litres of drinking water, at its pure best.
20 x carbon sachets. Once wet, use one filter per month. Suitable for use with any distiller brand.
History & Use of Activated Carbon in Water Filtration
Activated carbon has been used to treat water for more than 2000 years. It was produced commercially in Holland at the beginning of the 20th century and used to de-colorize sugar and distilled spirits. From 1930 it was used for water treatment to remove taste and odour. As a consequence of ww1, granulated activated carbon (gac) was developed for gas masks, and subsequently used for solvent recovery and air purification.
The unique thermal activation process used in manufacturing activated carbon produces an very large surface area, E.g., 1 gram = > 1000 m².
The carbon surface is non-polar which results in an affinity for non-polar adsorbates such as volatile organic contaminates that can remain in the water after the distillation phase. Adsorption is a surface phenomenon in which adsorbates are attracted to and held onto the pore surface of the carbon by Van der Waal’s forces.
What is distilled water?
Distilled water is water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container. Impurities in the original water that do not boil below or near the boiling point of water remain in the original container. Thus, distilled water is one type of purified water.
Proven to be ideally suited to filter odours, tastes and contaminants from water, activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been processed to increase the porosity of the individual carbon granules giving a larger surface area available for adsorption.
This is an important factor in the adsorption of contaminants as it provides a much better environment for the assimilation of dissolved matter.
This is effective at removing harmful volatile organic compounds VOC’s, one example being chlorine which is often used to treat tap our water.
The Activated Carbon Filters fit for those Water Distillers. When added to the finished distilled product creates the best tasting and purest water.
