Effective Lead and Cyst Removal
Our FI-PB20-BB filter consists of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency. With a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, it provides increased dirt-holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, the FI-PB20-BB will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core.
The FI-PB20-BB's extruded activated carbon filters reduce soluble lead using an ion-exchange filter medium with high specificity for soluble lead. Ultra-fine 0.5 micron particulate filtration is used to intercept insoluble lead-containing particles and cysts. With its proprietary extrusion process, FI-PB20-BB offers high levels of chemical reduction in potable drinking water, including chlorine taste and odor.
FI-PB20-BB also meets NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for turbidity and cyst reduction, including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma, and will fit in our 20" standard whole house big housings.
Note: With the micron rating being so fine (0.5µm), to avoid clogging we strongly recommend installing multiple sediment pre-treatments prior to the PB Filter. Pre-filters can be arranged in the following order: sediment filter with 25µm first --> sediment filter with 1µm next --> PB filter with 0.5µm last (Find sediment filters here). This way the filtration will be more effective and the PB filter will also last longer.
