Activated carbon water filters are the most popular in refrigerator water filtration and other home settings, but how does it actually work? Here at Discount Filters, we know that our ClearChoice refrigerator filters are the best activated carbon product out there at the best price, but you might be interested in how and why that’s the case–let’s take a look.
Activated Carbon: How It Works
Activated carbon are tiny, incredibly porous particles that have a large surface area in relation to their size. For example, one gram of activated carbon, contains a surface area of more than 500 square meters. This size to surface area ratio is how a very small amount of carbon is able to filter a very large amount of water.
These carbon particles are often derived from an organic source like coconut shells and are the essential element to the process of adsorption. During adsorption, the water filters through the carbon particles and the impurities in the water are picked up by the carbon while the water passes through cleaner and clearer.
ClearChoice Filters for Your Refrigerator
Our inhouse, premium after-market ClearChoice refrigerator water filters use activated carbon to adsorb the unwanted impurities that are present in unfiltered water. The result after the filtration process is cleaner, clearer, better tasting water and ice.
Using activated block carbon technology, contaminants are adsorbed by the carbon, resulting in cleaner water. Carbon is one of the most adsorptive substances, and it retains microscopic contaminants found in the water being filtered, while allowing the cleaner water to pass through. Our ClearChoice activated carbon water filters will remove those potentially harmful contaminants from your drinking water. Better water, and better price? Yes, please.
Over time, the carbon does become less effective at capturing pollutants, so replacing your filter becomes necessary. We carry our aftermarket filters in a 1 pack, 2 pack or 3 pack for additional cost savings.
