Black Berkey Purification Elements are the leader in gravity-fed water purification, backed by independent testing. The Black Berkey Purification Element formulation has been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53. When drinking water that’s been filtered using a Berkey Black filter, you can rest assured that your water is clean and safe for consumption. In fact, Black Berkey purifier elements are far more powerful compared to competitors’ water filters. The Black Berkey Purification Filter set a new standard in filtration allowing all systems containing the Black Berkey filter elements to be classified as purifiers, by removing viruses as well as bacteria contaminants! The revolutionary Berkey purifier elements are so powerful that they can remove food coloring from water without removing any of the beneficial minerals your body needs. The Black Berkey Purification Elements remove or reduce the following contaminant Viruses MS2 – Fr Coliphage Exceeds Purification Standards – 99.999% Trihalomethanes Bromodichloromethane, Bromofore, Chloroform, Dibromochloromethane Removed to below detectable limits – 99.99999% Pathogenic Bacteria Parasites and Cysts E. Coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, Aeriginousis, Giardia, Cryptosporidium Removed to nondetectable levels – 100% Inorganic Minerals: Chlorine Removed to nondetectable levels – greater than 99.9999999% Heavy Metals Lead, Mercury, Aluminum, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper Greater than 95% reduction Fertilizers and Related Byproducts Nitrates and Nitrites Greater than 85% reduction at 19mg. per liter. Installs in the upper chamber of any Berkey system. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems; the included 2 elements in a Berkey system will purify approximately 6,000 gallons of water before replacement is recommended
WHY BERKEY FILTERS? Berkey Purifiers provide the cleanest tasting water and their lifespan long outlasts competing filters. Among Gravity Filters, no filter is more powerful, earning Berkey Water filter Systems the world leader in portable water purification.
FITS ALL BERKEY SYSTEMS: Go Berkey, Travel Berkey, Big Berkey, Berkey Light, Royal Berkey, Imperial Berkey, and Crown Berkey. Installs in the upper chamber of any Berkey system. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems
LIFESPAN: Each black element has a life of 3,000 gallons, or 6,000 gallons for the pair. LESS THAN 2 CENTS PER GALLON OF WATER, much cheaper (and cleaner) than bottled water. Elements come with a 2-year, pro-rated warranty. Each filter re-cleanable and self-sterilizing during the life of the element. No soap or chemicals needed to clean!
FILTER ABILITY: Berkey Black Filter Elements have been tested at state- and EPA-accredited laboratories, and far exceed EPA and ANSI/NSF (Std. 53) protocol. In pact they far surpass Filtration and the purification standards, and actually remove 99.999% of Viruses and 99.9999999% of pathogenic bacteria, known as a log 9 reduction. This distinction is what makes Berkey systems the only certifiable gravity flow water Purification System
INCLUDES One pair (2 Filter Elements) of Black Berkey water Filter Purification Elements. Each filter is 9-inches tall and fits in all Berkey Water Filter systems and most competitor counter top water filter systems. Each pair includes all necessary installation hardware (washers, wing nuts, priming button, and instructions). Not only can Berkey Purifiers can easily replace ceramic water filters, Berkey Water Filters far surpass ceramic filters in both contaminants removed and filter life span
