And Arsenic Reduction Filters may be installed in the lower chamber of this system if desired. Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines. Labeling may vary to fulfill orders during periods of heavy demand. Berkey stainless steel chambers are assembled in the USA from US and imported parts.Purification Elements are made and assembled in the USA. How the Berkey System Operates.
Berkey water purifiers are the most practical, user friendly and economical water purification systems available. To use, water is poured into the upper chamber. Gravity draws the water through the exclusive Black Berkey purification elements. Contaminates are captured on and within the micro-porous purification elements and are separated from the water.The purified water then collects in the lower chamber where it can be drawn through the spigot. Berkey Black Element Filters are so powerful it can be used to purify non-potable or unhealthy water in situations where electricity and water pressure are not available. For normal everyday situations or for hostile filtration environments, the Berkey systems are the most flexible and adaptable water filter available. Berkey systems provide reliable, user friendly, powerful and economical water filtration.
What is the filtration rate per hour for the various Berkey. The chart above shows the gallons per hour for each system, when configured with two Black Berkey. And when expanded to accommodate the maximum number of elements. Flow rates calculated with upper chamber full to top.Flow rate decreases as water level declines and is slowed when paired with PF-2 Fluoride & Arsenic Filters. About Black Berkey Purification Elements. Black Berkey Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, we tested the Black Berkey purification elements with more than 10,000 times the concentration of pathogens per liter than is required by standard test protocol.
This concentration of pathogens is so great that the post filtered water should be expected to contain 100,000 or more pathogens per liter (99.99% reduction - the requirement for pathogenic removal). Incredibly the purification elements removed 100%. Absolutely no pathogens were cultured from the effluent or were able to be detected, even under an electron microscope, setting a new standard in water purification. Black Berkey purification elements are so powerful, they can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs.Virtually no other filtration element can duplicate this performance. The powerful Black Berkey purification elements also remove or reduce pathogenic cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors, yet they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs. PATHOGENIC BACTERIA CYSTS AND PARASITES Exceeds purification standards: E. Coli - Klebsiella - Pseudomonas Aeruginosa - Giardia - Cryptosporidium - Raoultella Terrigena. TRIHALOMETHANES Removed to below detectable limits: Bromodichloromethane - Bromoform - Chloroform - Dibromochloromethane Health effects: muscle & nervous system disorders, cancer RADIOLOGICALS Removed to below detectable limits: Radon 222 INORGANIC MATERIALS Removed to below detectable limits: Chlorine Residual Health effects: cancer, birth defects. No need for expensive disposable filters. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey. Purification elements with a ScotchBrite. Pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water. Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Removed to below detectable limits. Alachlor Atrazine Benzene Carbofuran Carbon Tetrachloride Chlorine Chlorobenzene Chloroform 2,4-D DBCP p-Dichlorobenzene o-Dichlorobenzene 1, 1-Dichloroethane 1, 2-Dichloroethane 1, 1-Dichloroethylene cis-1, 2-Dichloroethylene Trans-1,2-Dichloroethylene 1, 2-Dichloropropane cis-l, 3-Dichloropropylene Dinoseb Endrin Ethylbenzene. Ethylene Dibromide (EDB) Heptachlor Heptachlor Epoxide Hexachlorobutodiene Hexachlorocyclopentadiene Lindane, Methoxychlor MTBE Pentachlorophenol Simazine Styrene 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane Tetrachloroethylene Toluene 2,4,5-TP (Silvex) 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene 1,1,1-trichloroethane 1,1,2-trichloroethane Trichloroethylene o-Xylene m-Xylene p-Xylene. HEAVY METALS reduced by up to 95%. Liver, kidney, circulatory system disorders. ALSO REMOVES OR REDUCES: rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors. Black Berkey purification elements are re-cleanable. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey purification elements with a ScotchBrite. What's more, the unique Black Berkey purification elements are self-sterilizing. The Black Berkey purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed EPA & ANSI/NSF Std.
