GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) is simply carbon in the form of granules. Granular Activated Carbon cartridges generally have very high capacities for the reduction or removal of aesthetic contaminants such as poor tastes, odors or colors. For these reasons, GAC filters are referred to as “taste and odor” filters.
Our Carbon filters employ a high grade carbon with industry-leading surface area allowing for the greatest efficiency of the carbon absorption.
These cartridges function poorly for the reduction of contaminants of health concern but Granular Activated Carbon filter cartridges serve well as pre-filters to carbon block filters or other technologies. They are best suited for high flow rate requirements, such as Point Of Entry (POE) applications.
Filter cartridge manufacturers rate cartridges in "microns". Microns are a size measurement of the pore size, so the smaller the number, the tighter the filter. One-micron filters are for drinking water only. In general, they are too tight to filter large amounts of water without slowing the flow to unacceptable levels.
Filter cartridge manufacturers also use the words "absolute" and "nominal" to describe their products' micron ratings. Absolute means absolute. Nominal means "more or less."
Drinking Water Filter Cartridges
GAC Series Cartridges are available in a variety of sizes and flow rates, and effectively provide good general-purpose drinking water filtration. If you require filtration for a single stage drinking water filter, you should use a Carbon Block cartridge.
