Carbon Blocks, are one of the most effective and widely used technologies in the Point Of Use (POU) drinking water treatment industry. Solid carbon blocks, or simply carbon blocks, are employed either as standalone treatment methods or in conjunction with other filtration technologies. While seemingly simple at first glance, there are many factors to evaluate when designing and manufacturing an efficient carbon block water filter.
The Manufacturing Processes:Compressed Carbon Block VS. Extruded Carbon Block
Carbon block is manufactured using one of two processes: extrusion or compression molding.
Extruded carbon blocks are manufactured using a mixture of carbon, binder and other media that is forced through a die to form a continuous block. The block is then trimmed to size.
Compressed carbon blocks are manufactured individually in a mold under great pressure and high heat and then trimmed to size.Compression molding utilizes a more labor intensive manufacturing process with a lower production rate.
However,compression molding also provides a final product with more consistent filtration properties, due somewhat to needing less binder material to manufacture a cohesive carbon block.
Beyond simply requiring less binder, another advantage of compression molding over extrusion is the broader array of binding materials from which to choose.
Due to the greater temperatures and pressures employed in the compression molding process, specially formulated binders that are more porous may be used to prevent the binder from masking the carbon’s inherent porosity. This yields a more efficient use of the material, resulting in superior performance and increased capacity when comparing same sized blocks.
One final difference between the two manufacturing processes is that compression molding of carbon blocks provides more variability in filter shape, which adds greater flexibility to product design. Carbon block filters go beyond the aesthetic improvement of water by reducing particulates, microscopic cysts, lead, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), and other contaminants.

Water pollution occurs when unwanted materials enter into water, changes the quality of water and and harmful to environment and human health.
Water is an important natural resource used for drinking and other developmental purposes in our lives.Safe drinking water is necessary for human health all over the world.
According to world health organization (WHO) 80% diseases are water borne. Drinking water in various countries does not meet WHO standards, 3.1% deaths occur due to the unhygienic and poor quality of water.
Usually, there are 3 types of contaminants in our daily drinking water.
1.Physical contaminants: refers to the sediment, rust and impurities such as suspended solids visible in the water.
2.Chemical contaminants: refers to various artificial or naturally occurring chemicals that are dissolved in water, organics,in-organics and heavy metals.
3.Biological contaminants: refers to a biologically active substances that can cause disease to human body in water,the bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Sourcing the clean and safe drinking water becomes more and more important for each of family. Here are some water filtration media that can help to improve the drinking water quality.

An ion-exchange resin or ion-exchange polymer is a resin or polymer that acts as a medium for ion exchange. It is an insoluble matrix (or support structure) normally in the form of small (0.25–0.5 mm radius) microbeads, usually white or yellowish, fabricated from an organic polymer substrate. The beads are typically porous, providing a large surface area on and inside them. The trapping of ions occurs along with the accompanying release of other ions, and thus the process is called ion exchange.Ion-exchange resins are widely used in different separation, purification, and decontamination processes. The most common examples are water softening and water purification.
Types of Resins
The cation exchange method removes the hardness of water but induces acidity in it, which is further removed in the next stage of treatment of water by passing this acidic water through an anion exchange process.
In water softening, ion-exchange resins are used to replace the magnesium and calcium ions found in hard water with sodium ions. When the resin is fresh, it contains sodium ions at its active sites. When in contact with a solution containing magnesium and calcium ions (but a low concentration of sodium ions), the magnesium and calcium ions preferentially migrate out of solution to the active sites on the resin, being replaced in solution by sodium ions.
The resin can be recharged by washing it with a solution containing a high concentration of sodium ions (e.g. it has large amounts of common salt (NaCl) dissolved in it). The calcium and magnesium ions migrate from the resin, being replaced by sodium ions from the solution until a new equilibrium is reached. The salt is used to recharge an ion-exchange resin, which itself is used to soften the water.

And the high density net help to filter the sediments and rust, the inside coconut shell activated carbon can remove the Chlorine, Odor and unpleasant taste to improve the water quality and taste.
Nowadays, it’s no wonder that more people are turning to water filters to protect their health. Here are something about the faucet mount water filters that we’d like to share with you today.
What are the advantages of faucet filters?
Convenience– With a faucet mount filter, you’ve got on demand filtration right at your kitchen faucet. There’s no need to constantly refill containers, and you won’t run out of filtered water.
Low Price– These are among the least expensive water filters. Most models retail for under $50. The replacement filters are inexpensive, too.
Simple Installation– No tools are required to install a faucet filter. Just take off the faucet aerator and screw the filter on in its place.
Easy Maintenance– The only maintenance you’ll have to do is to replace the filter cartridge every few months. And this is a simple task.
How do faucet water filters work?
A faucet mount filter screws onto the end of your faucet in place of the aerator. It has a metal or plastic housing that holds a filter cartridge.
You just turn on the water, and it flows through the filter and out an opening in the filter.
There’s always some type of diverter so you can switch between filtered and unfiltered water. You wouldn’t want to waste filtered water on, say, washing dishes.
Different brands may use different filtration materials and methods, but most have a couple of things in common.
The basic setup has a layer to block dirt and debris and then an activated carbon block that traps contaminants by adsorption as the water flows through.Some models have additional layers to reduce a greater number of contaminants.
While for Pursafet faucet mount water filter, we use the UNIKTIKA’s activated carbon fiber, which is developed by melting-spinning technology, provides an extremely high adsorption speed compared with powdered or granular activated carbon.
With the Mitsubishi Rayon Ultra-filtration Membrane, it can effectively removes most particles, pyrogens, micro-organisms and colloids above their rated size, providing reliable bacteria and protozoan cyst reduction for safer and cleaner drinking water without incorporating chemicals into the media or adding chemicals to the filtered water.
Sprayer head design, directly attaches to standard faucets, easily switches back and forth from tap water to filtered drinking water.Save 40% more space-efficient than most units, best for using in kitchen, bathroom and taking to travel.
A delicious cup of coffee makes a great way to start your day. An amazing cup of coffee can be a celebration to the senses, especially if brewed using high quality, roasted, single origin coffee beans. Ask any coffee enthusiast if the type of water in their coffee causes them concern, and the majority of them will agree – Yes, of course it matters to them.
Coffee is mostly made up around 98% of water, obviously the water you use to brew your coffee is going to have a serious impact on the final coffee taste.
Using filtered water is particularly important for coffee making, as the hard water quickly calcifies inside the machine.
Coffee machines with water filters integrated into the system will eliminate sodium, organic solids and bacteria from your water, reducing the elements that negatively affect aroma and taste, with the advantage of preventing quite so much build-up of scale on your brewing equipment, improves the overall drinking quality of the water.
Pursafet auto coffee machine water filters use with the coconut shell activated carbon and non-sodium ion exchange resin as filtering media, help to reduce most of the chlorine, taste, odor and heavy metals in the water, while offering the improved great tasting water and coffee.

Water purification is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, and gases from water. The goal is to produce water fit for specific purposes.Water purification may reduce the concentration of particulate matter including suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses, and fungi as well as reduce the concentration of a range of dissolved and particulate matter.
The standards for drinking water quality are typically set by governments or by international standards. These standards usually include minimum and maximum concentrations of contaminants, depending on the intended use of the water.
Pursafet water filter cartridges are designed to meet the requirement of NSF and FDA-compliant standard.Our carbon block filters are an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial and industrial application.
