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 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
and....

Because Black Berkey® purification
elements fit most gravity flters,
existing gravity filtration systems can
be upgraded. This vastly improves
their ability to remove unwanted
contaminates.

ALSO REMOVES OR REDUCES:
Nitrates, Nitrites, Rust, Silt and Sediment.
No  need  for  expensive disposable  filters.  Black

Berkey
®  purification elements  are  re-cleanable.
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.   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. 53) protocol.
