Carbon Block Water Filters for Removing Chlorine

The carbon block filter uses adsorptive retention along with pore size to remove contaminants from your water source.  Adsorptive Retention is when the particle stays in the filter media due to interactions between the particle and the surface of the medium. Surface and Depth Filtration relate to the particle size and pore size of the filter media. A surface filter is seen as a screen that is covered with particles too large to pass through. Particles form a filter cake on the surface and the retention will be absolute since no particles may pass, known as sieving. Depth Filtration allows particles to penetrate the filter matrix and get captured throughout the depth of the medium.
