Black Berkey and Ceramic filters for Berkey Units
Black Berkey® Purification Elements in - 9" length
Black Berkey® Purification Elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available. In fact, Berkey has 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 during the test 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.
The Big Berkey® black Berkey Purification Elements removes water filter system removes greater than 99.999% of viruses and greater than 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria, while also removing or dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals. The system is so powerful it can remove food coloring or tea tannin from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Sterasyl™ Ceramic Water Filter Elements -7" and 9" lengths
The Sterasyl™ grade ceramic is designed to remove suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%). The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic, which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1,000º C. They are designed to operate with water flow going from the outside to the inside of the element. The ceramic shell exhibits a strictly controlled pore structure, so as to provide efficient sub-micron filtration, a proven defense against hard-shelled parasites such as Cryptosporidium as well as pathogenic bacteria. The ceramic also removes other less harmful, but equally unpleasant particulate debris such as rust and dirt.
Composition of the Sterasyl™ ceramic contains pure silver. This silver is a material designed to significantly inhibit bacteriological mitosis or grow through. The result is that bacterial growth is inhibited from occurring within the Sterasyl™ ceramic element (which is not possible with the other ceramic filter elements). This silver content insures that filtered water contains levels well below those required by international standards. Because of the silver, Sterasyl™ filter elements do not require sterilization after cleaning.
The Sterasyl™ filter, when used in in-line housings, is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as meeting their Standard No 42 for materials.
Super Sterasyl™ Ceramic Water Filter Elements - 7" and 9" lengths
Additional to the Sterasyl™ grade ceramic filter the bore of the Sterasyl™ grade ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water.
Toxicological extraction is
commonly the most difficult area of the NSF testing standards to satisfy. This
shows that the filter does not re-contaminate the water. Many other ceramics
have not passed and may not be capable of passing the NSF material extraction
test. The Ceramic shell of our Super Sterasyl˙ element is an NSF Listed
Component and is manufactured to meet NSF standard 42 for materials.

Bacterial mitosis and
The Super Sterasyl™ ceramic filter is designed to trap bacteria mainly on the outer surface of the ceramic element preventing them from passing through into the drinking water.
Given favorable temperature and pressure conditions, the accumulated bacteria could proliferate and grow unless prevented by some means. To inhibit this our elements are manufactured with a small amount of silver in the ceramic shell. Silver is a recognized bactericide, so when the bacteria comes into contact with the silver impregnated ceramic, their growth is inhibited.
The silver leach rate from the ceramic is very low and always well below the national recommended limits.
The manufacturer, New Millennium Concepts, Ltd., warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 6 months from date of purchase.
