Omnipure introduced its own carbon block filtration media in the spring of 1999. With the market demanding better, more refined filtration options, Omnipure felt the need to supply their customers the best media option available. The only way to do this was to start from the ground up and create a new, innovative carbon block.
Omnipure’s engineering team created a new, state-of-the-art compression molding process. This advanced method produces a strong, one-piece block with an extended life. It is unsurpassed at removing chlorine, sediment, taste, odor and organic contaminants. Due to its highly uniform molded structure, the Omnipure carbon block benefits include the elimination of carbon fines release, as well as channeling and bypass.
OmnipureBlock™ consists of finely powdered activated carbon particles that have been bonded together to form a totally uniform, solid profile with superior adsorptive capacity and kinetic efficiency. Omnipure filters and cartridge elements are designed to flow in a radial, outside to inside direction resulting in low pressure drop, high flow rate and increased dirt holding capacity.
Manufactured entirely from FDA approved materials, the OmnipureBlock™ is suitable for residential point-of-use water filtration, as well as, commercial and food service applications.The OmnipureBlock is manufactured from high purity activated carbon and is designed to fit most standard household and commercial housings.
Omnipure offers carbon block technology on all E-Series, K-Series, Q-Series and CL-Series filters. Capacity rates vary with size and have a top-end exceeding 10,000 gallons. Blocks are available for filtration to 1 micron. Because of the unique manufacturing process, Omnipure is able to offer block technology utilized in conjunction with other media that can address water problems that carbon blocks alone cannot address, such a scaling. Contact your Omnipure representative for more details.
Omnipure offers carbon blocks for most standard 4-7/8”, 9-3/4”, and 20” housings. The Omnipure filter elements are available in 10 micron, 5 micron, 1 micron, and 1 micron lead reduction formulations. Elements are finished with a single layer of spun-bonded polypropylene and protective polypropylene netting. Polypropylene end caps with compression gaskets are standard. Custom formulations and alternative finishing options are available upon request. Cartridge blocks can be supplemented with other media to address unique water problems such as scaling, lead, silt and sand. Contact your Omnipure representative for more details.
