Bestech’s silver impregnated activated carbon combines the special advantages of two technologies into one product. Silver and activated carbon together make an ideal bacteriostatic water filter media bed. Silver has a long safe history In the bacteriological treatment of water dating back to the Romans. They were the first to plate their aqueducts with silver to inhibit the growth of bacteria and algae.
Through a proprietary process, silver is impregnated into granular activated carbon. Bestech’s unique method of dispersion provides for greater bacteriostatic efficiency and longevity of the media while maintaining almost all of the raw carbon’s ability to adsorb a broad spectrum of unwanted molecular species.
Because our media is most often used in residential water filers, great care was taken in the selection of activated carbon to provide highest grade possible for removal or reduction of inorganic, organic, and chorine removal capabilities possible. This was accomplished by an exhaustive side-by-side comparison testing of about every type, size and porosity of carbon available. This product can be used for the fabrication or assembly of water filters without EPA registration under the Treated Article Exemption provided a bacteriostatic claim is not made. For more information on this subject, please contact us directly. Manufactures or formulators who use this media and want to make a bacteriostatic claim are responsible for providing data to the EPA to support the registration of their products.
