Custom & Standard Carbon Blocks

carbon block
Paragon Water Systems offers both Standard and Custom Carbon Blocks using only the finest activated coconut-based carbon for purer water filtration. Unlike bituminous-based coal solutions, they do not contain high levels of contaminates and dust fines which can leach into water.

In addition, coconut based carbon contains a lower inorganic ash content and more microspores for increased surface area and porosity. This significantly increases its capacity to absorb small molecules such as VOC’s. Activated coconut-based carbon is a green product for today’s environmentally conscious companies.

Paragon Water Systems has the ability to customize carbon blocks to meet your needs and the ever changing needs of your clients. We manufacture the highest quality, NSF certified blocks made in the USA.
