Specialty Cartridges

carbon block filter

Carbon Wrap Cartridges

Carbon wrap sediment filter cartridges are economical solutions for the reduction of sediment and chlorine taste and odor in your drinking water supply. These sediment filters consist of a carbon-impregnated media in either a wrapped or pleated design with external netting for additional strength. Most models contain a melt-blown center for increased sediment reduction.

  • Economical solution for both sediment and CTO reduction
  • Fits most industry standard sumps
  • Nominal 5 micron filtration efficiency rating
  • External netting for additional strength

  • High-flow sediment and CTO reduction
  • Home drinking water filtration
  • Commercial water filtration

Radial Flow Carbon Cartridges

Reduce chlorine taste and odor from your drinking water with radial flow carbon cartridges from Paragon. SC series carbon filter cartridges are constructed with a polypropylene (PP) center core surrounded by a second PP wrap. Between these two layers is a bed of granular activated carbon (GAC) for efficient chlorine taste and odor (CTO) removal. This unique design significantly reduces the release of carbon fines associated with traditional granular activated carbon cartridges.

  • Industry-standard sizes for common BB housings
  • High flow rates with low pressure drop
  • ≥ 20,000 gallon capacity
  • Available in 4.5-inch diameter Carbon Cartridges

  • High-flow CTO reduction
  • Commercial and home drinking water filtration
  • Pre-filtration of portable water

paraguard filter

Paraguard Carbon Cartridges

The ParaGuard Series uses the latest in nanofiber technology to achieve some of the highest filtration characteristics within the industry. Using a patented filter media design, ParaGuard offers exceptionally high flow rates, efficiency, and dirt-holding capacity. In addition, this media has been shown to reduce viruses, bacteria, cysts, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), disinfection byproducts (DPBs), endotoxin, natural organic matter, and other sub‐micron particles in water.

ParaGuard is also available in a powdered activated carbon (PAC) version for chlorine reduction.

  • High flow rates and filtration efficiency
  • 20% higher dirt-holding capacity than conventional media
  • Reduces virus, bacteria, cysts, endotoxin, and other sub-micron particles
  • Single- or double-pleat design options
  • DOE or common end‐cap options

  • High-flow water filtration
  • Commercial or home water filtration
  • PAC media version available for chlorine reduction
