Doulton Ceramic Filter Elements have been trusted by relief organizations around the globe for over 150 years. These filters were developed in the 1850’s to remove disease causing bacteria from London’s Thames River.
The Doulton UltraCarb element is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria, chemical contaminants and lead. 1 Micron Absolute Carbon Filtration with lead removal capability is beneath the ceramic outer shell. This removes chlorine, improves taste, odor and reduces trace contaminants. These filter elements have been tested in accordance with NSF protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, and chlorine reduction (Class 1).
