What do Black Berkey Elements remove?

>>>>> Performance Data <<<<<


*The Black Berkey® water filtration elements are made and assembled in the USA.

Black Berkey® water filtration elements are more powerful than any other gravity filter element currently available.  The Elements have a unique purification capability that is due to their unique structure. The micro- pores within the Black Berkey® Elements are so small that pathogenic bacteria are simply not able to pass through them.

  • Removes chlorine, monochloramines, heavy metals,  pharmaceuticals, pathogenic bacteria,  nuclear radiation such as cesium 137 plus more! Examples of heavy metals include mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb)
    • Includes: Two 9" Black Berkey® Elements with 2 washers, 2 wing nuts, and 1 priming button, 1 priming squeeze bottle, (1 per order)
    • Installs in the upper chamber of all Berkey and British Berkefeld systems. Elements can also be used to upgrade most other gravity-fed water filter systems
    • Sold as a SINGLE or as a PAIR
    • Performance; Black Berkey Elements remove chlorine, monochloramines, heavy metals,  pharmaceuticals, pathogenic bacteria,  nuclear radiation such as cesium 137 plus more! - Examples of heavy metals include mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb) >Data Sheet here<
    • Durability; Depending on water quality, This website recommends replacing Black Berkey Elements at 2 years or after 3,000 gallons (12,000 Litres) after use - through a pair of elements.
    • Re-cleanable and self-sterilizing during the life of the element
    • The Black Berkey elements are interchangeable with the British Berkefeld systems and other other brand name gravity systems. (the PF-2 filters can be used as well.)
    • The Black Berkey® Element formulation have been tested by State and EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53.

    Berkey® systems equipped with Black Berkey® Elements can remove up to 99.9999% of pathogenic bacteria, while also removing or dramatically reducing protozoa, trihalomethanes, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, VOCs, petroleum products, perfluorinated chemicals, rust, silt, sediment and even radiologicals.

    Performance of Berkey water filtration elements decrease with age. Replace every 2 years.

    Note:  TDS level water tests on our elements do not indicate a negative performance. Beneficial minerals are bypassed through the elements which will register a TDS reading. Only reverse osmosis will give you low TDS readings.

    Black Berkey Elements Removal of Cryptosporidium and Giardia

    Drink with confidence—independent lab tests show that our elements are extremely effective at removing these parasitic contaminants. In fact, no cysts were detected in the tested system’s effluent for both contaminants. This is important when considering the fact that consumption of just 10 giardia cysts may cause infection.

    Cryptosporidium; The United States Environmental Protection Agency’s minimum removal or inactivation standard for cryptosporidium is 99%, or a 2-log reduction. Black Berkey®  Elements exceed lab detectable limits, removing cryptosporidium to greater than 99.997% (log 4.6). That is over twice the EPA standard, by log 2.6.

    Giardia; The EPA’s minimum removal or inactivation standard for giardia lamblia is 99.9%, a 3-log reduction. Black Berkey® Elements exceed lab detectable limits, having been tested to reduce giardia cysts by greater than 99.994%, or log 4.6. This also exceeds the EPA standard.
