The Sterasyl ceramic is the ceramic shell used for the Super Sterasyl filter element. That means this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of the Sterasyl ceramic. Additionally, the bore of the ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water.
The Sterasyl replacement ceramic comes in three sizes: 7” Super Sterasyl, 9” Super Sterasyl and 9” Imperial Super Sterasyl. The re-cleanable Super Sterasyl filter elements remove suspended solids, parasites, cysts and bacteria and reduces organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and foul tastes and odors. The top of the Super Sterasyl element is closed with a unique ceramic dome. This prevents the possibility of breeching (leakage), which can occur with filtration elements that are closed with a plastic cap.
