British Berkefeld® Filter Elements reduce up to 99.99% of particulates, cysts, parasites and pathogenic bacteria including  E. Coli, Cryptosporidium, Giardia and Salmonella Typhi.

Additionally, these filters will reduce chlorine, rust, sediment and organic chemicals. With filtration rating efficiencies of >98% down to 0.2 microns  >99.9% at 0.5 microns >99.99% at 0.9 microns (Spectrum Labs).

British Berkefeld® Filter Elements are powerful and economical.

What's more, the durable ceramic filters can be cleaned over and over, as needed, with a soft brush or ScotchBrite® pad.

British Berkefeld® Water Filters Elements
Ceramic Water Filter Element

The Sterasyl™ grade ceramic is designed to remove suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria.

The Sterasyl™ ceramic is the ceramic used for the Super Sterasyl™ filter element. Accordingly, this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of Sterasyl™.
The Ceramic shell of our Super Sterasyl˙ element is an NSF Listed Component and is manufactured to meet NSF standard 42 for materials.

Super Sterasyl Candle Water Filter Element
This cleanable filter element is designed to reduce suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria, organic chemicals, and improve taste and odor. The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1000C. They are designed to operate with water flow going from the outside to inside of the element. The ceramic shell exhibits a strictly controlled pore structure, so as to provide efficient sub-micron filtration, a proven defense against hard shelled parasites such as Cryptosporidium, as well as removing other less harmful, but equally unpleasant particulate debris, such as rust and dirt. The bore of the filter candle contains granular activated carbon that aids in the reduction of chlorine, reduces organic chemicals and improves the color, taste, and odor of the source water. The Sterasyl™ element has a unique domed ceiling assuring that leakage cannot occur as may happen with capped filters.
