Matrikx PB1 lead removal cartridge + Sediment filter


A sediment filter`s main purpose is to remove particulates from water. It is rated by a micron number which refers to the size of the particles that the  filter will trap. These are often required as a pre-treatment for other types of treatment such as reverse osmosis and carbon filtration. Keep in mind that sediment filters only reduce particulates. They do not remove chemicals or make the water taste or smell better.

This filter is a standard size 10" x 2.5" suits most water filter housings we also have 0.5 micron sediment filters available. 

MATRIKX® Pb1 extruded carbon filters reduce soluble lead using a powerful ion-exchange filter medium with high specificity for soluble lead. Particulate filtration is used to intercept insoluble lead-containing particles, even those less than 2μm in diameter. Standard filters* reduce lead for over 9,400 Litres when operated at a flow of 2.8 LPM.

MATRIKX® Pb1 filters offer high levels of organic chemicals reduction, and reduce trihalomethanes (THMs), volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), chlorine, and chemicals that contribute to taste and odor.

MATRIKX pb1 Filters are owned by a USA company.  Cartridges are now manufactured in India

Test Results: Standard 2.50” O.D. x 1.25” I.D. x 9.75” L MATRIKX® Pb1 extruded carbon filters removed all detectable free chlorine (<0.1 ppm) from an influent challenge containing an average of 2.0 ppm free chlorine flowing at 2.8 LPM, and maintained this level of performance for 9,400 litres.

Young children, infants, and foetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead poisoning, even from a small dose.  Growing children will absorb any lead they consume more rapidly. A child’s physical and mental development can be irreversibly stunted by over-exposure to lead.  In infants, whose diet consists of liquids made with water, such as baby formula, lead in drinking water make up 40 – 60 % of total lead exposure. For young children it is estimated that lead in drinking water contributes between 10 – 20 % of total lead exposure. 

Replace after 10,000L (or 12 months) for lead reduction.

    I found the gentleman on the phone most helpful and we received our filters in the post within a couple of days.
