Doulton/British Berkefeld® ELIMINATE BACTERIAL MITOSIS AND "GROW-THROUGH''
Mitosis is the name for the usual method of bacterial cell division. This division is characterized by resolving the chromatin of the cell nucleus into a threadlike form that condenses into chromosomes, each of which separates longitudinally into two parts, one part or each chromosome being retained in each of the two new daughter cells. When conditions of growth (cell division) are right (proper environmental conditions temperature, pressure, etc.) and sufficient nutrients, the "threadlike forms" can penetrate the ceramic structure of other ceramic shells and create bacterial cells on the inside of the element.
Super Sterasyl grade filter elements incorporate pure silver into the porous ceramic shell to prevent "grow-through" from occurring.
Super Sterasyl Sub-Micron Ceramic Filter
At the core of the sub-micron ceramic filter is the
most basic of elements ... EARTH. This is the
The microscopic pores of a ceramic filter element makes it an extremely efficient filter for the removal of particulate matter and fine sediment from water. Minute particulate matter will quickly plug media style filters, but the ceramics have the added benefit of being cleanable and re-usable. With nominal particulate filtration rating efficiencies of >98% down to 0.2 - 0.3 microns (Spectrum Labs), >99.7% at 0.3 - 0.5 microns, 99.9% at 0.5 - 0.8 microns and 99.99% at 0.9 microns, this is one powerful filter system.
The Super Sterasyl element utilizes the latest technological
advances of ceramic filtration by

The Pres2Pure Portable Water Filtration System
Removes lead and other heavy
The Pres2Pure filtering canteen improves taste, odor, and clarity; and remove the A, B, C's of pollution, to assure your drinking water quality for H20 TO GO! The proprietary filter removes & reduces:
Aesthetic - offensive tastes,
odors, chlorine, silt, sand, and sediment.
ADSORPTION & ABSORPTION PROCESSES
Removal of contaminants with activated carbon is a surface phenomenon known as adsorption, resulting from the molecular attraction of substances to the surface of the carbon, as the bottle is pressed, and the source water is forced through the filter.
The rate of adsorption is determined by the quality and volume of carbon used. The flow rate, or time of exposure through the filter, has been calculated to yield the greatest volume removal of toxic chemicals caused by industrial and agricultural pollution.
This exclusive filter also incorporates
proprietary absorbing media that are impregnated into the micro-porous
filter for the ionic absorption of pollutants into the filter such as aluminum,
The high-tech porous-plastic
micro-filter system contains thousands of interconnected omni-directional
pores. The "Torturous Path" structure of these pores gives it a unique
Other micron claims are usually "nominal", meaning the majority of the pores are as claimed, but the balance can range as large as 20 micron (up to 10 times greater!). When analyzing the two alternatives, remember... water (and its impurities) always flows in the line of least resistance! Settle only for "absolute" filtration that the Pres 2 Pure portable water filter system provides.
It is Easy to Use and designed for every member of the family! Pres 2 Pure is ideal for commuters, students and office workers and those who travel or who lead a more active lifestyle: campers, joggers, cyclists, hikers, backpackers, and many other sports enthusiasts. It can also be used in disaster preparedness, lead programs, health related programs, incentive and gift programs.
Simply remove the filter/cap fill with the untreated water, replace the cap, tighten securely, squeeze the sides of the bottle and drink great tasting high quality water. Initial flushing of the filter is required.
THE BOTTOM LINE
One Pres 2 Pure filter cap produces over 200 gallons of drinking water or approximately 1,600 16 oz. refills, depending on source water quality. This is equivalent to 757 one liter bottles of water at an average cost of $1.00 per liter or $3.75 per gallon - - giving this high-tech portable filtration system a value of over $750.00! The system adds convenience by eliminating the need to travel to the store to purchase bottled water. It is also environmentally friendly - - eliminating the need to discard those 757 one liter plastic bottles in land fills.

MTBE FILTER More Information on MTBE Filter New Filters (PF-4) also remove, Chlorine, Floride, Lead and arsnic. Set of 4 screws into the Regular British Berkefeld 4X4 Unit. Super Sterasyl Filters work in the upper chamber, MTBE PF-4 Filters in the lower chamber available in the regular British Berkefeld and also the Big British Berkefeld.
MTBE is an acronym for Methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether. It is a gasoline additive that has been in wide use since the Clean Air Act of 1990 mandated that MTBE or other oxygenates be added to gasoline. Most oil companies choose to use MTBE and according to the State of California's paper entitled "Public Health Goal For Methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether in Drinking Water" since 1997 it has become the second most heavily produced chemical in the United States (roughly 16 gallons per capita is produced each year)! According to Water officials interviewed on 60-Minutes, one cup of MTBE (about the same amount found in each gallon of gasoline) can contaminate five million (5,000,000) gallons of water and make it undrinkable.
Contamination of groundwater with MTBE is a rapidly growing problem in 49 U.S.
states. In drinking water, even trace amounts of MTBE can cause taste and odor
problems, which may lead to nausea and dizziness. The potential long-term health
effects of MTBE are not understood at this time, however, initial studies
indicate MTBE may cause kidney and liver problems. MTBE removal from water is a
challenge because it is very soluble in water and must compete with other
organics for binding sites on the filter medium. These other contaminants (BTEX
- butane toluene ethylene xylene and TOC - total organic carbons) are adsorbed
more readily, and MTBE often slips by standard carbon filters, ending up in the
filtered water. The PFE-1 filter has been specifically designed to remove MTBE
from drinking water when used in conjunction with a British Berkefeld gravity
filter system. The media within the Super Sterasyl filters, in the upper
chamber, capture the more strongly adsorbed BTEX and TOC's. This permits the
downstream PFE-1, secured as a post filter, to more efficiently remove MTBE.
SIZE: 6" COLOR: WHITE MEDIA: 100 GRAMS OF MTBE - ADSORBING AQUABOND MEDIUM PER FILTER REPLACEMENT: *6 MONTHS OR 1,200 GALLONS (PER FILTER) MSRP: * Actual capacity is dependent on the presence of other competing contaminants in the source water. High levels of total organic carbons and volatile organic compounds may reduce the capacity and efficiency of these elements.
