Berkey® - Micro -Plastics: Elimination ensured by Black Berkey® water filters

It is crucial to make a distinction between soluble plastics in water and presenting health risks, and plastics present in the form of tiny solid particles.

In the first group, there are plastics such as bisphenol A (BPA) and the 1,1-Dichloroethane (11-DCA), which can dissolve in water and pose a danger to health. The good news is that Black Berkey ™ filters are able to eliminate these two types of plastics, thus ensuring optimal purification.

In addition, thanks to their effective filtration capacity on a beach ranging from 24 to 26 nanometers, these filters are also able to eliminate the micro-platics present in the form of tiny solid particles. Indeed, these particles measure approximately 2.5 microns (2500 nanometers), which is much higher than the filtration capacity of 24 nanometers of the Black Berkey ™ filter. Once again, these filters prove to be reliable allies for quality purified water.
