Integrated Solutions To Water Contamination

CB Tech combines multiple filtration technologies to serve as the final barrier to water contamination

Today, water contamination has become more widespread and complex, and simplistic filtration methods do not provide effective treatment solutions. Because no single filtration technology can address every water contaminant concern. Carbon Block Technology (CB Tech) combines multiple filtration technologies into integrated solutions to create a highly-customizable approach to Point-of-Use (POU) water filtration.

CB Tech custom-designs effective, performance-certified filter products to meet OEM customers’ specific performance requirements for their privately branded products. CB Tech filters are designed to pass NSF International’s most stringent testing standards, including:

  • NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – Aesthetic Effects
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 53 – Health Effects
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 401 – Emerging Contaminants/Incidental Compounds
  • NSF Protocol P231 – Microbiological Water Purifiers
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 372 – Lead Content
  • NSF Protocol P477 – Microcystin
  • NSF Protocol P248 Military Operations Microbiological Water Purifiers
NSF certified water filters

Furthermore, CB Tech can incorporate materials and media supplied by customers or other manufacturers to produce hybrid filter products that are unique and exclusive to the customer. CB Tech leverages over 45 years of manufacturing experience to provide technical guidance and engineering assistance in filter design.

CB Tech is the best solution for powerful, customizable filtration products.

The Foundation – Essential Filtration Technology

Superior materials, superior formulation, superior performance

The basis for CB Tech’s superior product performance lies in its blending of high quality carbon with specialized adsorbents and binding agents.

Carbon‘s efficacy at neutralizing a broad array of contaminants offers peerless performance in treatment of the aesthetic and health-affecting contaminants found in water. CB Tech utilizes the highest quality coconut shell-based powdered activated carbon (PAC) to produce compressed blocks of carbon, granting exceptional pore density and serving as a strong foundation for additional water treatment customization.

CB Tech targets specific contaminants by utilizing additional PAC sources and by combining performance enhancement materials, such as specialized adsorbents, catalytic materials, and bacterial inhibitors.

Furthermore, CB Tech can develop compressed filter blocks utilizing specialty materials supplied by the customer, both as a stand-alone source material or as a blend with other materials. CB Tech’s proprietary compression molding manufacturing process allows custom media filter block production with a very consistent pore distribution throughout the filter block.

Building On The Foundation

Microbiological Purification

CB Tech Nanomesh offers revolutionary performance against pathogens

By adding CB Tech’s proprietary Nanomesh filtration media to a filter block foundation, the resulting custom hybrid filters extend performance with the ability to also treat water for bacteria, viruses, and cysts, without the need for external power or chemical additives.

CB Tech Nanomesh yields unique custom filters that can be certified for NSF Protocol P231 for microbiological purification. And unlike membrane technologies, Nanomesh is highly effective at relatively low operating pressures, and has the ability to process higher volumes of water without clogging.
