Features & Information

Dual action design to target chloramine and sediment in one cartridge. 5 micron sediment removal eliminates need for pre-filtration stage.


How does the SPECTRUM PFBC cartridge compare to the SPECTRUM PCB?

Compared to the ‘Ultimate Chloramine Removal’ SPECTRUM PCB cartridge, the SPECTRUM PFBC offers a lower pressure drop and a higher dirt-holding capacity. These features make it ideal for dual-purpose applications where efficient chloramine removal and sediment filtration are essential.

What is chloramine?

Chloramine is a compound formed by combining chlorine and ammonia, globally used as a disinfectant by utility companies to kill bacteria and microorganisms. The benefit of using chloramine over chlorine to the utility company is the nonvolatile properties associated with chloramine, protecting consumers further down the supply line.

Why do I need to remove chloramine?

Due to the nonvolatile properties associated with chloramine it will not evaporate from your supply. This is particularly damaging in the following applications:


  • Aquatics: Fish are extremely sensitive to chloramine, damage caused to gills and skin makes it fatal.
  • Brewing: Chloramine and chlorine kills microbes such as yeast.
  • Renal Dialysis: Destroys erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone that signals your bone marrow to make red blood cells.
  • Stainless Steel: Chloramine causes pitting encouraging bacterial growth in crevices.
What are the benefits of using a carbon filter?
  • Improved Taste and Odour: Removes unpleasant tastes and odours from water, making it more enjoyable to drink and cook with.
  • Chlorine Removal: Highly effective at removing chlorine and its byproducts from water.
  • Chemical Filtration: Reduces or removes various chemical contaminants from water.
  • Adsorption of Contaminants: Activated carbon has a large surface area and porous structure, allowing it to effectively adsorb a wide range of impurities.
  • Versatility: Used in a variety of applications, including residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
  • Cost-Effective Solution: Carbon filters offer a cost-effective filtration solution compared to other complex filtration technologies.
