Contaminants Commonly Filtered with Centaur Carbon

First of all, what exactly is Centaur Carbon? Our Centaur Carbon is a coconut-based catalytic granular activated carbon far superior to standard Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) in its ability to absorb chloramine, the primary disinfectant in most municipalities.

Our Flow-Tech Pure CX Carbon Filter uses Centaur Carbon to remove several different contaminants, here is a list of some of the most common ones:

-many volatile organic chemicals (VOC)

-many pesticides and herbicides

-chlorine AND chloramine


-trihalomethane (THM) compounds



-hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water

All of our Whole House Carbon Filters contain NSF certified carbon. They are highly effective for reduction or removal of impurities including disinfectants, organics, herbicides, pesticides and industrial solvents.
