UPC filter cartridges are manufactured from a proprietary blend of 50% carbon and 50% polypropylene fiber yarn. The carbon and polypropylene media are bonded to prevent carbon transfer during handling and downstream carbon fine migration. The filters are offered in various lengths, outside diameters, micron ratings and core materials. They offer the performance and reliability of string-wound cartridges with the advantages of carbon.  
 

Short-Term Gain, Long-Term Pain

Granular activated carbon (GAC) is the great equalizer, providing superb filtration for a wide range of end-user concerns. It is a versatile, high-capacity powerhouse medium that can reduce and capture a multitude of contaminants. Its massive surface area and physical structure allow for contaminant reduction, primarily via adsorption, catalytic reduction and physical filtration.
