Details

Eartheasy.com offers the Black Berkey purification element with our Berkey purification systems. Black Berkey is a specialty purification element that fits into all Berkey products and, unlike Berkey's Super Sterasyl Ceramic element, it can reduce or remove viruses and filters up to 3,000 gallons of water before needing replacement.

Berkey systems use micro-porous filtration, a process found in nature, combined with modern technology and high-quality materials to provide an exceptional water purification system. The Big Berkey with Black Berkey purification element will remove a wide range of viruses (up to 99.9999%), bacteria (up to 99.9999%), cysts and parasites as well as contaminants including herbicides, pesticides, organic solvents, volatile organic compounds, detergents, cloudiness, silt, sediment, foul tastes and odors. The Black Berkey also removes chlorine to undetectable levels.

Water flowing through the Big Berkey has a long contact period with the purification element. Unlike other filters where water is forced through the element, water travels through Berkey filters along a tortuous path allowing water to stay in contact with purifying elements for an extended period. This allows you to purify treated water and untreated raw water from sources such as remote lake, streams, stagnant ponds and other unregulated water bodies.

Big Berkey Features:

  • Made from highly polished 304 stainless steel
  • Package includes two or four Black Berkey purification elements
  • Gravity-powered, so requires no pumping or energy sources for purification
  • Storage capacity of 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters)
  • Purifies 3.5 gallons (13.3 liters) per hour
  • System can be expanded to use 4 purification elements for purifying a maximum of 7 gallons (26.5 liters) per hour
  • 19.25” in height, diameter 8.5”
  • When not in use, the upper chamber sits within the lower chamber and stands 13”

Warranty

1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty

Sustainability

Filters in Berkey Natural Purifiers can be cleaned and reused to prolong filter life. Drinking filtered water replaces the need for buying bottled water, and this reduces the environmental impacts associated with the manufacturing and disposal of plastic bottles.
