Big Berkey Water Filter Purifier with Black Berkey Elements
Versatility combined with powerful filtration (even capable of removing red food dye from water!) are the hallmarks of the Big Berkey Water Filter Purifier, a gravity feed filtration system that needs neither electricity nor water pressure to operate.
The famous Berkey line began with British Victorian-era military water filters for remote garrisons, and today, the filter is still well suited to emergency situations and anywhere that severely contaminated water needs to be cleaned efficiently without water pressure from a faucet to drive it through a faucet.
The two-chamber filter is constructed of tough, food-grade 304 stainless steel, which resists corrosion and damage, is easy to clean, and is taste neutral. Additional details of the Big Berkey include:
The effectiveness of Black Berkey elements
The filtration elements used in the Big Berkey water filter are so powerful in their cleansing effect that they remove 100% of most contaminants even when tested by having extremely concentrated contaminants filtered through them as a test.
This is achieved in several different ways. The pores in the Black Berkey elements are so tiny that bacteria cannot fit through them. A variety of very effective, proprietary, high-tech media are used in the filters, all of which are designed to provide maximum absorption and filtration.
However, one of the most useful factors is the gravity feed itself – moving at a leisurely pace, the water is in contact with the filter elements far longer than when it is shot through by water pressure from a faucet. Together, these factors enable the following levels of filtration:
Big Berkey flexibility
The Big Berkey is a filter that can be used anywhere that there is a flat surface to set it up on and where there is water in need of filtering. It can be used on the kitchen counter or deep in the tropical bush with equal ease.
Practically any fresh (non-salt) water can be filtered with it, including lakes and rivers, stagnant pools, and muddy or turbid waters. Since it can perform at maximum effectiveness without water pressure or electricity, the Big Berkey can be used in basically any situation around the globe, from a high-class London apartment to the steppes of Kazakhstan.
This system has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13" in height.
Configured with two Black Berkey® purification elements the system will purify up to 3 1/2 Gallons (13.3 liters) per hour*. This system can be expanded to use four purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 7 Gallons (26.5 liters) per hour*
