Upper chamber nests within lower chamber for transport and stands only 12 in height. Maximum fliters: 2 Black Berkey Elements (in upper chamber). System includes upper and lower stainless steel chambers, 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements, 2 wingnuts, 2 washers, 1 priming button, stainless steel lid, spigot, and a rubber gasket to protect the base. Height when in use: 18.Weight: 6.13 lbs empty. For normal everyday use, this system easily serves: 1-3 people. Fully configured, this system can serve up to 33-66 people a day, during an emergency. Maximum Filtration Flow Rate: Configured with two Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Travel Berkey system can produce up to 2.75 gallons (10.4 liters) of purified water per hour. Up to two PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Filters may be installed in the lower chamber of this system if desired.

HEAVY METALS - Reduced by up to 95%: Lead, Mercury, Aluminum, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper.
ALSO REMOVES OR REDUCES: rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors. No need for expensive disposable filters. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey. Purification elements with a ScotchBrite. Pad under running water, reinstall and your system is again ready to purify water.
Each durable and efficient purification element will last for up to 3,000 gallons (6,000 gallons per set of two) and provide years of efficient water purification. Purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53. Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements. Reduction elements are designed for use in conjunction with Black Berkey.Water purification elements to adsorb the following unwanted elements found in drinking water. Fluoride Arsenic V and pre-oxidized Arsenic III Other residual heavy metal ions TECHNICAL INFORMATION: FLUORIDE : Testing for fluoride was based on 20-30ppm of the ion in the influent aqueous solution at a flow rate of no more than 3 gpm (11 lpm) per cubic foot of media. Under optimum conditions, effluent concentrations of less than 50 ppb were readily achieved (>99.75% reduction). ARSENIC : This product uniquely targets the entire family of arsenic oxide anions as well as the arsenic cations. REPLACEMENT : Under normal conditions it is recommended that each set of two PF-2. Elements be replaced after 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters). System is about 3.25 gallons (12.3 liters) therefore the PF-2.
Filters should be replaced after 1,000/3.25 (3,785/12.3) or 307 refills. If the system is refilled about one time per day, the PF-2. S should be replaced after 10 months, if the system is refilled about twice per day, the PF-2. S should be replaced about every five months. Actual capacity is dependent on the presence of other competing contaminants in the source water.
High levels of fluoride, arsenic and heavy metals may reduce the capacity and efficiency of the elements. NOTES : 1 Do not boil this element. Elements reduce filtration flow rate by 15-20%. 3 Our original tests were done using gravity alone to purge the PF-2. Since then, we have added a step by using purging buttons which are much more efficient at removing any residual process dust from the PF-2.
The test does not distinguish between activated alumina Al. So we had to use the total count of aluminum and activated alumina in our tests. 4 The media used in the PF-2.
Filter elements contains high-grade activated alumina Al. , which currently is the most efficient media available for extracting fluoride from water. Below are the results we obtained when testing the PF-2. Elements the water was not pre-filtered through the Black Berkey. The reduction over time is due to additional residual process dust being washed free from the PF-2.
Elements as the system is used. To give a scale for comparison purposes we include test results from a national brand toothpaste and water boiled in an aluminum pan. National brand toothpaste 52.878 ppm aluminum Water boiled in an aluminum pan for five minutes: 2.791 ppm aluminum PF2. 029 ppm aluminum While the above results indicate that the residual process dust adds a minute amount of activated alumina to the water, the Black Berkey.Purification elements reduce aluminum from the water. We tested water that naturally contained. 320ppm aluminum and filtered it through the combination of the Black Berkey. And the post conditioned PF-2. The results showed a net reduction in aluminum contamination Raw influent.
320ppm - Effluent after passing through the Black Berkey. Again, the standard tests cannot distinguish between aluminum (Al) and activated alumina Al. Nevertheless, the tests showed a net reduction by the Black Berkey.
Element in the combination of naturally occurring aluminum plus any residual activated alumina Al. Process dust from the PF-2.
