Point-of-Use Water Filtration

Custom Innovations for Optimal Water Filtration Performance

Maximize Point-of-Use Water Filtration Efficiency Through Innovative Filter Media

Walk into the kitchen and you are bound to find at least one point-of-use water filter. It could be mounted under the sink, attached to the facet, nestled in the water pitcher in the fridge, or in a sports bottle on the counter. As public awareness of water safety has risen, so too has the demand for point-of-use water filtration devices. Manufacturers of these devices have sprung at the opportunity, leading to a highly competitive market where end users now have many options to choose from. With that, it has become more critical than ever to differentiate through innovation that not only assures safety of the drinking water, but also improves speed of filtration, taste, and filter life. Using decades of material science expertise and filtration application experience, Porex has the global operations and capabilities to engineer porous filter solutions that address the complex design challenges you may be facing.

Porex’s specialty-grade carbon filters, which have been tested by internal and third-party laboratories, can be designed and sized for water dispensers, pitchers, and bottles. They are custom engineered to remove sediment, heavy metals, chlorine, and chloramine from water in a single-pass filtration process that meets NSF Class I standards. When considering your device’s porous media, partner with a single-source supplier like Porex who can work with you to develop a tailored solution that’s a perfect fit.
