Silver Impregnated Carbon

Silver Impregnated Carbon


Type 1184 is a silver-impregnated coconut shell activated carbon specifically designed for bacteriostatic properties and trace removal. It is manufactured from coconut shells by high-temperature steam activation under rigidly controlled conditions. The silver impregnation of type 1184 carbon imparts bacteriostatic properties that inhibit bacterial growth on the carbon filter media. Silver exhibits a self-sterilising property called the oligodynamic effect that, although not fully understood, is recognised as an effective method for controlling microbial growth. The coconut base carbon substrate is specifically designed to be effective for adsorbing trace organic compounds such as trihalomethanes (THMs) and pesticides, as well as disinfection by-products and taste and odour compounds.


Type 1184 can be used in a variety of applications and is recommended when microorganism growth presents a problem. Used commonly in point-of-entry (POE) and point- of-use (POU) applications, the antimicrobial properties of silver impregnated on the carbon make type 1184 especially valuable in most water purification applications where bacterial growth on filter media can become an issue.

Some typical applications for type 1184 silverized carbon include:

  • Pitcheranddispenserhomewaterfilters(POU).
  • Whole-homewaterfiltration(POE).
    · Pharmaceuticalstreampurification.

The best thing we ever did was install our Aqua4life shower filter! The hard water in Chinchilla was drying out my skin and making my hair really dry and unmanageable! After the very first shower with the filter, my hair felt normal again!! HOORAY! So damn happy! We also bought one for the bench top in the kitchen and we no longer have to buy drink

I cannot recommend Aqua 4 Life highly enough. I had the sink top version installed today and couldn't be happier. It's a great product and the service provided by Dave is exceptional. Great product, great service, thanks Dave.

I had an issue with my bench top unit. Sent Dave a message this morning he dropped my place this afternoon and fixed it up. Issue resolved everything is now good. Great friendly service. Thanks Dave.

Huge thanks to Dave for installing our filter the other day, we are just loving the water quality now and I feel like a different person! Very appreciate of the easy solutions for renters, and payment instalments free of extra charges. Makes it an accessible purchase for us! Will definately recommend.
