Ceramic Filters Company Inc is an american company that has been a pioneer and major manufacturer of ceramic water filtration systems since 1989, exporting them all over the world. In all its products, it incorporates innovative ideas as well as the latest technologies, offering effective systems that reduce hazardous elements in drinking water, while improving its taste and smell. After extensive studies, the company combined activated carbon, which is used extensively in water filtration, with special minerals such as zeolite, creating patented and high quality materials of outstanding efficiency.
The use of ceramic materials as a means of water filtration dates back in 1800, when there were still no reliable sources of drinking water. Long-term research, current practices and progress in ceramic filtration systems led to more effective means of managing water contaminants and to the composition of CeraSyl®, an advanced ceramic material similar to porcelain, with tight porosity and soaked with silver, which has bacteriostatic properties that prevent mitosis and allow the filter to self-sterilize. Water filtration through CeraSyl® is absolutely reliable, with its benefits being summarized as follows:
Specially designed to provide you with high quality drinking water by filtering it through a single block, Aquametix® limits a large number of elements that contaminate water, with a negative effect on our health and home aesthetics. It comprises activated carbon and zeolite, creating a particularly compact and porous mesh that holds a wide range of harmful substances.
Activated charcoal is a natural product produced from peat, bamboo, charcoal, wood, sawdust, olive kernels, oil and coconut bark, with the latter being the most ecological and environmentally friendly. Its surface becomes extremely porous, since it is heated in a controlled environment and in a vacuum. These microscopic holes created are capable of expanding and, thus, increasing the carbon surface area from 500 to 1500 m2 / gr, which retains mutiple substances in both liquid and gaseous form.
Zeolite is a volcanic mineral with a significant amount of cliniptilolite, capable of retaining and eliminating heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminum and excess iron, while maintaining healthy ions, metals and trace elements. In fact, its effectiveness is so intense that it can clean the nuclear waste from radioactive isotopes, and, besides water treatment industry, it is widely applied in environmental protection and agriculture. Its properties were discovered in 1756 by the Swedish mineralogist Axel Kronsted, who observed the large amount of steam produced by the water absorbed by stilbite when it quickly heats up.
The combination of the two patented materials gave us the most advanced and effective water filter currently in the international market. CeraMetix® basically consists of a resilient CeraSyl® ceramic shell and an Aquametix® core that reduces harmful substances such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, chloramines, chlorine, cysts, fluorine, lead, mercury, nickel, radionuclides, trihalomethanes, volatile organic compounds and zinc.
Patented materials are available in Open Both Ends filters to match most commercial water filtration devices. In the following link, you can see the whole range of these water filters and filters provided by Primato, the official distributor in Greece.

George Margiolos was born in Thessaloniki and has graduated from the Department of Marketing of the Alexandreio Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki. He is fluent in English and (not so fluent) in German.
Ηe has been Project Manager at Avery Dennison - Fastener Division in the UK. There, his main project was to redesign the company's products into new applications so as to become more environmentally friendly. In combination with the fact that in the UK people are more familiar with water filters, he has developed a love for environmentally friendly water filters, which reduce the use of plastic bottles and improving people's quality of life.
Since 2008, he has published over 300 unique educational and informative articles on water filters and new water treatment technologies.
Occasionally, universities and doctoral students request to use George Margiolos' articles in their research because of their quality and uniqueness.
