Description:You can choose the Aquacera Traveler XL gravity water filter with 2 CeraMetix Filters (For Fluoride Reduction) or with the CeraGrav Plus Filters, or if you are not worried about bacteria or fluoride you can choose the Chemix QuickDrip block filters for municipal chlorine treated water above under filter options.
The Aquacera Traveler XL gravity water filter is designed for use as both a daily countertop filter system or emergency and preparedness applications. The Traveler XL uses gravity to filter water in the upper chamber through the filter element(s) into the lower chamber where the filtered water is collected — manufactured from 304-grade polished stainless steel which offers a durable, lightweight, and portable means of filtering drinking water anywhere in the world.
The Traveler™XL holds 1 or 2 filter elements. Ideal for use on municipal or natural water sources. Ideal for camping, emergency relief, and everyday use. Saves money over expensive bottled water and pitcher filters that do not last. Portable, lightweight, durable and high capacity filter. Easy to use, simple to maintain. Ceramic filters can be cleaned up to 100 times. Pour untreated water in the top and get clean, filtered water from the tap. No power required.
Total capacity 3 US Gallons (1.5 upper & 1.5 lower chamber) 12 liters.
CeraMetix Candles Specs:
CeraMetix® GF filter elements utilize our class-leading ceramic microporous outer shell combined with our AquaMetix® granular core technology.
AquaMetix® is made from the highest quality NSF component certified (ANSI 61) coconut shell based activated carbon and other superior adsorbent materials including B2 (ANSI 61).
The ceramic shell and our AquaMetix® granular combines mechanical filtration and physical adsorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concerned.
The pore structure of the ceramic enables sufficient contact time for AquaMetix® to be ideally suited to improving taste and odor as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds, MTBE, lead, mercury, asbestos, arsenic, and fluoride.
The cleanable ceramic shell is designed to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria, and cysts. The CeraMetix® elements have been tested by NSF protocols for cyst, turbidity, particulates, lead, chloramines and chlorine reduction.
- Pathogenic bacteria—>99.9999% (ALcontrol Laboratories) Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, E. Coli, Fecal Coliform
- Cysts—100% (ALcontrol Laboratories) Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia Lamblia
- Sediment—100% absolute to 0.5 microns (IBR Laboratories)
- Fluoride— >85%
- VOC—Volatile Organic Compounds—>98%
- Metals—Aluminum, Iron, Mercury, Nickel & Zinc—>98%
- Pharmaceutical Compounds—Acetaminophen, Progesterone,
- Ibuprofen, Naproxen Sodium—>95%
The CeraMetix GF filter is manufactured to remove suspended solids, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, organic chemicals and improve taste and odor. The ceramic is silver impregnated to prevent bacteria growth and is self-sterilizing. The ceramic shell is manufactured to balance flow rate and consistent pore size to provide maximum filtration efficiency.
The center of the filter contains our AquaMetix granular media to reduce organic chemicals, fluoride, VOC’s, heavy metals and improve the color, taste, and odor of drinking water. This filter element is designed for gravity filter use and other low-pressure applications. These filters are designed for use in AquaCera® Gravity Filter Systems; they will also fit other makes of gravity systems.
CeraGrav Plus Specs:
AquaCera® water filter elements start with our silver impregnated ceramic micro-filter. Advances in the ceramic filtration manufacturing process result in a more effective and efficient means of treating a wide range of waterborne contaminants.
Modern manufacturing practices give our ceramic elements a more controlled and consistent pore structure; the inclusion of silver gives the filter element bacteriostatic properties which prevents mitosis (grow through) and is self-sterilizing. Our ceramic range is available with or without a carbon core, which allows greater flexibility in choosing the right filter based on your water filtration needs.
The CeraGrav has granular activated, coconut shell based carbon to the core of the ceramic, the addition of which allows for treatment of chlorine, taste, and odor. Ceramic elements for use in gravity filter systems are designated as CeraGrav™ Plus.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Please give me the exact dimensions of the traveler filter. Thank you. Also can you give me approved specs on everything that is removed from the water. Not what you claim so much as what has been proven. Thanks again.
Dimensions: Assembled - 16" High x 8.25" Wide Collapsed - 11.5" High x 8.25" Wide
Here is the test results for the CeraMetix Filters.
CeraMetix Test Results
Not much more to say than it takes a REALLY long time to filter; a few hours to filter all the way. Other than that, the water tastes great.
