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 absorption 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.
- 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, organic chemicals and improve taste and odor. 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, VOCs, 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.

How many gallons in between filter changes.

Is this the latest model or is the brushed stainless without the label the latest model?
These are the latest model.
Does this Travel XL unit come with the 5" or 7" CeraMetix filters? The picture shows it with a stainless steel spout, is that what comes with this unit?
It comes with 2 7" filters and yes the stainless steel spigot comes with it
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.

What is the best filter you have for the Aquacera Traveler XL and what size to use? I believe the 7" is the correct size. I liked the unit but the water that sat below the filter level started smelling musty after a time so I stopped using it as I have candida. I would like to try it again and wondering if I dump the water below the filter level each time before I refill it if it would help with that. Do you know if it filters out molds? Thanks
The CeraMetix is the better filter. We recommend that you clean the canister out at least once a month maybe sooner if you live in a very humid area. Yes, the filter will filter mold. The ceramic is silver impregnated to prevent bacteria growth and is self-sterilizing. Here is a link to them.

This is a beautiful piece of equipment, fit so tight it will develop a vacuume when you fill your water container. the problem is the filters, filter one had an issue with the seam between the ceramic and the plastic, there was even a visible bead of glue between the two, water poured through this one, after a week I removed it and plugged the hole. the second filter still left a chlorine taste to the water. I keep waiting for it to get better. I'm not optimistic
Liked how easy it was to wash and assemble and looks very nice. I had an issue with it filtering the chlorine out which is much better now after about two weeks but it seems I can still detect maybe a hint. The city water it is filtering smells very strong with chlorine to begin with. As far as the filtering time I don't think it is bad, I have no problem with that. I would love to see how it tests as I have candida and I do not want to be drinking chlorine water. We are using the water from it for drinking, coffee and cooking. I got the Traveler and maybe could have gone up to the next size for two of us as I drink a lot of water, but if I see that it is getting low I just filter some more.
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.
Actually that is pretty much the standard for gravity filters. You would not want it to flow through real fast as your water would not get filtered as good.
