The versatile Big Berkey system is ideal for small to medium families, and for use during travel, outdoor activities, or unexpected emergencies. Constructed of highly polished AISI 304 stainless steel. Storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters). Upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13 in height. Maximum Filters: 4 Black Berkey Purification Elements (in upper chamber). System includes upper and lower stainless steel chambers, 2 Black Berkey Purification Elements (expandable up to 4), 1 stainless steel lid, 1 spigot, rubber gasket to protect the base, 2 wingnuts, 2 washers, 1 priming button, and 2 blocking plugs. Height when in use: 19.25. For normal everyday use, this system easily serves: 1-4 people. Fully configured, this system can serve up to 85-170 people a day, during an emergency. Configured with two Black Berkey Purification Elements, the Big Berkey system can produce up to 3.5 gallons (13.3 liters) per hour.
This system has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25" in height with a diameter of 8.5". The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13 in height. Configured with two Black Berkey.
The system will purify up to 3 1/2 Gallons (13.3 liters) per hour. This system can be expanded to use four purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 7 Gallons (26.5 liters) per hour. Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.

HEAVY METALS - Reduced by up to 95%: Lead, Mercury, Aluminum, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper.
ALSO REMOVES OR REDUCES: rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors. No need for expensive disposable filters. When the flow rate decreases simply brush the Black Berkey.
Purification element formulation has been tested by State & EPA accredited laboratories to exceed NSF/ANSI Standard 53. Fluoride and Arsenic Reduction Elements. Reduction elements are designed for use in conjunction with Black Berkey.
Elements be replaced after 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters). System is about 3.25 gallons (12.3 liters) therefore the PF-2. Filters should be replaced after 1,000/3.25 (3,785/12.3) or 307 refills. If the system is refilled about one time per day, the PF-2. S should be replaced after 10 months, if the system is refilled about twice per day, the PF-2.
S should be replaced about every five months. Actual capacity is dependent on the presence of other competing contaminants in the source water.
High levels of fluoride, arsenic and heavy metals may reduce the capacity and efficiency of the elements. NOTES : 1 Do not boil this element. Elements reduce filtration flow rate by 15-20%. 3 Our original tests were done using gravity alone to purge the PF-2. Since then, we have added a step by using purging buttons which are much more efficient at removing any residual process dust from the PF-2.
Filter elements contains high-grade activated alumina Al. , which currently is the most efficient media available for extracting fluoride from water. Below are the results we obtained when testing the PF-2.
320ppm aluminum and filtered it through the combination of the Black Berkey. And the post conditioned PF-2. The results showed a net reduction in aluminum contamination Raw influent.
320ppm - Effluent after passing through the Black Berkey. Again, the standard tests cannot distinguish between aluminum (Al) and activated alumina Al. Nevertheless, the tests showed a net reduction by the Black Berkey.
