SANFORD, FL, April 28, 2008 -- Argonide Corporation, a Sanford, Florida company that manufactures ultra-high efficiency water purification filters, has recently announced the certification to Std 53 of its NanoCeram-PAC electropositive water filter cartridges. The Water Quality Association (WQA) has now completed their detailed laboratory testing and has certified this line of five (5) filter sizes to NSF/ANSI Standard 53 for Material Safety. In addition, the WQA (Water Quality Association) has determined through additional laboratory testing to this same Standard, that the entire line of NanoCeram-PAC filter cartridges meet or exceed the stated 99.95% Reduction of Cysts.

According to company president Fred Tepper, "NanoCeram-PAC may be the highest-flowing and lowest pressure drop carbon filter on the market today, which can also claim Cyst reduction."

The NanoCeram-PAC line is an extension of Argonide's original electropositive water filter cartridges, with the addition of highly active powder activated carbon (PAC). Future testing for certification purposes includes VOC, Chlorine and Particulate Reduction.
