While New Millennium Concepts, Ltd. has not conducted specific testing for sulfuric acid, our expectation is that reduction of sulfuric acid should occur for the following reasons:
- Sulfur reduction is typically best achieved using anion exchange resins. Black Berkey® Purification Elements use ion exchange for the reduction of copper, iron, sulfur and other heavy metals. Learn more.
- Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is composed of hydrogen, sulfur and oxygen. Black Berkey® Purification Elements remove the rotten egg smell, which is sulfur.
Nevertheless, since NMCL has no specific testing for sulfuric acid, we cannot make any specific claims for sulfuric acid reduction. Factors that could have an impact on any reduction would be the strength of the sulfuric acid contamination, as well as other competing contaminates in the water.
NMCL always recommends that you use the cleanest source of water available, whenever possible.
