Adsorption helps remove more contaminants that mechanical straining alone
Activated carbon in 3M™ Whole House Water Treatment Media ACC-050P works via a process called adsorption. Adsorption is the process of adhesion of a very thin layer of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or dissolved solid to a surface of an adsorbent, in this case activated carbon.

Carbon provides vast surface area within a small footprint
Activated Carbon is typically derived from wood, coal or coconut shell base material. The process to manufacture activated carbon includes heating the carbon material slowly to 800°C/1,472°F in an inert atmosphere, then exposing the carbon material to phosphoric acid, steam or an air stream. This activation process oxidizes all particles on the carbon material surface, leaving the surface free to attract and hold organics like chlorine. One pound of activated carbon has an approximate surface area equal to 100 acres.
