The "Big Berkey® Non Embossed systems (no Berkey logo) with Super Sterasyl™ Ceramic Filtration Elements" is/was part of the British Berkefeld® product line that comes packaged in a British Berkefeld® shipping box. This system was manufactured and assembled in England. (The print on the shipping box does not say "Big Berkey®").
This tried-and-true Ceramic Filter technology (in continual use since 1827) was the best option for gravity fed water filters, before Black Berkey® Purification Elements were developed by NMCL.
Ceramic Filters can be replaced with Black Berkey® Purification Elements (sold Separately) and used in this system. When the ceramic filters expire, replace with Black Berkey Purification Elements
