Activated carbon has remarkable cleaning and absorptive properties, which makes it an effective way to purify water. Chemicals and contaminants in the water are bonded at a molecular level to the carbon, effectively removing them from the water.
The addition of stabilized or reticulated KDF® 55 / KDF® 85 media is used to complement activated carbon filters. It aids in the removal of chlorine when treating municipal waters, and extends the carbon’s life, while limiting bacterial growth in the filter. Additionally, the KDF® has the ability to remove water-soluble cations via the oxidation-reduction process, resulting in a cost effective alternative to chemical treatment.
KDF® 55 media removes chlorine, and reduces heavy metals. KDF® media are bacteriostatic and inhibit the growth of microorganisms in the filter.
APPLICATIONS DRINKING WATER - Carbon / KDF® cartridges are used in a variety of pretreatment or primary treatment for home and commercial drinking water systems. The use of this filter extends the life of existing cartridges and reduces cost by reducing the frequency of filter change outs.
PRIVATE WELLS - KDF® media are incorporated into combinations with carbon and other matrices for bacteria control and scale reduction for treating contaminants in water.
REVERSE OSMOSIS AND DEIONIZATION SYSTEMS - This cartridge protects RO systems from chlorine degradation, and ion exchange media from bacterial contamination, extending the life of the systems components and reducing operating cost.
Filter cartridge Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for material requirement(s) only.
Filter Cartridge Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 372 for low lead compliance
