Whole House Catalytic Carbon Filter with Sediment Filter - In/Out Valve. Carbon Filter size 9x48'. Big Blue Housing/Sediment filter 4.5x20'. Removes Chloramines/Chlorine/VOCs
Chloramine is a chemical complex formed from ammonia and chlorine. This is being used by many municipalities to disinfect water supplies. Using chloramines reduces the formation of THMs [Trihalo Methanes: which is a byproduct of chlorinating water, and is sometimes linked to causing cancer]. In choosing carbon for chloramine removal, a specially prepared carbon called “catalytic” carbon is far superior to regular carbon. Catalytic carbon is a specifically processed grade of filter carbon that is designed especially for, among other things, exceptional chloramine removal. A whole-house filter system treats all water traveling to any faucet or fixture in the home. It removes the chemical before it can be ingested, breathed in, or absorbed by the skin during washing or bathing. A larger carbon filter like this one provides better filtration because of the amount of carbon, and does not cause a water pressure drop in your home compared to solid block carbon filter installed at the point of entry.
The Sediment Filter installed before the Catalytic Carbon filter, prolongs the life of the filter by removing sediment that can clog the carbon media, and clarifies the water entering your home.
Carbon is a substance that has a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known to man. One pound of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 125 acres and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities.
As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. The two most important factors affecting the efficiency of catalytic carbon filtration are the amount of carbon in the unit and the amount of time the contaminant spends in contact with it. the more carbon the better. Similarly, the lower the flow rate of the water, the more time contaminants will be in contact with the carbon, and the more absorption that will take place. This is a 9X48' filter, it will hold 1 cu ft of carbon. Catalytic Carbon does not remove sediment / particulate material very well, so they are often preceded by a sediment filter. This eliminates gross contaminants that would otherwise clog the catalytic carbon, thereby reducing the surface area available for absorption.. This unit comes with a 4.5x20' Big Blue Sediment Filter.
All of our sediment filters use multi-gradient spun polypropylene filter cartridges. These cartridges use the entire depth of their media by trapping the largest sediment particles on the outside of the filter, then gradually stepping down the size of particles they will reject as the water moves closer to the core of the filter. The result is longer filter life, greater dirt-holding capacity, higher flow rates, and remarkably low pressure drop. The 100% pure polypropylene media is highly resistant to bacteria and chemicals, making this an excellent choice for both well water and municipal water treatment applications.
This System includes the following:
9x48' Media Tank (Almond,Black or Blue)
4.5x20' Big Blue Housing with Sediment Filter
1 cubic ft of Catalytic Carbon media
