Carbon Filter Insert

Quick Overview

  • A highly porous adsorbent material, produced by heating organic matter, such as coal, wood and coconut shell, in the absence of air, which is then crushed into granules.
  • Activated carbon is positively charged and therefore able to remove negative ions from the water such as ozone, chlorine, fluorides.
  • Also it dissolves organic solutes by absorption onto the activated carbon.
  • Activated carbon is often used as a filter in water treatment systems.
  • Activated carbon is similarly used to lower radon levels in water.

Carbon Filter Insert

Activated carbon, a porous substance with strong physical adsorption properties, has the highest volume of adsorbing porosity of any material known.

By carbonisation and activation, activated carbon can be made from many substances containing high carbon content such as coal, wood, bamboo and coconut shells.

Activated carbon filters are widely applied in industrial process and civil use as the most efficient method of removing odors, chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOC), colors, tastes and other contaminants from fluids.

The Carbon Filter Insert is the new generation of carbon cartridges. They provide long service life and superior adsorption performance compared to conventional carbon cartridges together with minimum fines. With a high mechanical strength and low ash content, the carbon block structure prevents channeling, bypassing, fluidizing or unloading of carbon fines.

To prevent premature blocking of the activated carbon layer, the Carbon Filter Insert incorporate an effective pre-filtration layer designed to intercept gels and large particles.

The Carbon Filter Insert series activated carbon filter cartridges use premium grade extruded carbon blocks and can be supplied.

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.  These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water. Proposition 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include approximately 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987. Proposition 65 became law in November 1986, when California voters approved it by a 63-37 percent margin.  The official name of Proposition 65 is the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.

The list of chemicals contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that include additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, or solvents. Listed chemicals may also be used in manufacturing and construction, or they may be byproducts of chemical processes, such as motor vehicle exhaust.  For more information visit www.p65warnings.ca.gov/
