Whole Water Filtration   

1. Whole-House Filter or Point of Entry:


A whole-house filter is installed at a point on the home’s water supply plumbing that will result in treatment of all water that travels to any faucet or fixture in the home.

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.

Features and Benefits:

12 x 40 catalytic, high activity granular activated carbon manufactured by steam activation of select coconut shell charcoal. The catalytic activity of this activated carbon makes it highly effective for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from potable water. Its large micropore volume makes it particularly well suited for the removal of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THMs). An important feature of this material is its superior mechanical hardness and the extensive dedusting during its manufacture ensures an exceptionally clean activated carbon product.
  • Application:
  • Chloramines
  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Taste and Odor
  • VOC Removal
  • Iron Removal
  • Residential and Commercial Water Filters
  • Aquarium water treatment

Catalyst


One of the key characteristics of activated carbon is not only the high surface area available relative to their mass, but also the ability to act as a substrate for other materials. Internal surface area in the range of 850-2000m2/g allows the concentrated loading of highly specialized reagents (for example platinum and rhodium for hydrogenation processes) to the carbon surface that can be used in synthesis and catalysis applications across a range of industries. Activated carbons from Catalytic Carbons are carefully engineered to have the correct physical properties to optimize their use in this duty, manufactured from coconut shell, coal or wood bases.

Similarly, the unique reactive nature of the internal surface of activated carbon means that there is an inherent ability for the promotion of reactions between gases and liquids that would either proceed too slowly or generate uneconomic yields of final product. This is achieved without the need for the addition of a chemical reagent to the activated carbon and often true catalysis proceeds, without degradation of the surface or adsorbent.

Catalytic Carbons are engineered with specific characteristics making them ideally suited to use in all sectors of the catalysis market.

Activated Alumina AA 

for Potable Water and a cleaner environment.

 Lowest cost per 1,000 gallons generated by high capacity and low cost 

 Robust material will not deteriorate with backwash.

 Works across a broad range of water chemistries.

 Iron levels do not affect the arsenic capacity.

 Land Fillable, disposable without any hazardous wastes.

 Certified to NSF/ANSI standard 61, and successfully completed an EPA ETV project.

Fluoride & Arsenic Removal for Water Treatment

 Activated Alumina -  is an adsorbent of metals including fluoride from potable water. Regeneration is normally used to operate at the most cost efficient levels.

 Activated Alumina -  is used to simultaneously lower fluoride and arsenic to acceptable levels in one treatment.

KDF Water Filter Media for Primary Water Treatment and Industrial Treatment Processes.


KDF Process Media are used for a variety of pretreatment, primary water treatment, and industrial treatment processes. They are generally used in place of, or in conjunction with, granular activated carbon filters, even carbon block or inline filters. KDF water filter media extend the life of granular activated carbon (GAC) while protecting the carbon bed against fouling by bacterial growth.

Our water filter media are also used to replace silver-impregnated systems. Silver is toxic, KDF Process Media are not. Silver must be registered with the EPA as a toxic pesticide, KDF Process Media do not. By the way, silver is more expensive than KDF Process Media.

We can explain redox (oxidation reduction process) like this: KDF Fluid Treatment's unique combination of copper and zinc creates an electro-chemical reaction. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, and new elements are created. Some harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components. Free chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, react to plate out onto the medium's surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply.

Why use KDF Process Media?

The marketplace is filled with good water filtration/purification systems and technologies (We should know - many of those manufacturers are some of our best customers.)

So why consider using KDF Process Media? We can give you two good reasons (See "Benefits of KDF Process Media" below). One: Because KDF Process Media enhance the performance, extend the life, reduce the maintenance and lower the total cost of many available carbon-based systems. Two: KDF Process Media help control microorganisms by creating an environment that's deadly to some microorganisms and that interferes with the ability of many other microorganisms to function. Either way, the use of KDF Process Media results in the total elimination of some contaminants and a great reduction of a wide variety of others.

Benefits of KDF Process Media

  • Significantly extend the life of granular activated carbon
  • Are recyclable
  • Effectively remove chlorine and heavy metals and control microorganisms
  • Are available in four granular styles, each designed for a specific need
  • Outperform silver-impregnated carbons
  • Require no EPA registration, thus less red tape

What about KDF Process Media and RO, DI and IX systems?

Reverse Osmosis (RO), Deionization (DI) and Ion Exchange (IX) systems benefit from the use of KDF Process Media because our Media allow these systems to tend to their strengths. Our Media protect RO systems from chlorine degradation and bacterial contamination, extending the life of the systems' membranes. KDF Process Media protect expensive IX systems from becoming fouled with chlorine, algae, fungi and bacteria. Less fouling, longer life and reduced maintenance, all combine for lower costs.                                                                                                                                                                                  Fleck 5600SXT digital control valve with timer operation for replacing or upgrading the current valve on most filter tank systems. Digital controller provides a top-of-the-line experience with more efficiency and control than mechanical heads. LCD display shows important information and makes user interaction simple. Easy to use interface simplifies programming and makes setting up a breeze! Adjustable cycles allow complete control over the system, allowing you to fine tune each setting to get the most out of your system. Internal Backup maintains the correct time and prevents loss of settings in the event of a power outage.Time OR Day based backwashing allows you to backwash the system after any given number of days OR on specific day(s) of the week. Standard size mounting base has 2-1/2" - 8 NPSM threads that fit most standard softening tanks. Includes transformer for connecting to standard 110v outlet, Fleck by-pass Valve, 1" Yoke, Drain fitting Barb.
