KDF Process Media are high-purity, granulated copper and zinc-based alloys that filter water through a process based upon the principle of redox (Oxidation-Reduction). Originally, KDF was shorthand for Kinetic Degradation Fluxion. We can explain redox 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 compounds are created. KDF 55 Media is unparalleled in Chlorine removal and heavy metal reduction and is listed as a microbial device by the EPA for its outstanding bacteria control, which means KDF is bacteriostatic.
KDF 55 Media is used in chlorine removal applications in conjunction with granular activated carbon. KDF 55 strips the chlorine from the water before the water contacts the carbon. The carbon, not being burdened with the job of chlorine removal is then free to perform higher level carbon filtration. Effective for removal of chemical contaminants including Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC's) and Trihalomethanes (THM's).
Using KDF 55 in conjunction with granular activated carbon extends the life of the filter significantly over using granular activated carbon alone. That means longer service life before replacement is necessary.
KDF is a patented filtration media, and is an NSF, WQA, and ISO9001 certified material. Manufactured to exacting standards of quality, KDF is used the world over in municipal water treatment applications as well as residential whole house, under sink, and shower water filters.
The GAC (Granular Activated Carbon) media helps to further reduce chlorine taste and odors, VOC's, etc. We normally use this KDF/GAC filter in conjunction with a solid carbon block filter element because over time the GAC element may channel and allow some bypass of the GAC. We have used this filter as the first stage in an Undercounter Twin water filter in conjunction with our 1 micron solid Carbon Block (Pb-1) for many years with great success! This Undercounter Twin configuration was among our very first product offerings and we still feel this is a great system for homes on municipal water systems.
Cartridge measures 2.75 x 10", fits all standard 10" housings.
