Multiple Contaminant Removal with KDF Process Media
Posted by Administrator on 11/7/2009
There are many different types of filtration media in the marketplace
and each one claiming different things or having better results than
others. The one media that is a step above the rest is the KDF process
media. It is a special granulated mixture of copper and zinc-based
alloys that can treat water through redox reactions. A redox reaction is
explained simplest as a physical change in molecules or elements
whether it is a splitting or an adding other molecules together.
Therefore, the presence of harmful contaminants is changed into harmless
KDF process media is capable of treating a variety of contaminants
including iron, hydrogen sulfide, chlorine, heavy metals, scale, and
microorganism growth without the use of chemicals or back-washing. KDF
reacts with most metallic elements and hydrogen sulfide by creating
insoluble forms which can be back-washed out of a filter system using a
Fleck, Autotrol or Clack control valve.
KDF process media enhances the performance, extends the life, reduces
maintenance and lowers replacement costs of many available carbon-based
systems. It also helps control microorganisms by creating an
environment that is deadly to some microorganisms and that interferes
with the ability of many other microorganisms to function.
The typical life of KDF media when compared to carbon media is about
5-6x longer making up for the higher cost of the media. KDF should not
be a replacement but a complimentary for carbon media. Together KDF can
help relieve the stress placed on carbon when it comes to inorganic and
chlorine removal allowing carbon to do what it does best which is
removing organic contaminants. Purchase a KDF filter and see the
difference in filter life as well as performance.
