TREVOLI Jumbo Granular Activated Carbon Cartridges (KDF/GAC)

KDF process media is used in pre-treatment and primary treatment applications to supplement or replace existing technologies in order to extend system life and to reduce heavy metal, chlorine and hydrogen sulfide contamination. It is often combined with other technologies to achieve superior overall results. Because of its effectiveness at higher water temperatures, it is often used on shower water filtration systems to remove chlorine and other contaminants.

How it works 

In short, the KDF redox process works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. This "give and take" of electrons converts many contaminants into harmless components. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, and new compounds are created. Some harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components. Free chlorine, for instance, is changed into benign, water-soluble chloride salt, which is then carried harmlessly through the water supply. Many heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, react and bond with the KDF medium's surface, thus being effectively removed from the water supply.
 

Specifications:

KDF is known to reduce and remove:

*Algae and fungi
*Control bacteria growth
*Remove chlorine <95%
*Pesticides
*Organics
*Rust
*Taste
*Odour
*Hydrogen sulfide
*Heavy Metals such as Iron, Lead, Nickel, Chromium, Cadmium, Aluminium, Mercury, Arsenic
*Calcium

GAC has been used for many years to reduce chlorine, taste and odour from drinking water due to its ability to absorb these components. Due to its high degree of microporosity, just one gram of activated carbon has a surface area in excess of 500m2 

Definitions: 

KDF-Kinetic Degradation Fluxion is a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that uses a basic chemical process known as redox (oxidation/reduction) to remove chlorine, lead, mercury, iron, and hydrogen sulfide from water supplies.

A filter with Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is a proven option to remove certain chemicals, particularly organic chemicals, from water. GAC filters can be used to remove chemicals that give objectionable odors or tastes to water such as hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs odor) or chlorine.

Applications: 

KDF filters are used most often in conjunction with an activated carbon filter. They prolong the life and increase the effectiveness of carbon filters. They also supplement the activated carbon filters by removing certain heavy metals, something that carbon-based filters are not very effective at removing.

KDF is also frequently found in home showerhead filters because of its effectiveness at higher operating temperatures and flow rates.
