This 10 inch 5 micron dual action filter contains granular carbon as well as KDF oxidation/reduction media to significantly reduce:
- Heavy Metal Contamination
The KDC10 is a high quality drinking water cartridge constructed totally of FDA grade materials intended for use in drinking water where there is a risk of aluminium or heavy metal contamination.
It contains two separate purification media. The first stage is the versatile KDF oxidation/reduction media which removes trace metals, such as aluminium and lead, plus chlorine, prolonging the life of the second, carbon stage.
KDF is listed by the US National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as a drinking water component. KDF is bacteriostatic, meaning that bacteria growth within the media bed is inhibited. The Granular Activated Carbon is selected for cleanliness and has a minimum Iodine number1 of 1050 and a minimum Molasses number2 of 200. This quality assures performance in taste and odour removal and organics reduction (including THMs).
