Chlorine Filter

http://www.bestfilters.com/misc/ChlorineGuzzler.pdf

Matrikx+1 extruded carbon filters offer the highest chemical
adsorption capacity of any filter having similar dimensions, with
comprehensive removal of chlorine and chemicals that contribute
to taste and odor and high VOC removal capacity. Matrikx+1
filters provide 2μm absolute particulate filtration and extended life
as a fine sediment and silt control filter. Matrikx+1 filters flow in
the radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt
capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon
(GAC) filters, Matrikx+1 filters will not channel or bypass, due
to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core.
Service life of Matrikx+1 filters is greatly extended by two
layers of prefiltration media consisting of a coarse 15μm, outer
prefiltration layer and a fine, 5μm, inner layer. Matrikx+1
provides the longest service life of any high-contaminant-levelremoval
carbon filter. Recommended installations are in fluids
having upstream 1-5μm prefilters.
Function: removal of chlorine, volatile organic compounds
(VOCs), chlorinated hydrocarbons, particulates, and organic
impurities from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions, and
many organic solvents (call KX Industries for advice regarding
non-aqueous applications).
Applications: residential and industrial water purification systems,
industrial effluent water treatment, food service, pre- and post-RO
systems, industrial makeup, product rinse, and process water.

Test Results: Standard 2.50” O.D. x 1.25” I.D. x 9.75”L. Matrikx+1 extruded carbon filters removed
all detectable free chlorine (<0.05 ppm) to provide greater than 99% removal of free chlorine from an
influent containing 6 ppm free chlorine, continuously flowing at 1 gpm, and maintained this removal
efficiency to the end of the test (total flow of 6,000 gallons).
Test Results: Standard 2.50” O.D. x 1.25” I.D. x 9.75”L. Matrikx+1 extruded carbon filters were tested
with municipal tap water from Bridgeport, CT, at 60 psig system pressure, to determine differential-pressure
vs. flow curves. Matrikx+1 filters have an initial flow resistance of 3.0-3.5 psid at 1.00 gpm.
