KDF-55 is extremely effective in removing chlorine, taste/odor, and heavy metals like lead, mercury, and nickel from your water. Best used for city water.
KDF-55 process medium is an effective chlorine removal agent used in point-of-entry treatment of municipal water supplies. This unique, innovative and environmentally responsible medium consists of high purity copper-zinc granules that use redox (the exchange of electrons) in patented products to effectively reduce/remove chlorine and heavy metals and control microorganisms in potable water.
The most critical aspect of pressure filter performance is the relationship of flow rate to surface of KDF-55 process medium. Inaccurate sizing is the most common reason for trouble in filter systems. The normal flow rate in the service cycle depends on surface area available. Service flow rates with KDF-55 process medium, however, may be calculated at 15 gpm per square foot of surface area. This is three times the effective flow rate of other filter media.
