Catalytic Carbon for Chloramine Removal

Many water utilities across the U.S. are transitioning to chloramine for disinfection as an alternative to chlorine. This change is in response to stricter U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations on disinfection byproducts (DBPs), which are created when chlorine reacts with organics in water. Chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is more stable and does not create DPBs.

  • The body of a water softener is a tank filled with resin beads; these beads are covered with sodium ions. As hard water passes through, the resin beads act like a magnet, attracting the calcium and magnesium ions (hardness) in exchange for the sodium ions. Eventually the resin beads become saturated with mineral ions and have to be “recharged.” This process is called regeneration and is conducted...
