Carbon Block

Company Reference: 

FX ChloraGuard carbon blocks provide five times more chloramine reduction capacity than standard carbon blocks. With more than 70 million Americans drinking chloraminated water, the need for chloramine filtration products has never been greater. These carbon blocks are available in all standard sizes for POU, POE and light commercial applications.

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.
