This proprietary custom-made carbon formulation consists of powdered KDF media bonded onto the surface of granular activated carbon (GAC). This media controls the buildup of bacteria, algae and fungi, which is often associated with bad tastes and odor in GAC filters. It has enhanced filter performance compared with traditional GAC filters and minimal carbon fines are released.

The Great Activated Carbon Dilemma

Drinking water treatment professionals have long held fast to the belief that granular activated carbon (GAC) based on bituminous coal provides the best performance for their demanding application. That’s why, when an article in 1999 cited evidence that a lignite-based GAC outperformed a bituminous-based carbon, industry experts were surprised and more than a bit skeptical.
