These carbon cartridges eliminate problems associated with loose carbon treatment. Standard cartridges measure 2 ¾ in. in diameter with lengths of 4 to 40 in. With flow rates reaching 2.5 gpm, cartridges are designed for use in either single- or multi-tubed vessels. Carbon styles include high-grade coconut carbon, carbon impregnated paper and wet-molded carbon block.

Carbon Filtration Basics

Six months ago I opened the refrigerator to pour myself a glass of water from my pour-through pitcher. As I was filling my glass, I realized I could not remember the last time I changed the carbon filter. I had been thinking about replacing the filter for a while—a really long while.

Reclaim, Reuse, Reduce

Gateway Village, a 15-acre mixed-use development complex in North Carolina—designed to bring businesses, retailers, restaurants, new residents and visitors to the area—was developed through a joint venture between Bank of America and Cousins Properties. The complex is home to three office towers totaling more than 1 million sq ft of class A office space. In late 2007, North Carolina and a large portion of the southeastern U.S. endured an exceptional drought that prompted water restrictions across the region.

A Learning Experience

When McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, set about constructing its new Engineering Technology Building, it used the latest state-of-the-art technology not only to achieve U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, but also to create a living laboratory to train students on the building systems of the future. One of the components is a rainwater harvesting system that collects, filters and disinfects rainwater for non-potable and potable use in the building.

Organic Contaminant Removal With Activated Carbon

Activated carbon is commonly used in point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) water applications. Activated carbon is predominantly used to remove organic-based contaminants and inorganic contaminants like free chlorine and monochloramine from water. Other water treatment processes such as reverse osmosis or ion exchange are better suited for other inorganic chemicals that may be present in water.
