Iron is one of the Earth’s most plentiful resources, making up at least 5% of its crust. In well water, iron is usually found as ferrous iron, which is in a dissolved state, potentially causing water to appear clear when first drawn from the tap.
Oxidizing filters combat problematic iron contamination
HaloPure removes 99.9% of viruses and bacteria while also preventing bacterial recontamination. Its uses are versatile and it can be applied to a variety of gravity and pressure POU devices. The media has been proven to enhance systems to help them exceed drinking water standards. It can be used with pitcher applications, inline, or with standard 10-in. cartridges for countertop and undersink systems.
KDF offers water filter media for water pretreatment, primary treatment and industrial applications
KDF Fluid Treatment Inc. will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2014.

Two product lines are available, KDF 55 Process Medium and KDF 85 Process Medium, of high-purity granulated copper and zinc-based alloys.
The town of Newport Center, Vt., is a small community of approximately 1,500 residents located just south of the U.S.-Canada border. A combination of drought and increased water use required the drilling of a new well for the community to supplement the two wells already in service. Water quality testing of the new well found arsenic levels at 20 ppb, well above the drinking water standard set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the state of Vermont of 10 ppb.
Arsenic removal system helps New England town meet standards
Dust-free GreensandPlus finely granulated media for drinking water applications requires minimal backwashing upon installation — usually less than 10 minutes. It removes iron, manganese, arsenic, radium and hydrogen sulfide for municipal, industrial, POU, POE and other applications. It has WQA Gold Seal certification and is available in 1⁄2-cu-ft bags on pallets or 2,205-lb bulk sacks.
Zeolite natural media is an inorganic, micro-porous, alumino-silicate material with filtration properties that include a high cation exchange capacity. It is a cost-effective, environmentally safe solution for treating water, wastewater and air pollution contaminants. The media has applications in water and wastewater treatment, pollution control, aquaculture, mining, industrial oil and gas, agriculture, horticulture, food and beverage, and air filtration.
KDF Fluid Treatment Inc. offers literature featuring its KDF 55 Process Medium, which provides a highly effective means of removing contaminants from water at the point-of-use. The brochure includes charts, graphs and illustrations detailing the effectiveness of the medium as well as color photos depicting some of its numerous applications.
