New Filter Technology Reduces Drinking Water Contaminants
AquaMetix reduces harmful contaminants including Hexafluorosilicic acid
Ceramic Filters Co. Inc. (CFCI) is set to release a new range of residential drinking water filters that will incorporate AquaMetix, a ceramic and carbon technology designed to greatly reduce many harmful contaminants including Hexafluorosilicic acid which is commonly used to add fluoride to municipally treated water supplies for the prevention of tooth decay. This product will be introduced initially as the new premium core of its ceramic filter candles and cartridges. The company plans on introducing a full range of standard filter cartridges in time for the Water Quality Assn. trade show in Indianapolis next spring.
CFCI, as they are commonly referred to have been in the business of distributing point-of-use ceramic filter cartridges and systems for over 23 years. In 2012, the company began the process of becoming a manufacturer of ceramic filters. The CeraMetix range of filters incorporates the new technology and is the culmination of over a decade of research into providing a 21st century solution to an age old type of filtration technology — ceramic filters.
Ceramic Filters vice president, James Webb, explained that this new technology in block format surpasses the traditional carbon block that has saturated the water filter market because of all the different contaminants that it is capable of reducing in a single filter. This technology is ideal for ceramics because of the increased contact time it creates affording greater reduction of potential contaminants in a drinking water supply.
