Description- Inline Carbon Filter (GAC)
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) is designed to remove unpleasant taste and odours as well as sediment to produce cleaner, clearer, better tasting water. The Granular Activated Carbon filters are easily installed on the water line to an automatic icemaker, Reverse Osmosis System or water dispensing system. GAC has an extremely large amount of adsorption surface area, generally around 73 acre/lb (650 m2 /gram) to 112 acre/lb (1000 m2 /gram) . GAC is made of tiny clusters of carbon atoms stacked upon one another, and is produced by heating the carbon source (coal, lignite, wood, nutshells or peat) in the absence of air which produces a high carbon content material.
Activated carbon bonds to thousands of known chemicals. As water is forced through the carbon, it is forced to slow its flow speed and thereby increase the contact time with the carbon. This slowing of the flow allows the carbon bonding to take place and remove chemical pollutants like toxins, THM’s, chlorine, pesticides, bad tastes, odours, etc.
Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) water filters offer quick and easy installation with installation instructions located directly on the filter.
The GAC Carbon In-line filter replaces most inline 10″ x 2″ filters. Inline carbon filters can be used for pre-filtration in RO systems, as well as for post-filtration or polishing filter.
