Replacement composite cartridge for KCW-800. Includes Calgon activated carbon and KDF 55.
The composite Catalytic Carbon cartridge contains Calgon Centaur™ Carbon. This is a specially enhanced carbon developed through an advanced process starting as Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). By altering the electron structure of GAC, it enhances its catalytic capability, enabling it to cause chemical reactions without changing its structure. As a result, it promotes a wide range of chemical reactions where conventional carbons are not effective.
KDF is regarded as being one of the newer developments in water treatment and filtration, since its development in 1984, it has grown to be widely regarded as one of the best filtration medias available.
KDF 55 is known to kill algae and fungi, control bacteria growth, and remove chlorine, pesticides, organic matter, rust, unpleasant taste and odour, hydrogen sulfide, iron, lead, nickel,chromium, cadmium, calcium, aluminium, mercury, arsenic, and other organic compounds.
KDF 55 has a wide spread effectiveness against a large number of impurities in water. KDF is optimised when used in conjunction with another filter media, especially any form of Activated carbon (whether in block or granulated form).
