Catalytic Carbon Filters

Catalytic carbon is a specially processed filter medium designed to greatly enhance carbon’s natural ability to promote chemical changes in contaminants.

Standard filter carbon reduces contaminants in two ways. It “adsorbs” chemicals by trapping and holding them, and to a smaller degree, it “chemisorbs” contaminants by changing them to something harmless. Chlorine, for example, can be “catalysed” to chloride. Catalytic carbon retains conventional carbon’s ability to adsorb contaminants but it also possesses a greatly enhanced capacity to catalyse, to promote beneficial chemical reactions.

It is by catalytic action that chloramine is reduced.

Supplied in four different cartridge sizes to suit most filter housings. We supply the catalytic carbon in refillable cartridges, so save money next time when you buy the catalytic carbon media only.
