Activated Alumina Cartridges for Fluoride Removal



Activated Alumina Cartridges

Bone char carbon, activated alumina and reverse osmosis systems are the three EPA and WQA recommended methods for removing fluoride from drinking water.  Some companies claim that regular carbon filters will remove fluoride, but this is not correct.  Also, don’t be fooled by single multi-media cartridge units that contain a small amount of media in addition to carbon – a full cartridge of 100% fluoride removal media is needed to allow proper contact time for effective fluoride removal!


Activated Alumina media.

The activated alumina filter reduces lead, arsenic, and fluoride in your water without adding any harmful chemicals or substances to the water

Activated Alumina is widely used as catalyst for recovering sulfur in petrochemical industry, excellent deflourinating agent for drinking water, deflourinating agent for recycling alkyl-hydrocarbon in alkylbenzene production, reclaiming agent for deacidic in transformer oil, dearsenic agent in acid industry, absorbent in the production of hydrogen peroxide solution, catalyst for polyhydro-ammonia by substituting silica gel with ball-shaped product, desiccator and purifying agent for different kinds of gases and liquids.

Is Fluoride good for you?

Most of us put our trust in fluoride to help prevent tooth decay. It is a common ingredient in toothpaste and mouthwashes, and several countries, including large parts of the Australia, add fluoride to the water supply.

There are those who argue that fluoride prevents tooth decay, however not all scientists are enthusiastic about fluoride. Recent evidence suggests it is not as effective in preventing tooth decay as was originally thought. In fact, it is believed fluoride treatment has the capacity to cause dental disease.

There is also some evidence that fluoride may increase the risk of other health issues, including weakened bones and thyroid conditions. So could adding fluoride to drinking water be doing us more harm than good?

Fluoride is a by-product of certain manufacturing practices (primarily the phosphate fertiliser industry). Precisely what lay behind the decision to add it to water supplies is not clear. Fluoride is, after all, a potentially toxic waste product.

When fluoridation of water started 60 years ago, there was no good evidence to suggest that fluoride might prevent tooth decay. However, partly as a result of later studies which suggested it might have tooth-protecting qualities, fluoridation of water became accepted practice.

How much fluoride is added to the water?

In NSW  for instance, fluoride is added to the water supply at a level of 1 milligram per litre (mg/L) in line with the National Health and Medical Research Council recommendations. One milligram per litre is 1 part per million. The National Health and Medical Research Council recommend a fluoridation range of 0.6-1.1 mg/L. This range is to allow lower fluoridation levels in warmer parts of Australia where a person’s water consumption may be higher and replicates a similar recommendation in the United States. The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines allows a maximum level up to 1.5 parts per million.
