In addition to chlorine and, in some occurrences, chloramines, there is an array of man-made and naturally occurring contaminants, such as dissolved organics and pesticides, that impart an off taste and odor in water. Activated carbon is the best technology for reducing chlorine, chloramine, and off taste and odor.
OptiPure CTO filtration cartridges utilize high-quality activated carbon to reduce chlorine, taste & odor. The CTO media structure is entirely composed of a dense structure of fibers coated with Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC). The high-mass of carbon, along with the gradient-depth structure of these cartridges, provides tremendous surface area and contact time as water flows through. This media structure contributes to the exceptional performance and capacity of OptiPure systems.
The NSF-rated capacity provides no assurance that other water treatment technologies, such as scale inhibition, will perform in this capacity. It is important when selecting water treatment for your application to make sure that the system design is balanced, will protect your equipment and deliver all expected performance for its rated capacity.
