Chloramines removal with Catalytic Carbon
What are Chloramines?
Most of us have memories of chlorine from our days at the pool. When we stay in the pool longer than we should, we become aware of the fragrance and the peculiar impact it has on our skin and mucous membranes. Due to its low cost and potency, it has become the disinfectant of choice for swimming pools and our public water sources.
Chlorine continues to be utilized in our drinking water sources, and it is being swiftly replaced by chloramine, a compound made composed of chlorine and ammonia. To substitute chlorine in water, chloramines are added. They inhibit the interaction of chlorine with organic plant matter to form producing cancer-causing Trihalomethanes (THMs). Chloramines are used in around 40–50% of American water treatment facilities to disinfect water more effectively in old water distribution pipes. Trihalomethanes (THMs) and significant amounts of disinfection byproducts come at a price from using Chlorine & Ammonia for disinfection – Chloramines.
What is Catalytic Carbon?
Catalytic Carbon® is based on Coconut Shell Activated Carbon, which produces by Watch Water® Germany, with the highest quality grade. The inner and outer surfaces of Catalytic Carbon® is catalyzed evenly with Iron to enhance the adsorption capacity and therefore removing a large number of contaminants like Chloramines, Trihalomethanes (THMs), Disinfection by Products (DBPs), Hydrogen Sulfide, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Heavy metals (Arsenate, Arsenide, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Fluoride, Lead, Mercury & Selenium). The highest-grade Catalytic Carbon® to remove both organics & Inorganic substances with high capacity – Certified to NSF/ANSI/CAN 61 by Water Quality Association (WQA).
Advantages of Catalytic Carbon
The question of how to get rid of it arises when more and more communities utilize chloramine, which is made by combining chlorine with ammonia. Catalytic Carbon® removes chloramine more efficiently than regular GAC carbon. The likelihood is that your town will employ chloramine eventually since it is less expensive if they do not already. To effectively remove Chloramines with the highest capacity – Catalytic Carbon® manufactured from Watch Water® Germany will provide extra benefits to remove heavy metals & regenerable with Instant Oxydes-P compared to other Activated Carbon or Catalytic Carbon® available in the market.
