CTO-series Carbon Block Cartridges are made from select grades of coconut, palm or nut shell or coal based carbons to best suit the application. The unique pore structure of these carbon types make them well suited for efficient chemical adsorption, including the removal of VOCs, while reducing chlorine and chemicals that contribute to taste and odor. Carbon Block Cartridges provide 1~20μm particulate filtration and may be used for sediment as well as for tastes, odor and chlorine removal from feed water supplies.The service life of a CTO-Series Carbon Block Cartridges is greatly extended by an outer layer of a 10~15μm polypropylene non-woven pre-filtration media that removes suspended solids in many installations without the need for additional pre-filtration. Carbon Block Cartridges are ideal for residential and food service applications where improving the taste and appearance of the water is the primary objective.
Domestic use: Chlorine removal in point-of-entry appliances and in point-of-use appliances: washing machines, showers and drinking water units.
Commercial use: Chlorine removal in health food product manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and as essential pre-treatment for the protection of reverse osmosis membranes.
