Vyair ChlorPlus carbon block cartridges help reduce sediment while providing greater chloramine performance capacities than granular carbon. They also significantly reduce the carbon fines found in many granular canisters.
Chloramine is commonly used in low concentrations as a secondary disinfectant in municipal water distribution systems as an alternative to chlorination. This application is increasing. Chlorine (referred to in water treatment as free chlorine) is being displaced by chloramine — to be specific monochloramine — which is much more stable and does not dissipate as rapidly as free chlorine. Adding chloramine to the water supply may increase exposure to lead in drinking water, especially in areas with older housing; this exposure can result in increased lead levels in the bloodstream, which may pose a significant health risk.
Chloramines should be removed from water for dialysis, aquariums, hydroponic applications, and home brewing beer. Chloramine must be removed from water prior to use in kidney dialysis machines because it can cause hemolytic anemia if it enters the blood stream. In hydroponic applications, chloramine stunts the growth of plants.
Activated carbon has been used for chloramine removal long before catalytic carbon, a form of activated carbon, became available; standard activated carbon requires a very long contact time, which means a large volume of carbon is needed. For thorough removal, up to four times the contact time of catalytic carbon may be required.
All of these cartridges utilize advanced activated carbon technology which allows superior chloramine and chlorine reduction. The range of sizes and capacities offered makes them ideal for both point-of-entry (POE) and point-of-use (POU) applications.
SPECIFICATIONS AND PERFORMANCE
*Based on manufacturer's internal testing.
NOTE: Some harmless bacteria will attack cellulose media cartridges. If your cartridge seems to disintegrate or has a musty or mouldy odour, switch to a synthetic media cartridge or consult the manufacturer. Estimated capacity tested at given flow rate using 2 ppm free available chlorine to 0.5 ppm breakthrough and 3 ppm chloramine to 0.5 ppm breakthrough. Increased flow rates may result in less effective chlorine reduction.
WARNING: For drinking water applications, do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
