Catalytic Carbon Filters

Concerned about chloramines in your tap water? A catalytic carbon filter is one of the most effective ways to eliminate these disinfectant chemicals. This filtering media can also be effective as part of a filtering system to remove iron, magnesium, and sulfur from your water. There are several different types of carbon filters available, so it’s important to know what catalytic carbon is and how it differs from other carbon-based media.

What Is Catalytic Carbon?

Jacobi Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon, made with select coconut shell charcoalCatalytic carbon is a form of granular activated carbon (GAC) that has had the electronic structure of its surface modified to make it more effective as a catalyst. A catalyst is any substance that makes a chemical reaction happen more quickly without itself undergoing any permanent chemical change. GAC is a very effective filter for chlorine and organic contaminants, but once it has been treated to become catalytic, it’s much more effective at decomposing the chloramines. The catalytic carbon in filters from US Water Systems is made from coconut shells.

In order for a catalytic carbon filter to be effective against chloramines, it’s important to ensure that the water maintains contact with the carbon filtering media for enough time. If you’re considering adding a catalytic filter to your water treatment plan, call the Certified Water Specialists at US Water Systems at 1-800-608-8792 to discuss what filter size and flow rate you need for the system to work at its best.

Why Should I Remove Chloramines from My Water?

Chloramines are a group of chemical compounds used as a disinfectant in many municipal drinking water supplies to kill bacteria and other microbes. They are considered less aggressive than chlorine, but more stable against light. According to the CDC, chloramine does not appear to have any adverse health effects in healthy people when consumed in small amounts in drinking water. However, both chlorine and chloramines must be removed from water before it can be used for kidney dialysis. People who keep fish or other aquatic pets should always remove chloramines and chlorine from the water, as these chemicals are extremely toxic to these animals.

While chloramine in small amounts might not be considered dangerous, some people do report that water disinfected with these chemicals can cause skin irritation. Others note that the water may have a slightly green color, a bad taste, and a noticeable odor. Home brewers should always remove these disinfectants as well, as it can cause the beer to have a medicinal or plastic taste.

Because catalytic carbon has been modified to improve its catalytic properties, it can also be used to remove other contaminants. Carbon filters in general are effective at removing many organic solids from water, and catalytic carbon is no different. These filters can also remove or reduce the amount of chlorine, trihalomethanes (THMs), pesticides, strange tastes, and bad odors from your water.

When combined with a hydrogen peroxide injection system, a catalytic carbon filter can help remove iron, magnesium, and sulfur from your water as well. The hydrogen peroxide acts as an oxidizer, turning the contaminants into solids that can be filtered out. The catalytic action of the carbon enhances this process, then the filtering action of the media helps remove the solids.
