Aries FilterWorks Catalytic Carbon cartridge contains Calgon Centaur™ Carbon. This is a specially enhanced carbon developed through an advanced process starting as Granular Activated Carbon (GAC). By altering the electron structure of GAC, it enhances its catalytic capability, enabling it to cause chemical reactions without changing its structure. As a result, it promotes a wide range of chemical reactions where conventional carbons are not effective.
About Catalytic Carbon
Catalytic Carbon provides another alternative to chemical treatment. Essentially, catalytic carbon is activated carbon with a modified carbon surface. Activated carbon filtration removes very small amounts of hydrogen sulfide, and has a limited capacity to adsorb hydrogen sulfide. Catalytic carbon is more efficient due to its unique structure at removing hydrogen sulfide.
Chloramines are used to control bacterial growth in distribution systems and to reduce the formation of trihalomethanes (THMs). However, recent concerns over chloramines in the water supply and its by-products have water professionals looking for products to remove chloramines. This can be achieved by the use of Catalytic Carbon.
