Internal filter material options

Not only does KLT Filtration produce a standard range of ceramic water filters, we also tailor the internal filter media to our customer requirements. Depending on the contaminants you want to filter from the water.

Activated Carbon

We use activated carbon to remove chlorine and organic chemicals from water, with the capabilities to use it to remove other contaminants as required.

Carbon Block Filter Element

With high pressure drop we use carbon blocks in mains water supply applications to remove contaminants as our activated carbon does in granular form.

Activated Carbon

Activated carbon is largely used to remove Chlorine, Chloramine, and organic chemicals from water.

KLT Filtration use carbon in two forms within ceramic water filters:

Carbon Blocks

  • Are tightly packed and are able to high levels of contaminants
  • Can incorporate additional materials to increase metals and lead removal
  • Because they have higher pressure drop, are generally used in pressurized mains water supplies
KLT Filtration additional filter materials: Carbon Blocks

Carbon Granules

  • Are very good at improving taste and odour
  • Are good at filtering organic chemicals and have some metals reduction capacity
  • Because they have lower pressure drop are excellent for gravity water filters

Carbon Block Filter Element

Our carbon filter element is a solid carbon block made from the highest quality coconut shell-based activated carbon and other superior adsorbent materials. Utilizing a unique compression molding manufacturing process, the carbon element provides a very uniform pore structure that ensures consistency and high performance.

The carbon element combines mechanical filtration and physical adsorption processes to reduce a wide variety of drinking water contaminants of both aesthetic and health concern. The dense pore structure and vast surface area of the compressed carbon and specialty adsorbents is ideally

suited to improving taste and odor as well as reducing chlorine, chloramine, volatile organic compounds (a group of 50+ chemicals), chlordane, toxaphene, MTBE, PCBs, lead, mercury, asbestos, cyst, submicron particulate matter, turbidity, and arsenic V.

All raw materials are repeatedly tested for quality and consistency, beginning at the point of origin and continuing throughout the carbon block production cycle. The resulting carbon element is then tested.

KLT Filtration can also provide a very basic CTO carbon block which effectively removes chlorine and improves the taste and odour of water.
