What is in a KDF filter?

What are KDF Process Media for filtration? KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) process media are high-purity copper-zinc granules that reduce contaminants in water using an oxidation/reduction (redox) reaction.

What is KDF carbon filter?

KDF stands for Kinetic Degradation Fluxion. KDF® filter medium is a high-purity formulation of copper-zinc alloy that reduces contaminants such as chlorine, bacteria and heavy metals using a chemical process called redox, or oxidation-reduction.

How long does a KDF filter last?

The KDF filter is good for up to 100,000 gallons or 6-12 months.

What is KDF media?

KDF water filter media extend the life of granular activated carbon (GAC) while protecting the carbon bed against fouling by bacterial growth. Our water filter media are also used to replace silver-impregnated systems.

How does a KDF filter work?

KDF works by reducing contaminants in water using oxidation/reduction (redox) reaction. Redox is an electro-chemical reaction where electrons are transferred between molecules to create new elements. Harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components.

Does KDF filter remove bacteria?

All KDF Process Media forms are effective in controlling the buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale, making them ideal for use in GAC beds, ion exchange resins, carbon block filters and inline carbon filters.

Are KDF Filters safe?

KDF process media are completely safe. KDF media meet EPA and Food and Drug Administration standards for levels of zinc and copper in potable water, so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects.

Does a KDF filter soften water?

Mediaguard with KDF 55 medium is truly an economic pretreatment unit which is able to turn your water softener into a high performance water purification system by reducing or removing chlorine, heavy metals from water without adding chemicals.

Are KDF filters effective?

KDF Filters also supplement the activated carbon filters by removing heavy metals, which carbon-based filters do not remove very effectively. Why is KDF Used in Shower Water Filters? KDF is effective at higher operating temperatures and flow rates so it is used in home showerhead filters.

Does KDF filter arsenic?

Using a process of electro-chemical oxidation known as “redox” (Oxidation-Reduction), KDF media is a zinc-copper alloy that removes 99.9% of free chlorine, heavy metals, nitrates, nitrites, silver, aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, copper, iron, nickel, zinc, lead, chromium, barium, hydrogen sulfide, radon, selenium.

Are KDF water filters safe?

Are KDF filters good?

KDF filters successfully extend the filter life and increase the performance of organic based media and maintain their efficacy even at high water temperatures. The media produces an electrochemical reaction with the result of changing harmful water contaminants into harmless components that can be easily removed.
