Granular Carbon Cartridge 10″

To adsorb the chlorine, organic matter, odor, smell turbidity.

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) cartridges are widely used in water filtration systems for their effectiveness in removing contaminants and improving water quality.

A Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) cartridge contains loose granules of activated carbon, a highly porous material with a large surface area, making it efficient at adsorbing impurities from water. These cartridges are used in various filtration systems to improve the taste, odor, and safety of water.

How Granular Activated Carbon Cartridges Work

  1. Adsorption:
    • GAC cartridges utilize the process of adsorption, where contaminants adhere to the surface of the carbon granules. The large surface area of activated carbon allows for efficient removal of a wide range of impurities.
  2. Chemical Reduction:
    • GAC can chemically reduce contaminants like chlorine and chloramine, which are commonly used disinfectants in municipal water supplies. This process improves water taste and odor.
  3. Physical Filtration:
    • While primarily designed for adsorption, GAC cartridges can also trap some sediment and particulate matter due to the granular structure, though this is not their primary function.

Key Uses of GAC Cartridges

  1. Chlorine and Chloramine Removal:
    • Highly effective at removing chlorine and chloramine, significantly improving the taste and smell of tap water.
  2. Organic Compound Reduction:
    • Removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as pesticides, herbicides, and industrial solvents, which can be harmful to health and affect water quality.
  3. Improving Taste and Odor:
    • Eliminates unpleasant tastes and odors caused by contaminants, making water more palatable.
  4. Heavy Metal Reduction:
    • Some GAC cartridges can reduce levels of certain heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, although this is not their primary function.
