Carbon cartridges made with Fibredyne™ technology are far more advanced than traditional carbon block cartridges. Benefits of higher flow rates, lower pressure drops, higher treatment capacity and less susceptibility to premature blocking from sediment make them the leading carbon cartridges on the market.
The fibres (coated in powdered activated carbon) have a very large surface area to offer increased capacity, more flow paths to allow for increased flow and reduced pressure drop and also create areas where sediment can be trapped.
The construction methods used to manufacture Fibredyne™ cartridges allow for a variety of constituents to be incorporated that solve specific application problems. Lead and other heavy metals removal can be targeted, Cryptosporidium and Giardia cysts removed and developments that produce no fines or Sulphur release is a particular benefit in electroplating applications. Fibredyne™ technology also enables the use of moulded Santoprene gaskets, meaning no glues are used and the risk of end-caps being left in the housing during cartridge change is vastly reduced.
Cartridges contain hexametaphosphate that dissolves slowly in water to inhibit scale and rust build-up.
Hexametaphosphate crystals help prevent lime and scale deposits Effective for treating corrosion and iron problems
Scale: Hardness particles are kept separated so they cannot precipitate and form deposits when heated; maximum hardness 15 gpg
Corrosion: A protective coating is formed on all metal surfaces, safeguarding against acidity/alkalinity, hardness, chloride and other factors which effect the corrosion of water equipment and pipes; pH range 6.5-9.0
Iron: Dissolved iron, up to 1 ppm, is kept suspended in solution (sequestered), preventing dissolved iron from precipitating, which would cause staining and discoloration
