Chloramines/Hydrogen Sulfide Reduction
Chloramine is commonly and increasingly used as an alternative disinfectant to chlorination in municipal water systems. High volume chloraminated water discharge is toxic to fish, amphibians, and water-based reptiles. Although the effects of chloramine on human health is inconclusive, some people have experienced negative symptoms such as burning skin, red rashes, itching, dry mouth and throat, digestive problems, wheezing, and severe asthma. With regards to hydrogen sulfide, this common water pollutant does not pose a health risk but it does give water an unpleasant “rotten egg” smell and taste.
The FI-CHLORAMINE20-BB water filters utilize advanced catalytic granular activated carbon to effectively remove chloramine and hydrogen sulfide from the water. Catalytic carbon retains all of the absorptive properties of activated carbon, but it also has the unique ability to promote or catalyze chemical reactions. First, it adsorbs contaminants such as sulfides onto the surface of the carbon particles. Then, in the presence of dissolved oxygen, it oxidizes the sulfides and converts them into non-objectionable compounds. This conversion process makes calytic activated carbon the most effective media available for the removal of chloramines and hydrogen sulfide from water supplies.
The FI-CHLORAMINE20-BB filter will fit in our Big Blue 20" standard housings and it can treat up to 8,000 gallons of water.
