What Is a Catalytic Carbon Filter System?

Catalytic carbon is a specialized type of filter media used in water treatment. It’s designed to remove specific contaminants more effectively than standard activated carbon filters.
Unlike regular activated carbon, catalytic carbon has an altered structure that enhances its effectiveness. Therefore, it can break down and remove certain impurities more efficiently.

How Is Catalytic Carbon Made?

This filter is made from a special kind of activated carbon, beginning with natural sources like coconut shells or wood. Then, it undergoes a process where it’s treated with a metal catalyst, such as copper or silver. This enhances its ability to remove contaminants from water. This type of filter is especially good at removing substances such as chlorine and hydrogen sulfide. Therefore, it can ensure that your water is cleaner and safer.

What Do Catalytic Carbon Filters Remove?

Catalytic carbon filters are particularly good at removing:

        • Chlorine: Commonly found in city water supplies, since it is used to kill bacteria in the water.
        • Chloramines: This is a combination of chlorine and ammonia used also for disinfection.
        • Hydrogen Sulfide: This is the contaminant that is responsible for that awful “rotten egg” smell in water.
