For individual contaminant filtration, we offer a range of media filters for a variety of agricultural and industrial applications. HyperLogic media filters are equipped with the latest media technologies, automated control valves and come pre-programmed to backwash, requiring minimal maintenance.
Carbon filters are essential for chlorine/chloramines treatment. These disinfectants are typically added by water treatment plants to ensure bacteria free water. Chlorine/chloramines are very harmful to RO membranes and will degrade their lifespan. Even very small amounts can ruin membranes quickly, making the carbon filter a critical component of proper pre-filtration. These chemicals must be removed completely before coming in contact with the RO membrane.
Carbon filters use Granular Activated Carbon as the media. Each cubic foot of media can treat approximately 750,000 gallons of water that contains 1 PPM chlorine. Water containing chlorine needs a minimum of 5 minutes of contact time with the bed of media to effectively remove 99%+ of the chlorine. Typically, chloramines require three times as much contact time and media volume than chlorine for guaranteed removal.
The control valve on top of the media tank backwashes the media bed on a pre-programmed schedule, ensuring no dirt remains trapped in the media. This process also “fluffs” the media bed into a consistent surface area for continued removal of chlorine/chloramines. Periodic monitoring of the carbon bed to ensure all chlorine is being removed will determine when the carbon needs to be exchanged. This is typically done every 3+ years.
