AQUAFILTER FCPRA-C are multimedia filter cartridges. Cartridges were designed such that water flows from bottom to top ensuring a long contact time, allowing for maximum adsorption and treatment. Utilizing a highly efficient longitudinal flow for greater contact time, FCPRA-C is ideal where a long contact time allows for high chlorine as well as other impurity reduction.
Cartridges are filled with water-washed coconut shell activated carbon and food grade polyphosphate. Such a combination provides an efficient removal of contaminants from potable water. Each layer plays an important role in potable water purification. Polyphosphate prevents scale by reacting with dissolved hardness minerals (e.g. calcium carbonate and calcium bicarbonate) and transforming them into harmless, microscopic crystals of calcium orthophosphate. These crystals stay suspended in water and will not create scale build-up in heating elements, pipes, water heaters, boilers, etc.
Moreover polyphosphate helps to deal with iron and all the problems which it causes. Polyphosphates do not remove iron from water. Rather they stabilize and disperse the iron so that the water remains clear and does not produce
iron stains. The FCPRA-C filter cartridges require very little maintenance, no backwashing and no salt. Coconut shell activated carbon used in filter cartridges removes chlorine from water, solvents and aromatic hydrocarbons (improves the taste and odor) and compounds, phenol, benzene, and organic substances. FCPRA-C is equipped with a post-filter pad to prevent carbon from being washed out and to avoid blockage if high particulate is present.
