The KX Matrikx + CTO/2 32-425-125-975 water filter removes chlorine taste and odor and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while also providing the sediment filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient 5 micron nominal sediment filter. These filters work great where both a sediment and activated carbon filter are needed. The extrusion process allows the production of a carbon block with more carbon, but a lower pressure drop. The + CTO water filter delivers extended life while removing sediment, chlorine taste and odor and organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. They are also widely used in filtering organic solvents. They are ideal for use in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service, pre- and post-RO systems. This carbon filter is manufactured from high purity acid-washed activated carbon. The dirt-holding capacity and the absence of carbon fines makes the KX MATRIX + CTO the filter of choice.
