Carbon filters for water
Aquarum offers individuals and organizations to buy a carbon water filter with high-quality filler. Thanks to it, your family will be able to consume clean water with perfect organoleptic characteristics.
What fills a quality carbon filter
Charcoal is the best absorbent, collecting chlorine, metals, oxides, organics, and all the impurities that spoil water quality on its surface. But high-quality filters do not use ordinary stone or birch charcoal. Coal contains a lot of impurities and heavy metals. Birch, which is used to make charcoal for kebabs, does not have a sufficient density for effective water treatment.
The backfill of carbon filters for water purification is made from coconut shells. It has a high density, which means a greater depth of activation. Therefore, the carbon from it works much better.
First, the shells are turned into pyrolyzed (burned without oxygen) charcoal. The charcoal is activated to increase the surface area by 5,000 times. To do this, the material is treated with steam at 1000°C. After the high-temperature treatment, the coconut charcoal particles become extremely porous.
To ensure that the activated carbon filter lasts as long as possible, the activated carbon granules are mixed with a fine fiber material. The fibers seal the filter and keep the granular filling from forming potholes. Not a single drop of water in such a filter will pass untreated.
Untreated tap water contains mechanical impurities, metals, bacteria, pesticides, chemicals in varying amounts that accumulate in the body and can cause various diseases.
Water treatment helps get rid of the unpleasant taste and odor that appear as a result of an increase in the concentration of inorganic and organic substances in the composition of such water.
Lithuanian water leads to the accumulation of scale on the heating surfaces of electrical appliances, consequently reducing their thermal conductivity. This accelerates appliance failure and increases energy costs.
It is known that the consumption of clean water is extremely important for maintaining health. That is why purified water is necessary for a person to protect himself from many diseases and to continue an active life without doctors and pills.
What organoleptic properties of water are improved by an activated coconut charcoal filter
Organoleptic properties are those determined by the human senses.
- Transparency. It depends on the amount of mechanical and organic suspension in the liquid. Its level is determined by the human eye. Seeing insufficiently clear water, a person has no desire to use it.
- Color. It is influenced by the chemical composition of the liquid. Iron oxides produce yellow, unicellular algae produce green, and humic substances produce brown. In nature, colorless water is extracted only from deep underground sources, in everyday life - from high-quality water treatment systems. Colored water from the tap arouses suspicion and concern.
- Smell. Foreign impurities of chemical and organic origin give H2O its flavor. Many impurities are harmful to the body. Therefore, when the human nose catches a foreign odor, it signals the brain about the danger of contamination.
- Taste. It depends on the mineral composition of the water. The brightness of the taste depends on the concentration of dissolved substances and gases. Boiled water is disinfected, but having lost oxygen and calcium and magnesium salts, it becomes tasteless.
Filtering systems remove impurities from water without spoiling its taste. A carbon filter for water from a well near the house absorbs substances dissolved in it: heavy metals from the polluted urban atmosphere, pesticides from the surrounding agricultural land, humic substances and other organics.
Coconut charcoal filters are not much more expensive than systems with traditional wood fillers. But the efficiency and durability are several times higher.
