Activated Carbon Filter Cartridges
Extruded Activated Carbon
Activated carbon, a porous substance with strong
physical adsorption forces, has the highest volume of adsorbing porosity of any material known
to mankind. By carbonization and activation, activated carbon can be made from many substances containing high carbon content such as
coal, wood, bamboo and coconut shells.
Activated carbon filters are widely applied in
industrial process and civil use as the most efficient method of removing odours, chlorine, volatile organic compounds (VOC), colours, tastes
and other contaminants from fluids.

Filtertec Activated Carbon Filter Cartridge — UKX Series
Filtertec UKX series, the new generation of carbon cartridges produced by extrusion process,
provide long service life and superior adsorption performance compared to conventional
granular activated carbon cartridges. With high mechanical strength and low ash content, the
carbon block structure prevents channelling, bypassing, fluidizing or unloading of carbon fines.
To prevent premature plugging of the activated carbon layer the UKX filters incorporate an
effective pre-filtration layer designed to intercept gels and large particle.
UKX activated carbon cartridges can be supplied in any length and end cap configuration to
meet the requirements of the process application.

Warning: For drinking water applications, do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality
without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
Note: The UKX cartridge will contain a very small amount of carbon fines (very fine black powder) and a new cartridge
after installation should be flushed with sufficient water to remove traces of the fines from your water system before
using the water. It is recommended that you run (flush) for at least 20 seconds prior to using water
*Note: Estimated capacity tested at given flow rate using 2 ppm free available chlorine at continuous flow to with
greater than 90% reduction
Note: Increased flow rates may result in less effective chlorine reduction.
Note: Micron ratings are based on 85% removal of given particle size.
