Polyphosphate Anti-Scale and Calcium Water Filter Replacement Cartridge with Dirt, Rust, Sediment Filtration by KleenWater - 4.5 x 9.75 Inch
Our KW975-BB-Phos filter cartridge provides basic water filtration but also sophisticated water treatment. This filter features a raised ridge, grooved design which provides a significant increase in surface area. Each cartridge contains two distinct micron layers. Larger particles are trapped near the exterior and progressively finer particles towards the filter core. Thus the cartridge has exceptional solids-holding capacity and will perform longer.
The filter core is filled with approximately 5 ounces of FDA approved Siliphos Spheres to sequester the alkaline hardness minerals that often naturally occur. Normally if there is significant calcium bicarbonate (soluble hardness) in the water supply it will revert to calcium carbonate (insoluble precipitate) when heated. Calcium carbonate is referred to as scale. This scale creates incredible inefficiency. 1/8" scale build-up in a hot water system can increase energy demands 30-40%. Also scale will reduce water pressure by clogging pipes downstream. The sequestration characteristics of the polyphosphate ingredient react with the hardness ions and prohibit them from precipitating to a solid as they otherwise would. SILIPHOS prevents scale and also stops corrosion. It utilizes minute concentrations of polyphosphates that are sufficient to inhibit the deposition of scale onto metallic surfaces. Because of its phosphate and silicate content SILIPHOS also inhibits corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface. This film is almost like a glass coating, separating the water from the metal plumbing/hot water system.
- 5 Micron rating (The smaller the micron rating the better the entrapment capability)
- Flow rate: Up to 20 GPM
- Melt blown polypropylene construction
- Significantly prolongs the life and improves efficiency of downstream plumbing.
- Protects water systems from acidic corrosion and hard water scale.
- Saves energy which is both environmentally friendly and economical.
- Recommended cartridge change every 6 months or upon substantial pressure reduction
- Shrink wrapped for purity
The industry universal dimension of 4.5 inch x 9.75 inch makes it compatible with filter housing manufacturers such as GE, Culligan, Cuno, Omni, Kenmore, Whirlpool and Ametek, among others.
