KDF-55 drum (63 lbs.)
KDF-55: 1/3 cubic foot drum (63 lbs.) KDF-55 process medium is an effective chlorine removal agent used in point-of-entry treatment of municipal water supplies or other chlorinated water supplies. This unique, innovative and environmentally responsible medium consists of high purity copper-zinc granules that use redox (the exchange of electrons) in to effectively reduce/remove chlorine and heavy metals and control microorganisms in potablewater.
The most critical aspect of pressure filter performance is the relationship of flow rate to surface of KDF-55 processmedium. Inaccurate sizing is the most common reason for trouble in filter systems. The nominal flow rate in the serv-ice cycle depends on surface area available. Service flowrates with KDF-55 process medium, however, may be calculated at 15 gpm per square foot of surface area. This is three times the effective flow rate of other filter media.
