MATRIKX® CTO® filters are the most recognized carbon block devices in the world and provide previously unattainableperformance. MATRIKX® CTO® filters simultaneously remove chlorine taste and odor and organic chemicals thatcontribute to taste and odor while providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an effcient 5 µmnominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where they perform the role of both a sediment andactivated carbon filter.
KX®’s proprietary extrusion process allows the production of a carbon block with more carbon, but a lower pressuredrop. This enables a MATRIKX® CTO® filter to deliver extended life while removing sediment, chlorine taste and odor andorganic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. The MATRIKX® CTO® is also widely used infiltering organic solvents. The MATRIKX® CTO® is ideal for use in residential and commercial water purificationsystems, food service, pre- and post-RO systems.
The MATRIKX® CTO® is manufactured from high purity activated carbon which meets the regulatoryrequirements put into place by California Proposition 65. Its dirt-holding capacity and the absence of carbon fines makes the MATRIKX® CTO® the filter of choice. A superior carbonblock, MATRIKX® CTO® combines both high performance and integrity with an exceptional cost-to-performance value. As a result, MATRIKX® CTO® virtually renders GAC filtersobsolete by comparison.
