KX MATRIKX Pb1 Lead, VOC, Cyst, Chlorine Taste & Odor Filter

20 Inch Standard Size | 06-250-20-GREEN | 0.5 Micron | Replaces 06-250-125-20

The KX MATRIKX Pb1 is a powerful, multifunctional filter cartridge for residential and commercial water treatment, providing exceptional lead and cyst reduction (including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma). KX MATRIKX Pb1 activated carbon block filters reduce soluble lead using an ion-exchange ­filter medium with high specifi­city for soluble lead. Particulate ­filtration is used to intercept insoluble lead-containing particles. Manufactured with KX’s proprietary extrusion process, MATRIKX Pb1 fi­lters offer high levels of chemical reduction in potable drinking water, including chlorine taste and odor.

KX MATRIKX 06-250-20-GREEN is the factory recommended direct replacement for 06-250-125-20, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.

Matrikx® CTO® Carbon block filters are now powered by GreenBlock® technology.

  • 0.5 micron nominal filtration for removal of cysts, sediment, dirt, rust, and suspended solids.
  • Exceptional lead, turbidity and cyst reduction (including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma): for safer, healthier drinking water.
  • Chlorine Taste and Odor Reduction as well as Dirt and Sediment Removal for better tasting drinking water, and protection of downstream equipment. Nominal filtration rating of .05 Micron.
  • Exceptionally low pressure drop.
  • High dirt holding capacity.
  • High capacity Chlorine reduction.
  • Excellent VOC and chemical contaminant reduction.
  • High Adsorptive Capacity and Efficiency.
  • NSF and WQA certification for Material Safety.
  • California Prop. 65 compliance

Benefits of KX MATRIKX Extruded Carbon Filters

  • Chlorine Taste and Odor Reduction as well as Dirt and Sediment Removal: for better tasting drinking water, and protection of downstream equipment.
  • No release of carbon fines: Extruded carbon filters do not release activated carbon particles ("gray water") during startup or operation. Extensive flushing or "activation" of extruded filter elements is not required.
  • No channeling, fluidizing, or bypassing: Extruded carbon is a rigid structure that prevents movement of the adsorbent particles or the formation of channels and defects in the adsorbent structure.
  • Low pressure drop: Water flows through an extruded filter element in the "radial" direction (from the outside of the filter element to the inside). This results in nearly fifteen times more prefiltration surface area and a much lower flow "density".
  • Low binder content and high dirt capacity: Only a small amount of thermoplastic binder is used in the extrusion process, about one-half of what is used in a molded carbon block.

About KX MATRIKX with GreenBlock Filter Technology

KX Filters with GreenBlock SustainableKX Technologies® and Filtrex Technologies®, both Marmon Water/Berkshire Hathaway companies, have teamed up to combine the very best of their Matrikx® and GreenBlock® carbon block lines, into a single world class product offering. The new and improved product line is the result of decades of experience in R&D, design, formulation, and manufacture of high-performance carbon block filters.

Matrikx® filters, powered by GreenBlock®, are made from 100% coconut shell carbon, a renewable, and ecologically sustainable material. The carbon is processed into blocks using a unique binder system and proprietary manufacturing techniques to produce filters with a greater number of micro-pores and available carbon surface area, which display superior adsorption capacity and kinetic dynamics.

The companies are committed to Research and Development to advance filtration technology in an ecologically sound way.
