Benefits of KX MATRIKX Extruded Carbon Filters


  • 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 VOC, Chloroform, Turbidity and Chlorine, Taste & Odor Reduction Filters

Made of “MATRIKX Extruded Carbon,” the KX MATRIKX +5 Filter is a rigid, carbon block composite that provides optimal VOC reduction and high chemical adsorptive capacity. The MATRIKX VOC is also designed to deliver exceptional chlorine taste and odor reduction. The MATRIKX VOC is ideal for use in residential and food service applications.MATRIKX VOC filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency. MATRIKX VOC filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt- holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, MATRIKX VOC cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the MATRIKX VOC filter is greatly extended by a prefiitration medium
