Aries AF-10-4080 Scale (Hardness,) Chlorine, Taste, Odor Filter Cartridge
Size is 2.5" x 10" - MADE in USA
Scale (Hardness) / Chlorine / Taste / Odor Filtration
This proprietary filter mixture contains a high capacity weak acid ion
exchange resin to reduce calcium and magnesium (hardness contributors) as well as granular
activated carbon to maximize the removal of chlorine, odor and taste. The ion exchange
media reduces hardness associated with alkalinity, preventing water
scale formation. The granular activated carbon (GAC) has been specially
prepared for use in drinking water filters and removes chlorine and
enhances the quality and taste of the drinking water. The media is
buffered to provide pH balance.
About Scale, Taste and Odor Removal -
Water is a good solvent and picks up impurities easily. As water moves
through soil and rock, it dissolves minerals and holds them in solution.
Calcium and magnesium dissolved in water are the two most common
minerals that make water "hard”" The minerals responsible for hard water
tend to form insoluble salts, also known as scale. Formation of scale
on heating elements reduces the efficiency of small machines. A point of
use cartridge removes scales by use of a weak acid ion exchange resin
and in combination with GAC, removes chlorine to improve taste and odor.
