Omnipure Filtration MediaTaste and Odor Reduction
Granulated Carbon (GAC) has long been utilized to reduce impurities in potable water. It is widely recognized for its adsorption capacity plus its ability to reduce dissolved organics and chemicals such as chlorine. These and other impurities can cause undesirable taste, odor and color in water.
Omnipure offers several choices of GAC for use in any filter body. Standard choices include 20x50 mesh, used in most conventional instances, and acid washed activated carbon which is used in specific situations where highly polished filtered water is required. Specialized carbon selections are also available.
We incorporate the most effective sediment removal technologies to address specific problems. The various media are effective in reducing contaminants ranging in size from 50 microns to as low as 1 micron, depending on the need. Filtration down to 1 micron is adequate to reduce cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium.
The Omnipure design utilizes a multi-layer depth filtration construction that is vastly superior to single layer alternatives. The benefits of this process are threefold. Overall filtration capacity is increased, pressure drop due to sediment buildup is reduced and service life is greatly extended.
Often used in conjunction with GAC, polyphosphate is ideal for the protection of equipment such as ice makers, beverage equipment, and pumps. It is excellent for potable water because it is tasteless and odorless.
Omnipure Carbon Block
Omnipure introduced its own carbon block filtration media in the spring of 1999. With the market demanding better, more refined filtration options, Omnipure felt the need to supply their customers the best media option available. The only way to do this was to start from the ground up and create a new, innovative carbon block.
Omnipure's engineering team created a new, state-of-the-art compression molding process. This advanced method produces a strong, one piece block with an extended life. It is unsurpassed at removing chlorine, sediment, taste, odor and organic contaminants. Due to its highly uniform molded structure, the Omnipure carbon block benefits include the reduction of carbon fines release and elimination of channeling and bypass.
