The AC-10 is a high quality drinking water cartridge constructed totally of food grade materials intended for use in drinking water. The Granular Activated Carbon is selected for cleanliness and has a minimum Iodine number1 of 1050 and a
minimum Molasses number2 of 200. This quality assures performance in taste and odour removal and organics reduction (including THMs). High abrasion resistance gives the AC-10 the ability to withstand transporting without dust formation.
Cartridge life depends on feedwater quality and can often be extended by use of a sediment removal prefilter to prevent premature clogging of the media’s active sites.
These cartridges are not suitable for whole house use and are for cold water service.
As with all carbon based cartridges this filter should be run for at least 5 minutes after installation to remove carbon fines and flushed for 20 seconds before using the water for drinking.
