KDF-55 Media For Chlorine and Heavy Metals 1kg
KDF-55 For Chlorine and Heavy Metals
KDF 55 Medium is designed specifically for removing or reducing chlorine and water-soluble heavy metals. It controls scale, bacteria and algae, even in hot water. The process medium recently received NSF International Certification and is certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 – Drinking Water Treatment Units – Aesthetic Effects.
This medium is also in compliance with California’s Health and Safety Code Section 166875 (or commonly know as AB1953) and Vermont Act 193.
In addition to KDF 55 Process Medium for POU water filters, KDF Fluid Treatment, Inc. manufactures KDF Process Media in other forms for other specific water filtration applications.
KDF 55 Process Medium Works KDF 55 Process Medium is a high-purity copper-zinc alloy. When used in a water treatment unit, it undergoes a chemical process known as redox.
Redox is short for oxidation-reduction, which is a chemical reaction where electrons are transferred between molecules. In some cases, such as free chlorine, this transfer results in the formation of benign substances, such as chloride in this case, which then passes through the filter. In a similar way, copper, lead, mercury, and other heavy metals react to plate out onto the medium’s surface effectively being removed from the water supply.
KDF 55 Process Medium is so effective that it removes up to 98% of inorganic water-soluble heavy metals that are a concern to many public health officials and many consumers. In addition, KDF 55 Process Medium controls micro-organisms and reduces lime scale in problem areas like showers and tubs.
KDF 55 Process Medium even changes water-borne calcium molecules that inhibit scale build-up and improves the taste of some of your favourite beverages.

KDF 55 medium can remove over 99% of free chlorine. This frees up granular activated carbon for more effective removal of organic contaminants, which affect water quality and foul downstream ion exchange resins and membranes. KDF 55 medium can also be used to replace GAC entirely. Because KDF 55 medium provides more efficient chlorine removal, you’ll benefit from a more cost effective water treatment system. Chlorine removal costs can be reduced 50% or more with KDF 55 medium.
Household water treatment
Both point-of-entry and point-of-use applications use KDF media to remove chlorine, lead, bacteria, iron, other heavy metals, and a variety of other impurities. For whole-house water systems, KDF media remove chlorine and other impurities from the water supply at the point-of-entry. For chlorine removal in point-of-use applications, KDF media is incorporated into shower filters and into cartridges at the tap. KDF media are also used in water treatment systems in recreational vehicles.
