Fluoride Reduction Filter Cartridge 4.5 x 10 Inch
Effective fluoride reduction in your incoming water
High flow rate, low pressure drop
10" filter treats 11,000 ppm Fluoride
Fits all standard 10" Whole House filter housings
10 micron nominal rating
This Activated Alumina Cartridge can be used in conjunction with your 10 Inch large diamater, big blue or clear standard filter housings. The cartridge uses fine activated alumina granular media designed to reduce fluoride levels. This cartridge is perfect for those who are concerned about their levels of fluoride intake and want to reduce this from tap water.
The cartridge has an absorption capacity of 10 mg fluoride/g or 500mg/l so under optimal conditions may be fully effective at removing all the fluoride compounds.
This cartridge uses activated alumina media to effectively remove or reduce fluoride from the water in your home. Drinking water with fluoride levels above 2 ppm (mg/L) can lead to mottling of the teeth and at higher levels above 4 mg/L, it can result in serious health problems. In addition to fluoride, activated alumina can also reduce the levels of hydrogen chloride, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide in the water.
The filter has a capacity of 11,000 ppm* (mg/L) and will fit in our whole house 10" standard big housings.
* To calculate how many gallons the Fluoride Removal Filter can last for the fluoride levels in your source water, take capacity level (23,000 ppm for 20" Fluoride Filter or 11,000 ppm for 10" Fluoride Filter) and divide it by the fluoride levels from your water before it enters the filter.
Example (1): If the fluoride levels in your water is 0.5ppm per gallon, it can treat up to 46,000 gallons (23,000 ppm / 0.5ppm per gal) for the 20" Fluoride Removal Filter or treat up to 22,000 gallons (11,000 ppm / 0.5ppm per gal) for the 10" Fluoride Removal Filter

|In Depth||Activated Alumina Cartridges, utilizing a fine white granular media are designed primarily to reduce fluoride levels.
Activated Alumina is currently one of the most effective method of extracting Fluoride from water..
It features Activated Alumina and is produced by a careful controlled calcination of alumina trihydrate:
Activated Alumina is made from aluminium hydroxide by dehydroxylating it in a way that produces a highly porous material. Activated Alumina is considered safe and non toxic, non-corrosive and not prone to oxidation and has been widely used and approved within the water filtration industry for many years. It is a recognised treatment media by the WQA (Water Quality Association) and British Water.
Temperature Range: 40°F (4°C) to 100°F (38°C)
Pressure Range: 25 PSI (1.7 BAR) to 100 PSI (6.9 BAR)
Filter cartridges should be changed every six to twelve months or when acceptable effluent ceases, whichever occurs first.
