Upflow Non-Backwashing Catalytic Carbon Filter Features:

The Upflow Non-Backwashing Catalytic Carbon Filters are a simple, low cost method for treating city water to reduce chloramine taste and odor, hydrogen sulfide, and chlorine taste and odor. These upflow filters require no electricity and require no drain connections to operate. The water simply enters the tank down the center of the tank and comes up through the activated catalytic carbon media, lifting the media to prevent any channeling.

Centaur 12 x 40 is a liquid phase virgin activated coconut shell carbon that has been manufactured to develop catalytic functionality. The product is unique in that it concentrates reactants via adsorption and then promotes their reaction on the surface of the pores.

Upflow Non-Backwashing Catalytic Carbon Filter Benefits:

  • For city or municipal water applications
  • Reduces chloramine taste and odor, hydrogen sulfide, and chlorine
  • Carbon prefilter for ScaleNet systems
  • No backwash
  • Saves water
  • No electricity
