ACTIVATED CARBON FILTRATION
Aqua-Chem Carbon Towers are part of the pre-treatment process which removes chlorine or chloramine before the water enters into a reverse osmosis membrane or vapor compression distiller. Carbon Towers are available individually or as part of a complete water treatment solution such as an Aqua-Chem water room. Aqua-Chem Carbon Towers are designed specifically for your application and use only NSF 61 approved materials to prevent leaching. When it comes to daily operations, maintenance, and cleaning, Aqua-Chem’s smart design stands-out with multiple features that make these infrequent, but necessary tasks easier and faster. Depending on your water quality requirements and a complete feed water analysis, Aqua-Chem can design a carbon tower filter to meet your needs.
