AMI Activated Carbon (GAC) filters are used to reduce chlorine, organics, color, tannin, objectionable tastes and odors, and dissolved organic chemicals from municipal and industrial water supplies. Automatic backwashing system removes the trapped contaminants within the filter bed and washes them down the drain. Carbon filtration significantly reduces the following contaminants:

  • Chlorine & Chlorine By-Products such as Trihalomethanes (THMs)
  • Bad Tastes and Odors
  • Turbidity
  • Herbicides, Pesticides & Insecticides
  • Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs).

One of the most common applications for activated carbon filters is the reduction of the undesirable tastes and odors present in many chlorinated water supplies. Activated carbon has been successful for many years in the reduction of free chlorine from water supplies. The end product is clean, fresh water with no objectionable taste or odor characteristics. Carbon Backwash Filters are effective in a wide range of applications ranging from pre-treatment for other water purification systems to use as individual treatment equipment for the removal of specific impurities.
