Aries FilterWorks Carbon/Phosphate combination cartridges use carbon to effectively improve taste and odor by removing chlorine and phosphate to reduce scale buildup. This combination of Premium GAC carbon and phosphate dramatically improves the quality of drinking water, as well as its ability to protect metal parts from corrosion when used in certain industries.
Activated carbon has remarkable cleaning and absorptive properties, which makes it an effective way to clean water. Carbon is effective in removing chlorine, sediment and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The Carbon particles have a large surface area, allowing a small amount of carbon to efficiently filter large amounts of water. As water passes through the carbon filter many chemicals and contaminants in the water are bonded at a molecular level to the carbon, effectively removing them from the water. A large percentage of chemical compounds and organic contaminants, that cause taste and odor problems are removed by carbon.
