KDF is a advancement in water treatment technology
KDF is a patented product and a major advancement in water treatment technology that works on basic process known as REDOX (oxidation/reduction) principles. It representing a new and unique way of water processing medium which by its natural process of electrochemical oxidation/reduction and adsorption action reduces and/or removes many unwanted contaminants from water.
It is a versatile, specially formulated high purity, bimetal material. It operates as a multifunctional medium and has superior capabilities to remove the chlorine from drinking water as well as reduces dissolved heavy metals in water supplies.
The media inhibits bacteria growth (fungi, algae and mold) and reduces lime scale throughout the entire filter. In fact, testing has shown that it reduces it up to 90%.
The media consists of a high purity copper-zinc formulation. These substances exchange electrons or bond with chlorine and other metals contained in the water to create harmless substances.
It is completely safe and meets EPA and FDA standards for levels of zinc and copper in potable water, so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects.
What is KDF?
Kinetic Degradation Fluxion is a high-purity copper-zinc formulation that uses a basic process known as redox (oxidation/reduction) to remove chlorine, lead, mercury, iron, and hydrogen sulfide from water supplies.
How does it Work?
In short, the redox process works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. This "give and take" of electrons converts many contaminants into harmless components. During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, and new elements are created. Some harmful contaminants are changed into harmless components. Others are electrochemically bound to the media.
What Contaminants Does It Remove?
The process media works to reduce or remove chlorine, iron, hydrogen sulfide, lead, mercury, calcium carbonate, magnesium, chromium, bacteria, algae, and fungi. Redox media removes up to 98% of water-soluble cations (positively-charged ions) of lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. In most cases, more than 98% of chlorine is removed if operated within recommended flow rates.
Will it remove Iron from the Water?
Redox media alloys function as catalysts to change soluble ferrous cations (positively-charged ions) into insoluble ferric hydroxide, which can be removed with regular backwashing. With enough oxygen dissolved in the water, iron removal rates of 98 percent or better are common.
How Does it Remove Chlorine from the Water?
High-purity copper-zinc redox media consistently remove 99% of free chlorine by electrochemically reducing dissolved chlorine gas to water-soluble chloride ions.
How does it Remove Hydrogen Sulfide from the Water?
When hydrogen sulfide contaminated water enters the filter, the copper in the media loses an electron and the sulfur gains an electron and copper sulfide and water are formed. The copper sulfide is insoluble in water and can be backwashed off the filter media.
Will the process media remove heavy metals such as lead from the water?
Its media removes up to 98% of water-soluble cations (positively-charged ions) of lead, mercury, copper, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals. When filtered through KDF media, soluble lead cations are reduced to insoluble lead atoms, which are electroplated onto the surface of the media. Other heavy metals bond to the media and may be recovered when the exhausted media pass through a copper smelter.
Will its process media control microorganism growth in the water filters?
It is incorporated into carbon blocks and other matrices for bacteria control and scale reduction. Treating water reduces bacteria and other microorganisms by disrupting electron transport, causing cellular damage. KDF process media also kill bacteria by direct electrochemical contact and by the flash formation of hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxide, both of which interfere with a microorganism's ability to function.
Will the KDF filter systems add any toxic substances to the water?
It is completely safe. It meets EPA and Food and Drug Administration standards for levels of zinc and copper in potable water, so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects. You may not even realize that the process media are working for you. KDF media is the core product of many filtration systems, and can be used in conjunction with other products to provide superior purification.
