The extrusion process allows the production of a carbon block with more carbon, but a lower pressure drop. This enables a +CTO/2 filter to deliver extended life while removing sediment, chlorine, taste, odor and organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. The +CTO/2 is also widely used in filtering organic solvents. The +CTO/2 is ideal for use in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service, pre and post-R0 systems.
The +CTO/2 is manufactured from high purity acid-washed activated carbon. Its dirt-holding capacity and absence of carbon fines makes the +CTO/2 the filter of choice. A superior carbon block, +CTO/2 combines both high performance and integrity with an exceptional cost-to-performance value. As a result, +CTO/2 virtually renders GAC filters obsolete by comparison.
MATRIKX® +CTO/2 filters are the most widely used carbon block devices in the world and provide previously unattainable performance at the lowest price point. +CTO/2 filters simultaneously remove free chlorine and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient 5µm nominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter.
