Alkalinity is a measure of the capacity of water to neutralize acids. Alkalinity is primarily due to the presence of bicarbonate, carbonate, and hydroxide ions. Alkalinity acts as a pH buffer to deactivate acidity. Water with high alkalinity may have an offensive taste. These filters are tanks filled with a media blend of calcium and magnesium carbonates made from naturally occurring minerals. This media slowly dissolves into the water, raising the pH and making it less corrosive. One of the most important benefits of alkaline water (besides increasing the pH) is that it lowers Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). Read more here.
Poly spun-bonded filter cartridges are manufactured from pure 100% polypropylene fibers. These cartridges will not impart taste, odor or color into the water. For industrial applications, polypropylene offers superior chemical resistance and is not prone to bacterial attack. Cartridges are available in different ranges of micron sizes.
