The BMB Technology 9.5” Heavy Metal Filtration is a drinking water system that incorporates a state of the art two stage KDF + Silver GAC filter that with a unique process to reduce or remove thousands of contaminants from water including chlorine, microorganisms, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides. The bottom to top flow design of the system ensures maximum contact time with media for the highest absorption rate possible while extending the filter lifetime.
The first stage of the filter is KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion), which is an NSF certified high-purity copper and zinc media that filters contaminants in water using an oxidation/reduction (redox) process. The redox process is realised when the copper-zinc media creates an electro-chemical reaction with contaminants.
During this reaction, electrons are transferred between molecules, and new harmless elements are created. For instance free chlorine changed into benign, water-soluble chloride. Similarly, some heavy metals such as copper, lead, mercury and others, react to plate out onto the media’s surface, thus being effectively removed from the incoming water supply.
The KDF process kills bacteria, algae and fungi 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.
Some of the major contaminants that KDF removes are: chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, calcium carbonate, magnesium, heavy metals (iron, lead, mercury, chromium, etc.) and microorganisms (bacteria, algae, fungi, etc.).
The second stage of the filter is NSF Certified nano silver impregnated Coconut Shell Granule Activated Carbon (GAC). This two function media not only filters common contaminants found in drinking water but also kills bacteria and reduces taste and odor.
Coconut shell has one of the highest absorption rates in water filtration due to its ultra-high surface area and honeycomb style pores. In fact, just a single 3mm x 3mm granule of BMB Technology coconut shell carbon has an approximate surface area of 6400 m2. Certain chemicals such as chlorine get trapped in these pores and are ultimately removed from water at a very high adsorption rate.
To increase the adsorption process even further, the granules are treated with Nitrogen to make them “activated”. This will not only attract the chemicals into the pores but also make sure they stay there.
Additionally, each granule is impregnated with silver and unlike standard GAC carbon which can promote bacteria growth, the silver will not only prevent the growth of bacteria but also aid in killing them.
Some of the major contaminants that nano silver impregnated Coconut Shell GAC removes are: bacteria, chlorine, chloramine, pesticides, herbicides, nitrate, phosphate, lithium, pharmaceuticals, microplastics, arsenic, asbestos lead, zinc, copper, mercury and other heavy metals.
