KDF_081002.jpg

KDF Process Media from KDF Fluid Treatment Inc. are now antimicrobial.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently approved copper alloys as antimicrobial, making the copper and zinc-based KDF Process Media antimicrobial as well.  The EPA approved the registration after laboratory tests confirmed that copper alloys eliminate more than 99.9% of bacterial contamination within two hours of exposure.  

KDF offers two product lines, KDF 55 Process Medium and KDF 85 Process Medium, of high-purity, granulated copper and zinc-based alloys for water pretreatment, primary treatment and wastewater applications to extend system life, lower total cost, decrease maintenance and reduce heavy metals, microorganisms and scale.  KDF media can remove up to 99% of water-soluble lead, mercury, nickel, chromium, and other dissolved metals.  Effective in controlling buildup of bacteria, algae, fungi and scale, these media are ideal for GAC beds, ion exchange resins, carbon block filters and inline carbon filters.  KDF media are used for both for Point-of-Entry (POE) and Point-of-Use (POU) water treatment systems.
