Products Most advanced technology in water purification June 10, 2015 H2O International brings you the most advanced technology in water purification in South Africa The only way to ensure your tap water is completely safe to drink is to purify it with an advanced purification system. H2O has just been announced as the exclusive distributor in South Africa of the unique KDF ® Process Media, which guarantee the finest quality water and great taste by removing all the harmful, unwanted contaminants from your water. H2O’s sole distributorship status is directly as a result of our experience and extensive knowledge in applying the KDF ® Process Media technology correctly. KDF bringing customers the purist water available The full line of KDF Process Media is so unique that it is protected by 15 US patents and numerous foreign patents. This doesn’t include the patents currently pending. KDF has no direct competition because there is nothing else quite like KDF Process Media. No one else can offer the quality or all of the benefits of using KDF Process Media. How KDF 55 Process MediaWorks KDF 55 Process Medium is a high-purity copper-zinc alloy. When used in a water treatment unit, it undergoes a chemical process known as redox. Redox is short for oxidation-reduction, which is a chemical reaction where electrons are transferred between molecules. In some cases, such as free chlorine, this transfer results in the formation of benign substances, such as chloride in this case, which then passes through the filter. In a similar way, copper, lead, mercury, and other heavy metals react to plate out onto the medium’s surface effectively being removed from the water supply. KDF 55 Process Medium is so effective that it removes: • Up to 98% of inorganic water-soluble heavy metals that are a concern to many public health officials and many consumers. • In addition, KDF 55 Process Medium controls microorganisms and reduces lime scale in problem areas like showers, tubs and bottles. • KDF 55 Process Medium even changes waterborne calcium molecules that inhibit scale buildup and improves the taste of some of your favorite beverages. • Unlike carbon, KDF 55 Process Medium is truly bacteriostatic. The electrolytic field created by the redox process is an environment deadly to some microorganisms; it also creates hydroxyl radicals and hydrogen peroxides that interfere with the ability of some other microorganisms to function. The advantages of KDF Process Media KDF Process Media is used in a variety of pre treatment and primary treatment applications. It is generally used in place of, or in conjunction with, granular activated carbon filters, even carbon block or inline filters. KDF Process Media extend the life of granular activated carbon (GAC) while protecting the carbon bed against fouling by bacterial growth. Most systems use carbon to remove chlorine, but need replacing every 3 to 6 months as bacteria will grow in carbon. But, the copper zinc in KDF produces zinc oxide which inhibits bacteria growth and extends the life of the carbon up to 3 years. KDF water filter media are also used to replace silver-impregnated systems. H2O International uses the finest quality coconut shell activated carbon which works beautifully with the KDF to produce the superior quality, great tasting, purified water which H2O has become famous for. So to get the best quality and taste out of your water, look at H2O’s range of filtration systems and portable personal water bottles. They’ll keep you hydrated with a constant supply of 100% purified water 24/7 and complete peace of mind. Remember, it’s what’s inside that counts.
