Features and Benefits

1) No release of carbon fines:

Extruded filter elements do not release activated carbon particles ("gray water") during startup or operation. Extensive flushing or "activation" of extruded filter elements are not required. Some GAC carbon filters will release carbon fines even after the filter elements have been in service for an extended period of time, resulting in contaminated sumps and plumbing and a non-sanitary condition.

2) No channeling, fluidizing, or bypassing:
Extruded filter elements cannot channel, bypass, or fluidize because extruded carbon is a rigid structure that prevents movement of the adsorbent particles or the formation of channels and defects in the adsorbent structure. GAC filters consist of loose beds of particles that are often loosely packed into a non-rigid plastic tube (you can often hear the particles move when GAC filters are shaken). Bypass of the carbon is common because the plastic container often expands away from the carbon when under pressure, leaving a sorbent-free zone. At sufficient flow, the entire bed will fluidize and the integrity of the adsorbent bed will be lost. GAC filters cannot be operated in a horizontal arrangement beacause the carbon will settle, leaving an open channel along the top of the filter.

3) Low pressure drop:

Water flows through an extruded filter element in the "radial" direction (from the outside of the filter element to the inside). As a result, the entire exterior surface of the filter is presented to the incoming fluid, not just off one edge of the filter as in most GAC filters. This results in nearly fifteen times more prefiltration surface area and a much lower flow "density". In a GAC filter, a fluid flows at high velocity through the entire length of the filter, often about eight (8) inches of carbon. In an extruded filter element, the fluid flows slowly through only the thickness of the filter's wall; often less than an inch. While the contact time between the fluid and carbon are basically identical in both cases, the extruded element displays almost ten times less pressure drop when the adsorbent particles are the same size. Together, these two effects results in a total reduction of pressure drop of almost 100-200 fold so that an extruded carbon filter manufactured with fine powdered carbon will display esssentially the same pressure drop at a given fluid flow as a GAC filter filled with coarse particles of activated carbon. The ability to use powdered activated carbon significantly enhances the performance of the extruded carbon in comparison to that of the GAC filter--without the anticipated pressure drop penalty.

4) Low binder content and high dirt capacity:

One of the challenges of producing high-quality solid activated carbon block is to produce a
material of great physical strength, that is entirely free of attrition and media migration; that
retains nearly the full capacity of the original activated carbon; and displays the best possible dirt holding capacity and low pressure drop. Today, extruded carbon stands alone in providing all of these desirable features. This is made possible because only a small amount of thermoplastic binder is used in the extrusion process--about one-half of what is used in a molded carbon block.
A low binder content results in low carbon fouling (essentially negligible). In addition, the
reduction in the amount of binder maximizes the porosity of the extrusion, resulting in the
lowest possible flow resistance and the greatest dirt holding capacity. Extruded carbons have
2-4 times more dirt capacity than conventional molded carbon blocks and often do not require
protection by a prefilter. KXT may provide a layer of prefiltration media to achieve a "graded
pore density" exterior surface. Any layer(s) are computer matched to provide the best possible
prefiltration of the incoming fluid.

5) "Blowout" of GAC is eliminated with extruded carbon filter elements:

Extruded activated carbonfilter elements are structurally rigid and of great strength. If the filter
element is clogged by particulate contamination, the carbon cannot be released to the
downstream water. Extruded filters can withstand higher levels of pressure than most GAC filters,without collapsing. In some cases, clogged GAC filters can "blowout" and release activated carbon into the product water.

6) Extruded carbon's cost/performance ratio "the best in the industry":
MATRIKX® extruded filter elements will outperform conventional GAC filters in almost every
application because of the higher adsorbent capacity and contaminant reduction, low pressure
drop, high dirt capacity, elimination of carbon fines, higher integrity and strength, and overall
ability to produce the highest possible effluent quality. All of these high-quality attributes are
achieved by a process that is more automated and productive than any other solid carbon
manufacturing process.

7) Composite particles - the secret to great performance:
One of the unique features of the extrusion process is its ability to bond one or more layers of
small particles onto a larger surface. For example, 80x325 mesh particles of one activated carbon can be bonded to the surface of 20x50 mesh particles of a second activated carbon. This is a major breakthrough and benefit, allowing KXT to manufacture filter elements that are capable of performing in entirely new ways. For example:
* Silver impregnated carbon particles can be bound to larger carbon particles to produce
effective bateriostatic filter media.
The ability to form complex composite mixtures of particles and extrude these into stable solid
adsorbent forms provides a virtually limitless potential for the development of high performance
water and air filtration products. Such process flexibility is unique to the extrusion process that has been developed and patented by KX Technologies LLC.

The performance and technical benefits of extruded carbon are made possible by the
fundamental ability of the extrusion process to produce an incredibly uniform, reproducible, and reliable adsorbent structure. To produce the highest quality finished filter element, additional assembly technology is required. KXT operates a modern fully-automated filter assembly plant utilizing both robotic and automatic systems for the flexible manufacture of complete filters.These assembly systems are developed and supported by in-house automation and design engineers and nearly 90% of these systems are manufactured by KXT to meet its specific requirements.

WHAT IS EXTRUDED CARBON BLOCK?

Extruded activated carbon filters consist of virgin activated carbon powder, a thermoplastic binder, and specialty adsorbents such as zeolites or oxidizing filtration media. The filters are manufactured as continuous lengths of rod, tube, slab, flexible flat sheet, or as other complex
shapes using a proprietary solid-state extrusion process. The resulting products are highly porous and extremely uniform, providing  high-performance adsorption and particulate reduction at low flow resistance when fabricated into finished filter elements. Standard consumer and commercial filters manufactured by continuous solid-state extrusion cost approximately the same as conventional filters manufactured using loose granular activated carbon, but provide an enormous spectrum of performance advantages. Extruded activated carbon filters meet exacting performance requirements and/or claims, and specific models are registered as meeting the requirements of NSF/ANSI for VOCs and THMs
reduction, particulate, cyst, turbidity, lead reduction, chlorine taste and odor reduction, and other requirements relating to purity and safety of their materials of construction.
