Chloramines, (also known as monochloramines ) is chlorine combined with ammonia. The chemical has become a popular alternative to free chlorine for water treatment, because it has less odour.
The Pentek ChlorPlus-10BB Chloramine Water Filter Cartridge is a 4.5″ x 10″ Carbon Block 1 Micron Water Filter cartridge which will fit most standard broad-bodied/jumbo 10″ housings. The filter is designed to remove chloramines from drinking water in high flow and whole house applications. ChlorPlus Water Filter is a premium, high capacity Chloramine, Taste and Odour reduction cartridge that also reduces chlorine and sediment.
The ChlorPlus in its block configuration, meeting NSF/ANSI Standard 42, reduces chloramine levels to below the guideline 0.1 ppm from a 1 ppm feed for over 26,000 litres. As a pre-filter in renal applications, these cartridges are the perfect choice for extending membrane life, primarily due to the absence of carbon fines, which are a common by-product of granular carbons.
