Kolar Labs premium catalytic carbon is made by Calgon Carbon specifically for chlorine, chloramine and hydrogen sulfide removal. It is a special catalytic activated carbon that quickly and effectively eliminates challenging contaminants in tap water that cannot be removed by standard activated carbons. Chloramine is growing in popularity as a disinfectant in many municipal water systems, and is not removed by traditional activated carbons or activated charcoals. Chloramine is extremely toxic to fish and aquatic life and it degrades reverse osmosis membranes resulting in decreased RO system performance and membrane lifetime.
Our manufacturing process modifies the carbon’s surface electronic structure to create catalytic performance without harmful metals or alkalis used in other catalytic carbons. The production process is phosphate-free, to eliminate the potential for phosphate release from the carbon. The result is a fast-acting, laboratory grade carbon with high catalytic activity and low metal content that can be safely used in all applications, from tap water prefilters for RO systems to aquariums to remove chloramine and challenging organic contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and trihalomethanes (THMs).
Use Kolar Labs premium catalytic carbon to remove chlorine and chloramine to keep your RO system performing optimally. It is a high purity, food grade activated carbon that is safe for all freshwater and marine fish, invertebrates, plants, and pets.
