The Calcite Cartridge AF-10-3231 - Aries is a replacement water filter cartridge for standard 10" water filter housings. This drinking water filter cartridge features calcite media that raises the low, or acidic, pH of your water from 5.0 to 7.0, resulting in filter media that dissolves on contact and will stop when the PH is 7.0 In addition, calcite media raises water hardness 4-5 GPG (grains per gallon). Calcite filters are ideally used in situations requiring low pH and neutralization.
pH is an indicator of the acid or alkaline condition of water. The pH scale ranges from 0-14; 7 indicates the theoretical neutral point. Neutralization cartridges act on acidic waters by slowly dissolving the calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide media as the water flows through the filter, raising the pH of the water and increasing the alkalinity. This eliminates the effects of corrosive water and can help to prevent corrosion of piping and fixtures.
The combination of Corosex® and Calcite® lessen the aggressive tendencies of acidic pH streams and their ability to leach metals from plumbing systems acidifier. Initial effluent may have a somewhat higher dissolution of product as it sits in intimate contact over time. The dissolution rate is multi-factorial and the result of water temperature, flow rate and specific water chemistry. This product is sacrificial so capacities will be specific to each application and variables mentioned above.
