KX Industries MATRIKX® CTO® Extruded Activated Carbon Block Filter:
Chlorine Taste & Odor Reduction Filter

KX MATRIKX CTO filters are the most widely used carbon block devices in the world and provide previously unattainable performance at the lowest price point. MATRIKX CTO filters simultaneously remove chlorine taste and odor and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient 5 micron nominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter.

KX's proprietary extrusion process allows the production of carbon block with more carbon, but a lo9wer pressure drop. This enables a MATRIKX CTO filter to deliver extended life while removing sediment, chlorine taste and odor and organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. The MATRIKX CTO is also widely used in filtering organic solvents. The MATRIKX CTO is ideal for use in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service, pre- and post-RO systems.

The MATRIKX CTO is manufactured from high purity acid-washed activated carbon. Its dirt-holding capacity and the absence of carbon files makes the MATRIKX CTO the filter of choice.

Adavantages of Carbon Block vs. GAC Carbon

MATRIKX+ 5 filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency. MATRIKX and flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt-holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, MATRIKX + 5 cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the MATRIKX + 5 filter is greatly extended by a prefiltration medium.
