Aries FilterWorks Calcor Neutralization Cartridges are designed with a propriety blend of Corosex and Calcite. The basic benefit of using Corosex is that it dissolves much faster than Calcite. If the initial pH is less than 6.0, Calcite alone does not dissolve fast enough to correct pH to neutral. Blending the products, allows the pH to be corrected over a more effective range. Aries Calcor Cartridge specific blend helps to create a balanced product that will deliver a natural effluent without the negative impact of over correction.
Commercial Use - Water can behave in a corrosive manner, which is a problem that needs to be considered during water treatment. Aries Calcor cartridges can be used to polish RO effluents and mineralize the product stream back to a balanced and healthy pH.
Residential Use - If your water has a pH of < 7.0 it is considered acidic and it should be treated. With respect to the corrosion potential of drinking water, the primary concerns include the potential presence of toxic metals as well as deterioration and damage to the household plumbing. The pretreatment system typically used in applications for homeowners or small private water supplies should include a neutralizing filter.
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.
