Water filtration media commonly used in water purifiers


KDF is a high-purity copper-zinc alloy, a new type of water filtration medium invented by Dr. Don Heskett in 1984 in the United States. The principle of water purification is based on redox reactions, where the KDF medium exchanges electrons with pollutants, transforming many contaminants into harmless substances. KDF particles are particularly effective in removing chlorine and water-soluble heavy metals from water. They can effectively remove chlorine, organic compounds, heavy metals, and prevent the formation of carcinogenic substances like trihalomethanes, making the water safe and potable.
KDF material has a strong reactivity and extremely fast reaction speed in water, capable of eliminating up to 99% of chlorine and dissolved metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, and chromium ions and compounds. It is also highly effective in inhibiting the growth of bacteria, fungi, algae, and scale. It is used in pretreatment, primary treatment, and wastewater treatment equipment. KDF can enhance or replace existing technologies, significantly extending system life, reducing heavy metals, microorganisms, and scale, lowering overall costs, and simplifying system maintenance—hence it is known as “water gold.”

2. Amino acid scale inhibitor

Yucheng Technology’s Anti-scaling pre-filter and Aroma Shower Filter use an amino acid scale inhibitor, which is primarily made from malic acid extracted from crushed fruit peels and other natural sources. This food-grade particulate material is synthesized through pharmaceutical processes and slowly releases effective scale-inhibiting factors upon contact with water. These factors combine with calcium and magnesium ions, neutralizing their charge so that they no longer attract carbonate ions, thereby reducing the formation of scale.

3.Calcium sulfite

Calcium sulfite balls are primarily used to remove residual chlorine from water. They can eliminate 99% of residual chlorine in just 0.8 seconds. Compared to traditional activated carbon for chlorine removal, calcium sulfite offers advantages such as high efficiency, safety, high-temperature resistance, and does not promote bacterial growth. Made from natural materials like calcium sulfite through a special proportioning of characteristics and fired with a rapid process, these balls are a high-tech water treatment product that combines biological and physical science technologies. They can instantly and effectively remove residual chlorine from water, purifying and mineralizing the water quality.
