KDF (Kinetic Degradation Fluxion) 55 is a patented product representing a new and unique way of water processing medium which by its natural process of electrochemical oxidation/reduction and absorption action reduces and/or removes many unwanted contaminants from water.
KDF 55 medium is a versatile, specially formulated high purity, bimetal material. This product operates as a multifunctional medium which has superior capabilities of dechlorination of drinking water and reduces dissolved heavy metals in water supplies. The dechlorination capacity of KDF 55 medium exceeds that of an equal quantity of activated carbon by over ten-fold.
KDF 55 medium has the ability to control bacteria, fungi, algae and mold.
Patented KDF media consists of a high purity copper-zinc formulation. These substances exchange electrons or bond with chlorine and other metals contained in the water to create harmless substances.
Through this basic process known as redox (oxidation/reduction), KDF works behind the scenes to rid your water of chlorine, lead, mercury, iron and hydrogen sulfide. The redox reaction also inhibits the growth of bacteria, algae and fungi. As an added benefit, KDF reduces lime scale, mold and fungi.
KDF is completely safe and meets EPA and FDA standards for levels of zinc and copper in potable water, so the process is not toxic and does not cause any adverse side effects.
