Features & Information

Highly porous, lightweight, clean and tight microporous structure effective at reducing chlorine, taste and odour contaminants.


What is chlorine, taste and odour?

Refers to the distinctive flavour and smell associated with chlorine in water. Chlorine is commonly used as a disinfectant in water treatment processes to kill bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms. While chlorine is effective in reducing waterborne pathogens it can leave a residual taste (often described as a bleach-like or chemical flavour) and odour in the treated water.

Why do I need to remove chlorine?

Removing chlorine from water is often desired for several reasons:


  • Taste and Odour: chlorine causes an unpleasant taste and odour in water.
  • Beverage and Food Quality: natural flavours and characteristics are compromised by the presence of chlorine, specifically yeast.
  • Cosmetic and Aesthetics: Chlorine can strip the natural oils from the skin and hair, leading to dryness and potential damage.
  • Disinfection Byproducts: Chlorine can react with naturally occurring organic matter in water, forming disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethane and halo-acetic acids. Long-term exposure has been associated with potential health risks, such as cancer.
What is the SCB Coconut Carbon Filter, and what are its primary applications?

The SCB Coconut Carbon Filter is a filtration medium widely used and preferred for drinking water treatment and beverage production, particularly in situations where chloramines are not present.

How does the SCB filter differ to other carbon filters?

The SCB filter is designed to offer improved flow rate and lower pressure drop compared to some other carbon filters. This can lead to a reduction in the size of the required filtration housing.
