Matrikx P10 Carbon Filter removes chlorine taste and odor reduction. 5 Micron
KX Technologies brand.
A 10 inch spiral wound activated carbon filter cartridge used for the reduction of the bad taste and odor of chlorine as well as dirt, sediment, rust, and other impurities down to the 5 micron level. The Matrikx P10 Carbon Filter is a unique and economical composite filter, being able to filter both sediment and chlorine.
Made of activated carbon particles infused into a uniform film and supported. Using polypropylene non woven webs. Features high chlorine taste and odor reduction along with a large dirt holding capacity. Therefore used for a wide range of residential, commercial, food service, pre and post reverse osmosis, and light industrial applications.

Matrikx P10 filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, which allows for increased dirt holding capacity and a lower pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, this filter cartridge will not channel or bypass because of the uniformity of its extruded carbon medium. The filter life of the Matrikx P10 filter is extended by depth filtration through multiple layers of polypropylene spunbonded filtration medium.
Above all, a micron is short for micrometer or one millionth of a meter. Now that’s a very tiny unit of measure!
The micron rating refers to the distance between pieces of filter media.
This determines the size of particles that the filter will allow to pass through.
In other words the lower the micron level of a filter, the more contaminants it can catch and purify from your water..
