What is KDF?

Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) uses a process called redox, or oxidation reduction, to remove various chemicals from water. It has a very high concentration of copper-zinc and effectively removes chlorine, lead, mercury, iron and other contaminants. It also eliminates fungi, parasites and bacteria from water. KDF is often combined with other technologies to enhance their effectiveness in removing heavy metals, chlorine, and other chemicals.

How does KDF work?

KDF works by exchanging electrons with contaminants. A potentially damaging free radical or contaminant can be rendered harmless by losing or gaining electrons.

What are some applications for KDF filters?

KDF filters are often used in conjunction with activated carbon filters for the treatment of water. KDF complements carbon filters by removing chlorine and heavy metals, areas where carbon filters lack effectiveness. KDF filters are used with shower filters, water ionizers, water treatment units, and more.

What can KDF remove?

  • Chlorine
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Magnesium
  • Chromium
  • Iron
  • Bacteria
  • Algae
  • Fungi
  • Copper
  • Nickel

How are KDF filters maintained?

Typical KDF filters last between 6 – 12 months. Once they are used for this time period, they should simply be replaced and removed.
