CP77 Use Information

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
  • Composition: Specially Blended Anti-Scale & Corrosion Granules
  • Size: Various sizes of each blended material, 0.3 mm up to 10 mm
  • Color: Various, blended granules of black, purple, red, white, green and amber
  • Packaging: Various, depending on order size, filters/cartridges and bulk from 10 gallons to 55 gallons
  • Bulk Density: 1.22 Kg/L; 10.2 lb/gallon; 76 lb/cu.ft.
  • Moisture Content: approx. < 2%

WATER CHEMISTRY & LIMITATIONS

  • pH range of incoming water: 6.5 to 9.5
  • Hardness: 75 Grains (1,300 ppm CaCO3)
  • Temperature: 40 to 145 °F (4 to 70°C)
  • Chlorine: no limit; CP77 is resistant to chlorine and chloramine and heavy metals
  • Iron, Ferrous: up to 1 mg/L (other equipment may require iron removal)
  • Manganese: up to 0.5 mg/L (other equipment may require iron removal)
  • Copper: ≤ 1.3 mg/L (USEPA Primary Drinking Water Regulations Action Level; > 1.3 mg/L requires pretreatment)
  • Fats, Oil and Grease FOG): remove prior to use of CP77.
  • H2S (hydrogen sulfide): < 0.2 mg/L (odor threshold of H2S is approx. 0.2 mg/L)
OPERATING CONDITIONS
  • Service Flow Rate: 1 GPM per 500 mL of CP77.
  • Bed Depth: 2-4 inches (10.2 – 20.4 centimeters) in most applications
  • Freeboard: 25% of bed depth (Max.); Recommended 1 GPM flow rate for a 2.5 in diameter cartridge containing approximately 200 mL (244 grams) of CP77, per 2.5-inch bed depth (Flow Velocity, FV, of 0.2 inches per second – FV = Volumetric Flow Rate/Surface Area)
  • For continuous or intermittent flow (no “caking” of media during none-flow periods)
  • Operation in Up flow mode provides for self- cleaning action of CP77 media.
  • No pretreatment (sediment or carbon block) is necessary in city water applications. It is recommended if available.
