Nitrate Water Filters

UPDATE: Nitrate Removal from Water

Nitrate Water Filters utilize white bead anion resin to remove nitrates from water. In most cases, it’s practical that the levels of Nitrate should not exceed 10 mg/L. When calculating capacity, to determine which type of Nitrate Water Filters is needed, competing ions should be accounted for.

A Technical Data Sheet

The EPA limit on nitrates in potable water supplies is 10 ppm as N, or 44.3 ppm as NO3, or 35.7 ppm as aCO3.

When operated in the chloride cycle (sodium chloride regeneration), the resin will not exchange for CO2 or silica. Recommended service flow rate is 3 to 5 gpm/cu.ft.
