Chlorine Taste & Odor Reduction Filter



  • 5μm Nominal Filtration*
  • High Adsorptive Capacity and Efficiency*
  • Efficient Sediment Filter*
  • Outstanding Chlorine Taste and Odor Reduction*



MATRIKX® CTO® filters are the most recognized carbon block devices in the world and provide previously unattainable performance. MATRIKX® CTO® filters simultaneously remove chlorine taste and odor and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while providing the particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an effcient 5 μm nominal sediment filter. These filters are optimized for applications where they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter.

*Based on Manufacturer's Internal Testing

KX®’s proprietary extrusion process allows the production of a carbon block with more carbon, but a lower pressure drop. This enables a MATRIKX® CTO® filter to deliver extended life while removing sediment, chlorine taste and odor and organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions. The MATRIKX® CTO® can be used for filtering organic solvents. The MATRIKX® CTO® is ideal for use in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service, pre- and post-RO systems. The MATRIKX® CTO® is manufactured from high purity activated carbon. Its dirt-holding capacity and the absence of carbon fines makes the MATRIKX® CTO® the filter of choice. A superior carbon block, MATRIKX® CTO® combines both high performance and integrity with an exceptional cost-to-performance value. As a result, MATRIKX® CTO® virtually renders GAC filters obsolete by comparision.



MATRIKX® CTO® filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and eficiency. MATRIKX® CTO® filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt-holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, MATRIKX® CTO® cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the MATRIKX® CTO® filter is greatly extended by a prefiltration medium.

  • No channeling
  • No fluidizing
  • No bypassing
  • Lowest extractables, pure materials of construction
  • Maximum service life and resistance to fouling
  • Graded density prefiltration design
  • Manufactured using FDA-compliant materials
  • Color coded molded one-piece gasket and end cap

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Performance claims are based on a complete system, including a filter, housing, and connection to a pressurized water source. This filter must be placed in an appropriate system, and operated according to the system's specifications in order to deliver the claimed performance. It is essential to follow operational, maintenance, and filter replacement requirements, as directed for each application, for this filter and system to perform correctly. Read the Manufacturer's Performance Data Sheet accompanying the system and change the filter as suggested. The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by this water filter are not necessarily in all users' water.




1. Projected chlorine taste and odor reduction capacity when tested in accordance with NSF/ANSI Standard 42 protocol.
2. Nominal particulate rating (5μm) is for >85% of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting results.*
* Nominal Filter Rating: Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle, the majority of which will not pass through the filter. It is generally interpreted as meaning that 85% of the particles of the size equal to the nominal micron rating will be retained by the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).



MATRIKX® filters are not to be autoclaved or steam-sterilized. Use this MATRIKX® CTO® carbon filter only with microbiologically safe and adequately disinfected water, as it is not designed to kill or remove bacteria or viruses. Actual results obtained will vary with various combinations of organic contaminants, changes in pH or other conditions encountered in actual use. All information presented here is based on data believed to be reliable. It is offered for evaluation and verification, but is not to be considered a warranty of any kind.

MATRIKX® filters are designed to fit most standard household and commercial or industrial housings. This cartridge must be placed in an appropriate housing and flushed for a minimum of 5 minutes prior to use.
