SKU: FCPRA-5 Category:


ACR-1 series utilizes FDA-grade, sodium, based, strongly acidic ion-exchange resin which reduces calcium and magnesium ion content in water. Calcium and magnesium are often called “hardness minerals”. Large amounts of these ions in water are responsible for the formation of scale deposits, higher detergent consumption and stains on glassware. In extreme cases large amounts of calcium and magnesium can lead to glass etching. Hard water damages home appliances such as: dishwashers and washing machines, and increases their energy consumption.


Aquafilter offers FCPRA cartridges (FCPRA-5 and FCPRA-10) suitable for POE (Point of Entry) installations. Through its polyphosphate media, FCPRA cartridges provide a strong inhibition against scaling processes in which calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese are involved. By preventing the scale deposition of many compounds, FCPRA extends the service life of your water pipes, boilers and heating elements, enhancing an efficient and clean supply of your drinking water.
