AMI Activated Carbon (GAC) filters with Automatic Backwash
To Remove Chlorine, Taste and Odor for Whole-House or Commercial Water Filtration

AMI Activated Carbon (GAC) filters are used to reduce chlorine, organics, color, tannin, objectionable tastes and odors, and dissolved organic chemicals from municipal and industrial water supplies. Automatic backwashing system removes the trapped contaminants within the filter bed and washes them down the drain. Carbon filtration significantly reduces the following contaminants:

  • Chlorine & Chlorine By-Products such as Trihalomethanes (THMs)
  • Bad Tastes and Odors
  • Turbidity
  • Herbicides, Pesticides & Insecticides
  • Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs).

One of the most common applications for activated carbon filters is the reduction of the undesirable tastes and odors present in many chlorinated water supplies. Activated carbon has been successful for many years in the reduction of free chlorine from water supplies. The end product is clean, fresh water with no objectionable taste or odor characteristics. Carbon Backwash Filters are effective in a wide range of applications ranging from pre-treatment for other water purification systems to use as individual treatment equipment for the removal of specific impurities.

Benefits and Features of Carbon Backwash Filters

  • Our Whole-House Carbon Systems Significantly Reduce the Following Contaminants Chlorine
    • Chlorine By-Products - Trihalomethanes (THMs): A Group of organic chemicals, suspected of being carcinogenic.
    • Bad Tastes & Odors
    • Turbidity (Cloudy Water)
    • Herbicides, Pesticides, & Insecticides
    • Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs): Organic Chemicals that turn into vapor.
  • Automatic Backwash Feature Reduces Maintenance, Maintains Filter Efficiency, and Prolongs the Life of the Filtration Media
  • High quality liquid phase bituminous coal base carbon meets ANSI/NSF Standard 61 and Food Chemicals Codex Standards for drinking water applications. (Carbon filters using California Prop. 65 tested coconut shell carbon for CA drinking water applications are available upon request.)
  • Fully automated with state of the art electronic control valve featuring:
    • Solid state microprocessor with easy access front panel settings
    • Front panel display with time of day & gallons until next backwash (21+” dia. units also display current flow rate, and total volume used)
    • Days override feature; 1-28 days available
    • Coin Cell Lithium battery back-up with 8 hour carry over
    • Stores system configuration and operation data in nonvolatile memory
    • 12-volt output AC Adapter provides safe and easy installation (20-volt output for 42” & 48”dia. units)
  • High quality FRP/Composite Resin Tank, rated at 150 psi maximum operating pressure and 120°F maximum operating temperature. (Optional stainless steel jackets are available for 9”-16” diameter tanks upon request.)
  • Made in the USABackwash: Time Clock Delayed (Metered, pressure-differential and PLC-controlled options are available upon request.)
  • Made in the USA in Applied Membranes ISO 9001:2008 Certified Facilities

Ordering Notes:

  • Carbon Filters are available with USA or European style plugs and voltages. Please add the appropriate voltage code to the end of the model when ordering.
    • 120V AC/60Hz with USA cord = US
    • Example: W-G744ET-US
    • European 220V AC = EU (EU plug is removable to convert into universal 220v cord)
  • 5 gpm per sq. ft. of media is the best design condition for filtration. For relatively clean water, you may go up to design criteria of 15 gpm per sq. ft. Backwash flow rate based on 25 psi pressure drop.
  • Skid mounting, control panel and custom sizes and configurations are available upon request. AMI Auto Backwash Carbon Filters are offered standard with new state of the art electronic programmable valves, but may be ordered with electromechanical Fleck valve heads upon request.
