Some typical chlorine compounds are liquid chlorine, chlorine dioxide gas, hypochlorites, inorganic chloramines
and organic chloramines
(4,5.6) Functionally, it is associated with the protection of tissues from damage resulting from inflammatory reactions, via a reaction with HOCl/[OCl.sub.-] to form taurine chloramines
, which confers cellular protection via the regulation of pro-inflammatory mediators, including TNF-alpha and NF-Kappa B.
Water with a pH higher than 8.5 with chloramines
present will cause the carbon to be less effective at removing chlorine and chloramine
, and cause the RO membrane performance to degrade, resulting in poor water quality (Luehmann, Keshaviah, Ward, Klein, & Thomas, 1989).
It has excellent corrosion resistance to chlorine, chloramines
and chlorine dioxide, which are used to clean water systems.
Chlorine disinfection byproducts such as chloroform and chloramines
are formed when chlorine, the most commonly used disinfectant in aquatic venues (e.g., pools), reacts with other chemicals in the water.
, which off-gas into pool space air, corrode building materials, irritate skin and eyes, and are a known respiratory health hazard for swimmers, lifeguards, and other pool occupants.
Some mainly remove chlorine, while others also remove chloramines
, disinfection byproducts, pesticides, industrial pollutants, and lead.
Whole house and Point-of-Use carbon based filtration systems are a common and effective way of removing contaminants such as Chlorine, Chloramines
, TCE, Trihalomethanes, and improving taste and odor while leaving essential minerals intact.
