Product Description :

Professionally packed standard 10" color changing single bed CATION deionization resin cartridge. Yes, this filter is 100% Cation. This filter must be used in conjuction with a mixed bed resin cartridge to ensure ZERO ppm tds. This 10" cartridge is refillable. We pack 1.25 lbs of cation resin in each cartridge. The resin color changes from a dark purple to a light brown/amber color when it is exhausting. Color changing resin is perfect for reef-keeping as this helps you to visually keep track of the quality of your water.

Typically, this filter was found only in pharmaceutical and other laboratories. Today however, CATION resin filters are found in home reverse osmosis systems for control of sodium, calcium, magnesium, aluminum, ferric iron and ferrous iron. They are also a favorite of reef keepers and salt water fish enthusiasts. This DI cartridge contains the freshest high quality resin you can purchase on the planet. We are experts at delivering on our promises since 1982! Our resin is shipped directly from the manufacturer quarterly, is kept in climate controlled environment and our di resin cartridges are professionally packed the same day they ship. You will never be disappointed with our resin, freshness is always guaranteed! 

Standard Features

This single DI Cartridge is packed with ResinTech color-indicating 8% cross-linked gel strong acid cation resin in the hydrogen form. It is dyed with a permanent purple dye that changes from purple to amber as the resin exhausts from the hydrogen to the neutral salt form. CG8-H-ID is intended for use in applications where a visual indication of cation resin exhaustion is desired.

Many manufacturing processes require high purity water for washing, rinsing and test purposes. Not all processes requiring demineralized water need the ultimate quality; however, they may require multi-megohm resistivity water. Cation CG8-H-ID is designed to provide demineralized water with a resistivity in excess of 18.3 megohm. It is specially intended for use in cartridge applications with clear (see-through) housings. In typical operation there is a safety line at the exit end of the cartridge, and when the color change reaches that level, the cartridge is considered exhausted and exchanged for a fresh cartridge. Our DI resins are rated for 6,800 ppm tds per 10" cartridge, with a minimum of 3,000 ppm holding capacity across almost all water profile types. Cation resins are positively charged and like a magnet they remove negatively charged ions present in the water (some negatively charged ions removed by CATION resin are : sodium, calcium, magnesium, aluminum, ferric iron, ferrous iron). IF you are trying to remove something specific from your water, look no further. We recommend adding this POSITIVELY charged CATION resin cartridge to remove your specific NEGATIVELY charged dissolved solids. PLEASE NOTE! If you decide to use this cation resin cartridge, we always recommend adding mixed bed DI resin cartridge after this CATION resin cartridge as you will still have positively charged dissolved solids in your water. We offer a easy add a stage option if your system is not equipt with 2 di resin stages. [ click here to see our add a stage with cation resin option ]. Additionally, we offer a triple DI resin setup with 1 x cation stage, 1 x anion stage and 1 mixed bed stage. [ click here to see our triple DI resin add on kit ]. We also offer a 5 pound bag (enough for 4 x 10" cartridge refills) [ click here! ]
