Contaminant Reduction

What contaminants are reduced using LINX?

Internal test data and reports from others who have evaluated LINX products indicate the following performance.

This is for information only and not for making “claims” as defined by the certification agencies.

Contaminant% Reduction – LINX test data performance%  Removal – Typical ROComments
Aluminum 95 98-99  
Ammonia 98 86-92  
Arsenic III 85    
Arsenic V 93    
Barium 99 96-98  
Bacteria 99.9   2 log reduction from LINX technology plus 1 log additional from the optional UV
Bicarbonate 87 90-95  
Borate 70 30-50  
Bromide >95 87-93  
Cadmium 99 96-98  
Calcium 94 94-97  
Chloramine 40    
Chloride 92 87-93  
Chlorine –hypochlorite 80 13-91 RO removes with pre-carbon or it will damage the membrane
Chromium III >90 96-98  
Chromium VI Chromate 99 90  
Copper 99 96-98  
Cyanide 98 86-92  
Ferrocyanide >98 98-99  
Fluoride 92 87-93  
Iron 90 95-98  
Iodine >95    
Lead 99 96-98 At low pH (6.5)
Magnesium 92 96-98  
Manganese >95 95-98  
Mercury >98 96-98 at low pH (6.5)
Monochloroacetic Acid 80    
Nickel 98 98-99  
Nitrate 99 60-75 91% in the LINX 140 and 140T at Minimum Settings
Nitrite 99   92% in the LINX 140 and 140T at Minimum Settings
Pathogens No data available    
Perchlorate 96    
Pesticides     Somewhat, but only weak acids, bases and ionic species
Phosphate >95 98-99  
Potassium 94 87-94  
Pyrogens     No data available
Radon     No – Radon is a noble gas
Sediment     5 micron sediment filter is very effective for sediment reduction
Selenium 99 >95  
Silver >98 93-96  
Sodium <94 87-93  
Strontium 99 96-98  
Sulfate >95 98-99  
Sulfite >95 96-98  
Thiosulfate >95 98-99  
Viruses     2 log reduction from LINX technology plus 1 log from the UV
Uranium Uranyl >95    
VOCs     Carbon filter reduces VOCs
Zinc >98 98-99  

Italics indicate estimated performance from ion exchange selectivity information.

Actual performance will depend on the power setting and flow rate. Reducing the flow rate will increase contaminant reduction due to increased contact time.
