Title:
FILTER MODULE FOR WATER TREATMENT APPARATUS, AND WATER TREATMENT APPARATUS COMPRISING SAID FILTER MODULE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2018/106061
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A filter module for a water treatment apparatus, and a water treatment apparatus comprising the filter module according to the present invention comprise: a plurality of evenly stacked active carbon fiber layers made of active carbon fiber; a plurality of spacers inserted between the active carbon fiber layers to prevent shorting; a pair of current collectors connected to one or the other end of the plurality of stacked active carbon fiber layers; and an active carbon fiber filter which is a stack of one or more active carbon fiber filter units, each active carbon fiber filter unit comprising a power supply means for supplying current to the active carbon fiber layers via the current collectors so that neighboring active carbon fiber layers form cathodes and anodes in alternation. Accordingly, the present invention can lower the hardness of the water while increasing ion removal capability by increasing the specific surface area and water permeability, and can minimize the thickness of the electrodes by eliminating ion exchange membranes and minimizing the volume of current collectors.
