FILTER-OX, Filter-Ox Media, 0.5 CU FT Bag, A8045
Filter-Ox is a highly effective filter media capable of reducing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from water through oxidation and filtration. Soluble iron and manganese are oxidized and precipitated by contact with the catalytic coating on the Filter-Ox granules. The hydrogen sulfide is oxidized to an insoluble sulfur precipitate. Precipitates are then filtered and removed by backwashing.
Filter-Ox is an engineered media that utilizes a super high purity manganese dioxide coating bonded to a durable, lightweight silica substrate. Manganese dioxide is a powerful oxidizer and Filter-Ox contains more manganese dioxide than other manganese based filter medias. Manufactured in the USA, Filter-Ox contains almost no fines and does not require long initial backwash times. A standard sterilization treatment using chlorine is all that is needed at start up.
Untreated water should periodically be monitored for raw water parameters. Treated water should periodically be monitored for manganese, iron and hydrogen sulfide shortly before a regeneration and immediately after a regeneration to monitor how the filter system is functioning. Elevated treated water concentrations before regeneration may mean that the filter media reduction capacity has been exceeded. Take corrective actions as necessary.
Low pH or high pH are the most likely conditions leading to media destruction.
