Introduction

Media Description

High content(10%) gamma Manganese dioxide (MnO2) coated ZEOSORB

 

Katalox-Light® Removal methods:

1. Mechanical Filtration (fine particles, TSS, Turbidity etc.)
2. Catalytic precipitation and sorption (Fe, Mn, Cu, Pb etc.)
3. Adsorbtion (flocculant formation and adsorption of As, Heavy Metals, Radionuclides)

 

Filtration (≤ 3 µm) of:

♦ Total Suspended Solids
♦ Sediments
♦ Turbidity
♦ Organics
♦ Colour (some, organic)
♦ Odour

Removal of:

♦ Iron (Inlet conc. up to. 100 mg/L)
♦ Manganese (Inlet conc. up to 20 mg/L)
♦ Arsenic
♦ Hydrogen sulfide
♦ Uranium, Radium
♦ Heavy Metals
♦ Radionuclide

Best features:

♦ WQA Certified to meet ANSI/NSF 61 standard for Drinking Water applications
♦ Very high surface area
♦ High MnO2 coating (10%)
♦ Contains NO crystalline Silica
♦ No mandatory dosing required
♦ Light weight media - saves backwash water
♦ Replacement frequency every 7-10 years

 

 

System Calculator

  • This calculator has been designed based on real data obtained from real systems.
  • The contamination concentration and the filtration rate is best-fit approximation and is subject to be updated.
  • Maximum contamination range for Fe is 70 mg/L and for Mn is 25 mg/L

Feature

Breakthrough in Iron

Removal Technology!



Real installations from different part of the world have been reported to remove unchallenged amounts of iron. In a few extreme cases multi-stage Katalox-Light filtration systems have been used without the use of any chemicals to remove iron with inlet concentration of as high as 60 - 100 mg/L (ppm).

These astounding findings are being further investigated to find the co-rrelations between removal limit and underlying ORP, pH and other possible governing characteristics.

Why Katalox-Light is

"The Best" compared to other products in the market?



Much higher gamma Manganese coating (10%) for better filtration, more service life, while keeping the bulk density close to the density of water 1000 kg/m³ (Katalox-Light Bulk Density: 1060 kg/m³) .

Heavier the media requires higher backwash rates and extra pumps (Energy) to backwash. Velocity of 60 - 98 m/h (25 – 40 gpm/ft²) Backwash and rinse rate is normal for Heavier medias.
