The perfect replacement media for Pyrolox, Filox and other Manganese Dioxide Media.
Katalox Light® is a revolutionary filtration media used for the removal of iron, hydrogen sulfide, manganese and sediment down to 3 microns.
Katalox-Light® is based on Zeosorb® (a high purity natural Aluminosilicate microcrystalline mineral) with a special process impregnated and then coated with MnO2 that can filter particles as small as 2-3 microns. The coating acts as a protective agent for the impregnated substance.
The Katalox Light® granules have an angular shape, rough, high micro-porous surface to filter water down to 2-3 microns. The rough surface and very high porosity provide a huge surface area for efficient reduction of dirt, silt and suspended solids.
Katalox-Light® structure features less pressure loss, high service and flow rates and high bed loadings combined with lower back wash frequency. Katalox-Light® System for Arsenic, Iron, Manganese, H2S and other metal removal is a simple system that needs no potassium permanganate (KMnO4) or chlorine.
Katalox-Light® filters can be operated at the flow rate of 12 gmp/sq. ft (30 m/h) with a single pressure vessel with and it requires only 5 - 10 minutes backwash time with the flow rate of 5.5 gpm/sq. ft (13m/h).
