LayneRT media for the removal of arsenic from water supplies.
Media is rated for 3.75 GPM continual service flow and 7.5 GPM peak flow rate per cubic foot
Media removes arsenic +5 AND +3. However, high levels of As+3 can shorten media life and pretreatment is recommended
With arsenic levels less than 100 ppb, the media will typically last 2-3 years before effluent arsenic levels exceed 10 ppb. High silica, phosphate, pH, and iron can shorten the life expectancy of the media and pre-treatment for these contaminants is recommended.
This media provides removal of As+5 AND As+3 in most applications. However, high levels of As+3 can shorten media life and pretreatment is recommended. Arsenic levels up to 100 ppb can be treated with 95%-98% effectiveness.

Service flow rate is the manufacturers recommendation for maximum contaminant removal at a constant flow for media alone. Intermittent flow rate and/or lower contaminant levels MAY allow higher treatment flow rates.
Backwash Flow Rates
The backwash flow rate is the minimum rate that MUST be available to ensure proper backwashing and adequate media life. While lower flows can be used and MAY provide adequate results, media life may be significantly reduced.
