Kalatox Light Iron Removal Media, 1/2 Bag


High content (10%) gamma Manganese dioxide (MnO2) coated ZEOSORB. Katalox-Light® is produced in Germany from ZEOSORB® as a raw material. Katalox-Light® the lightest, to Greensand and Filter-OX, the heaviest. The Katalox-Light® media is the only catalytic media with the highest surface area which removes turbidity, suspended solids up to less than (< 3 microns).

The major advantage of Katalox-Light® is the slower head loss which leads to longer operation time. Katalox-Light® presents a rough and high surface characterized by a high number of pores and crevices. Accordingly, the structural and the texture is considerably different from Greensand Plus and Filter-OX. As a result, this allows slower head loss development, but at the same time causes higher pH and higher removal of iron and manganese without using any chemicals. Application of Katalox-Light® media can produce high-quality water without iron, manganese, and turbidity. Additionally, backwashing water demand is 60% less than Greensand Plus and Filter-OX.
