Greensand Plus - RA074
Filter media used for removing soluble iron, manganese, hydrogen sulphide, arsenic and radium from well water supplies;

A pre-filtration with sand and anthracite is recommended;
The Manganese Greensand Plus can be used in CR (continuous regeneration) or IR (intermittent regeneration) and requires no
changes in backwash rate or times or chemical feeds;
The removal of iron and manganese can be made by using oxidant as chlorine, even in the presence of manganese;
Not shipped in regenerated form; prior to use it is necessary to regenerate with a solution of potassium permanganate
contacting the bed for a minimum of 4 hours. A regeneration level of 4 g of potassium permanganate per liter is recommended.

MTM - RA071
MTM consist of a light weight granular core with a coating of manganese dioxide, and is used for reducing iron, manganese and
hydrogen sulphide from water. Its active surface coating oxidizes and precipitate soluble iron and manganese, and hydrogen
sulphide is oxidized to a sulphur. The precipitates are filtered out in the granular bed and removed by backwashing;
Compared to other iron removal medias, MTM has many advantages: pH level as low as 6,2 can be treated, dissolved oxygen is
not essential, the media light weight reduces backwash water requirements;
Chlorine can be beneficial in extending filter run times;
MTM requires intermittent or continuous regeneration to maintain its oxidizing capacity, with a weak solution of potassium
Regeneration KMnO4 solution from 1,5 to 2 g per liter MTM;
A new bed should be regenerated at the start up;
CAUTION: operating the filter after its oxidizing capacity is exhausted will reduce its service life and may cause staining;
Influent limitations: none oil and polyphosphates;
Available in 28,3 liters bags.

dissolved oxygen and iron compounds, producing ferric hydroxide which precipitates and may be easily filtered;
The physical characteristics of BIRM provide an excellent filter media which is easily cleaned by backwashing to remove the
BIRM is not consumed in the iron removal operation;
Available in 28,3 liters bags;
Following are the conditions necessary for a good efficiency of the BIRM:
No Oil, Hydrogen Sulphide and Polyphosphates in the water;

CALCITE is a natural crushed and screened calcium carbonate media which is used to neutralize low pH waters;
Acidic water slowly dissolves the calcium carbonate to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and
other metals found in typical plumbing systems;

Of course CALCITE will increase the hardness of the water;
Periodic backwashing of the bed is necessary to keep in working order the system;
The CALCITE bed will have to be periodically replenished as the CALCITE is depleted;
Gravel support bed is recommended;

Corosex RA075
Corosex is designed for use in filters to neutralize acidity by increasing the pH value;
By neutralizing the free carbon dioxide in water, Corosex can correct acidic water conditions and render it less corrosive.
Corosex, being a highly reactive magnesium oxide, is used most effectively where pH correction is substantial or high flow
conditions are in use. pH correction and media consumption are affected by a number of water chemical variables. Being soluble
to acidity, Corosex will slowly dissolve and will need to be replenished periodically;
On a per weight basis, magnesium oxide can neutralize five times more acidity than can calcium carbonate. This results in
greatly reduced chemical usage for the same pH correction. Please note; under certain low flow conditions, Corosex may
overcorrect and create a highly basic (high pH) condition;
Under certain hardness conditions, pH correction can cause hardness minerals to precipitate out of solution, resulting in
cementing or solidification of the Corosex mineral bed. Upflow service is generally recommended with hardness exceeding 9 °F.
Always use an in-line filter ahead of an upflow system to prevent plugging of the lower distribution screen;
As Corosex’s magnesium oxide neutralizes the water, it will increase hardness and a softener may become necessary after the
neutralizing filter;
Corosex can be effectively combined with Calcite to combine the high flow neutralization properties of Corosex, along with the
slower reacting low flow properties of Calcite, reducing potentially high basic properties due to overcorrection;
High degree of activity and speed of correction allowing high flow;
High capacity...less chemical usage;
Available in 18,7 liters bags.
