Highly refined manganese dioxide provide the highest removal capabilities of iron and hydrogen sulfide without the use of air or chemical injection. Excellent flow rates make Filox* one of the best medias for iron, sulfur, and manganese removal. Amount of media needed can be determined by tank size.
8"x44" Tank - 0.5 cubic foot
9"x48" Tank - 1 cubic foot
10"x54" Tank - 1.5 cubic feet
12"x48" Tank - 2 cubic feet
13"x54" Tank - 3 cubic feet
Note: Sizing not applicable to Air Injection systems. For sizing air injection systems, remove 0.5 cubic foot for your tank size, e.g. a 10"x54" Air Injection system only uses 1 cubic foot of media
Service flow rate is the manufacturers recommendation for maximum contaminate removal at a constant flow for media alone. Intermittent flow rate and/or lower contaminate 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.
Filox is the most widely known brand name for filtration media containing a minimum of 75% manganese dioxide. Other brand names shipped may include (but are not limited to): Catalox, Terminox, and MangOx, all containing a minimum of 75% manganese dioxide.
