Filox has the best contaminant reduction efficiency primarily because of its very high purity of manganese dioxide. Unlike coated filter media such as Birm or manganese greensand, Pro-OX is a solid manganese dioxide offering higher flow rates 1 0 obj It may be used in either gravity fed or pressurized water treatment systems. Just some of the advantages of Birm Media include: -long material life with relatively low attrition loss -a wide temperature performance range and extremely high removal efficiency. The physical characteristics of Birm® provide an excellent filter media which is easily cleaned by backwashing to remove the precipitant. Polyphosphates are known to coat Birm® and reduce Birm®'s ability to remove iron or manganese. Other advantages of Birm® include; long material life with relatively low attrition loss, a wide temperature performance range and extremely high removal efficiency.

Manganese greensand, pyrolusite, Birm, or any media coated with manganese dioxide has the capacity to oxidize iron and manganese and filter the insoluble precipitates with the filter bed. Filox* out performs Greensand, Birm, and pyrolox, etc. <> I hope you’re having a fine day wherever you are listening. endobj Under the proper conditions, no chemicals to purchase for maintenance.

By placing Birm® on top of Filox®, the Birm® removes dissolved iron and manganese before they reach Filox®, thereby protecting Filox® from being coated with ferric hydroxide (iron) or manganese dioxide… "2�E Birm® is an efficient and economical media for the reduction of dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. Birm® is an efficient and economical media for the reduction of dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. A mined ore, Pyrolox® effectively reduces iron, sulfur and manganese from problem water. Depending of the raw water quality it is quite common to find concentrations of iron and manganese which have to removed in the water treatment plant. When used to reduce manganese, the water to be treated should have a pH between 8.0-9.0 for best results.
