Filox R Iron & Manganese Removal Filtration Media 0.5 ft3 (CuFt)
£118.00 excl. VAT
Filox is used for iron and manganese reduction by oxidation. It requires a pH of 7 or more for Iron removal and pH 8 for manganese removal and there needs to be oxygen present to oxidise the metals. Filox can tolerate chlorine and has a higher flow rate than Birm and manganese dioxide. If the pH of the water is too low pH correction may be required. Filox-R has an expected lifespan that is 7500 times that of Birm.
Filox can be used for iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide removal by catalytic oxidation. It is a robust media allowing a faster service flow rate than other iron removal media. A pH of 7 is recommended for iron removal and 8 for manganese removal. It is a heavy media requiring a strong backwash. Adding other media is possible but can impair its service flow rate
