is a purple-gray filter media used for removing soluble iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, arsenic and radium from well water supplies.Manganese greensand
is a specially processed medium for iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulphide removal. This premium non-proprietary filter medium is processed from glauconitic greensand on which a shiny, hard finite thickness manganese oxide coating is formed and is firmly attached on every grain by a controlled process.
Manganese greensand is catalytic by nature and is not soluble. There is no increase in the total dissolved solids of the treated
water, and it is not necessary to backwash manganese greensand every time the well pump starts up.
- Iron removal over wide pH range
- Effective removal of hydrogen sulfide in addition to iron and/or manganese
- No harmful effects from a chlorine feed
- Low attrition loss for long bed life
