Katalox Light® is being used for residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal applications, for high level filtration, color and odor removal, iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide removal, efficient reduction of arsenic, zinc, copper, lead, radium, uranium and other radionuclides and heavy metals.
Katalox-Light® is based on Zeosorb® (a high purity natural Aluminosilicate microcrystalline mineral) with a special process impregnated and then coated with MnO2 that can filter particles as small as 2-3 microns. The coating acts as a protective agent for the impregnated substance.
The Katalox-Light® granules have an angular shape, rough high micro-porous surface to filter water down to 2-3 microns. The rough surface and very high porosity provide a huge surface area for efficient reduction of dirt, silt and suspended solids. Katalox-Light® structure features less pressure loss, high service and flow rates and high bed loadings combined with lower backwash frequency.
Katalox-Light® is used to remove Arsenic, Iron, Manganese, H2S and other metals from the water and needs no potassium permanganate (KMnO4) or chlorine.
Katalox-Light® filters can be operated at the flow rate of 12 gmp/sq. ft (30 m/h) with a single pressure vessel with and it requires only 5 – 10 minutes backwash time with the flow rate of 5.5 gpm/ sq. ft (13 m/h).
