Pyrolox 56FT Iron Manganese Sulfur Water Filter. Pyrolox 56FT Iron Manganese Sulfur Water Filter 1.5 CU FT OF MEDIA TANK SIZE 10 X 54. Pyrolox is a granular water filtration media used for the removal of hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese.
Through a natural chemical reaction, Pyrolox has the ability to help you produce clean, high-quality water. Pyrolox works because of a catalyst reaction whereby hydrogen sulfide, iron, and manganese are oxidized on the media. Daily backwashing then flushes trapped particulate from the filter bed. Pyrolox is a natural mineral form of manganese dioxide, making it an environmentally sound means of water filtration.
Though each treatment application is unique, there are certain general guidelines that need to be followed in order to realize the full benefits of Pyrolox as a permanent media. Backwashing As with any media, frequent and thorough back-washing is essential for long-term success with Pyrolox. The specific frequency of regular back-washing is dependent on water quality and application rate. A daily backwash at the appropriate rate is required to remove precipitated contaminants from the filter bed. Suggested back-wash rate: 25-30 gpm/sq. Oxidant Feed To maintain and further augment the long-term performance and removal capacity of the media, an oxidant feed of some type is strongly recommended. This will maintain the media and enhance removal capacity. Chlorine injection (options include chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, or calcium hypochlorite) immediately up stream of the filter feed is a simple way to meet this requirement. Other acceptable oxidants include air injection (oxygen is an oxidant), potassium permanganate, sodium permanganate, etc.
Hydrogen peroxide is specifically prohibited for use as an oxidant. Bed Depth: Suggested depth 18 inches. Dependent on application and water quality. Other materials are also suitable but must keep media from migrating downward and be heavy enough to remain in place during backwash. Freeboard: 40% of bed depth min.
Since Pyrolox turns sulfur, iron, and manganese into a particulate, the solids begin to coat the surface of the media, weakening its oxidation capacity. Thorough back-washing keeps the surface of the media free to continue the oxidation process.
Do I need to underbed Pyrolox? Without and underbed you will find the filter can have a poor backwash distribution.
