Breakthrough in iron removal technology!
No chemical dependency!

Real installations from different parts of the world have been reported to remove high amounts of iron. In a few extreme cases, multi-stage Katalox-Light filtration systems have been used without the use of any chemicals to remove iron with an inlet concentration of as high as 60 – 100 mg/L (ppm).
