Breakthrough in Iron removal Technology!
No Chemical Dependency !

Real installations from different part 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 inlet concentration of as high as 60 – 100 mg/L (ppm).

    Our high efficiency iron/manganese removal technology  is based on Manganese Dioxide catalytic  conversion  into higher valence insoluble oxy-hydroxides that are then filtered out with an automated backwash filter. The filtrationmedia used for that purpose is DMI-65.

    The DMI-65 is the most sophisticated catalytic water filtration media that has extremely high capabilities of removing both Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn) simultaneously through low cost catalytic oxidation and retention of precipitate.  The DMI-65 will also remove arsenic from a water supply given the correct conditions.
