Media Filtration: Ferrolite


Iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn) are abundant elements found in the Earth’s crust, primarily existing in an oxidized state (Ferric, Fe3+ and Mn4+), rendering them insoluble in natural waters. However, under reducing conditions, notable quantities of iron and manganese can be present in both surface water and groundwater. In their reduced forms, these elements become soluble as divalent ferrous (Fe2+) and manganous (Mn2+) ions, chemically bonding with organic matter.

Ferrolite represents a specialized filter media designed to effectively remove iron content from water, characterized by its distinct pungent iron odor and the presence of yellow water discoloration.
