Pyrolox 56 FT backwash valve Iron Manganese Sulfur Water Filter 1/2 CU FT OF MEDIA


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.

Pyrolox™ is a highly effective media for the removal of iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide. This robust product has proven highly successful in both point-of-entry, municipal and point-of-use applications. 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.



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. ft. 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.
