WECO Whole House Filter with Katalox Light® & Ozone for Iron, Manganese & Hydrogen Sulfide Reduction

The WECO Backwashing filter with Katalox Light® is a specialized Point-Of-Entry (POE) system for municipal and well water supplies. Made in Germany, Katalox Light consists of manganese dioxide (MnO2) coated onto naturally mined ZEOSORB. This is a light-weight filtration media with many valuable functions and properties related to water treatment and remediation. Katalox Light media has a very high surface area which filters out particulate matter down to three microns. This is an ideal media to use for removing Totals Suspended Solids (TSS), turbidity and sediments like sand and oxidized mineral particles. Katalox Light also has oxidation properties. Iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide are easily removed with this media. The active surface coating oxidizes and precipitates soluble iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide, which are flushed away in the back wash operation. The media also removes lead, copper, radium, uranium as well as other heavy metals and radionuclides. Added AIO/Ozone feature will mitigate potential iron bacterial fouling of the media. Daily regeneration is recommended.

WECO backwashing filters are available in a variety of sizes. Please consult with WECO Technical Support for assistance in selecting the proper size filter to meet your water purification requirements.
