MetalEase-61™ has excellent filtration capabilities and has the added ability of oxidizing and capturing dissolved metals such as iron, arsenic, hydrogen sulfide, lead, copper, etc. It also has been successfully used on uranium, barium, and radium.

It can be used as a stand alone filtration media or as an added layer in a sand or multimedia filter system. Many times, existing equipment can be utilized just by changing the existing filter media to MetalEase-61 and adjusting the backwash rate. The media requires no chemical regeneration. Vigorous backwashing keeps the bed clean.

MetalEase-61 is NSF/ANSI-61 compliant.
It covers a wide range of water treatment applications. The 12 x 40 mesh particle distribution and angular shape make this an excellent media for depth filtration.
