Filox-R Media


Our Filox-R Media is designed for use in backwashing systems for the removal of iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide. Consisting of high levels of manganese dioxide Filox-R has excellent catalytic properties which delivers the highest flow rate for any standard iron removal media.

Why Choose Our Filox-R Media?

  • Removes iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide
  • Supplied in 25kg bags (1/2 Cubic Ft)
  • Outperforms Birm and Greensand
  • High service flow rates

Filox-R Media works by catalytic oxidation, its excellent catalytic properties mean that it can often be used without any additional oxidation depending on the presence of dissolved oxygen in the water. However, even with enough dissolved oxygen present in the water (higher than -170 milivolts) it is recommended to use additional oxidising agents (such as oxygen, ozone, chlorine, hydrogen peroxide or potassium permanganate) for improved performance.

Filox-R requires a pH of 7 or more for iron removal and a pH of 8 or more for manganese removal. The media gives a high flow rate and out lasts Birm, but it is heavy and requires a high backwashing flow rate to remove oxidised iron and manganese. The use of oxidising agents is recommended, highly reducing waters may cause premature exhaustion.

Key Product Information

  • Superior particle strength holds up during frequent backwashing
  • Can be used without additional oxidation in some applications
  • High manganese dioxide content (75-85%)
  • 7500x longer lifespan than Birm media
  • Chlorine tolerant media

ORP over -170mV indicates Filox-R can be used
