MetSorb® Arsenic Filter Media

MetSorb® Arsenic Media

MetSorb arsenic media is used to reduce arsenic contamination from drinking water.  Arsenic is a grey, semi-metal element.  Arsenic enters ground water from both natural sources and human activity. Contamination can sometimes be traced to deep-water brines produced from gas and oil well drilling. It is also be found in wood preservatives and may be a byproduct of herbicide production.

MetSorb adsorbs lead, both forms of arsenic and a variety of contaminants found in well water or municipal drinking water.  Empty bed contact times (EBCT) can as low as 10 seconds achieve high removal efficiencies.  MetSorb’s adsorptive capacity is 7-12 grams of arsenic per kilogram (g/kg) of HMRG adsorbent in drinking water applications with a pH range of 6.5-8.5.  In industrial applications much higher capacities have been measured – up to 400 g/kg.
