If you are having trouble seeing or completing this challenge, The greensand filter media has a special coating of manganese oxide, which oxidizes iron, manganese, and iron in the water, upon contact with the filter media. Manganese greensand is a specially processed medium for iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulphide removal.This premium non-proprietary filter medium is processed from glauconitic greensand on which a shiny, hard finite thickness manganese oxide coating is formed and is firmly attached on every grain by a controlled process.. endstream endobj 154 0 obj <>/Metadata 25 0 R/PieceInfo<>>>/Pages 24 0 R/PageLayout/OneColumn/StructTreeRoot 27 0 R/Type/Catalog/LastModified(D:20090813162915)/PageLabels 22 0 R>> endobj 155 0 obj <>/ColorSpace<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text/ImageC]/ExtGState<>>>/Type/Page>> endobj 156 0 obj <> endobj 157 0 obj <> endobj 158 0 obj <> endobj 159 0 obj [/ICCBased 172 0 R] endobj 160 0 obj <> endobj 161 0 obj <>stream 0000003387 00000 n %%EOF Filter-Mate Potassium Permanganate converts dissolved iron and manganese to insoluble oxide which are removed through filtration. 0000014929 00000 n Too little permanganate will not oxidize all Intermittent Regeneration is normally used when manganese removal … A method of using potassium permanganate continuously oxidizing manganese and ferrous ions from raw water has been used to form an iron-manganese co-oxide (MeOx) filter film on the surface of virgin quartz sand quickly in the start-up period. The greensand filter media has a special coating of manganese oxide, which oxidizes iron, manganese and iron in the water upon contact with the filter media. These elements can be removed during softening with lime, but most commonly iron and manganese is removed by filtration after oxidation (with air, potassium permanganate, or chlorine). This process used a feed of chlorine and potassium permanganate upstream of a manganese greensand filter to keep the catalytic manganese dioxide coating of the manganese greensand media regenerated. Permanganate is used in the iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn) removal processes in both surface water and ground water systems that employ filtration. CAIROX POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE TECHNICAL BRIEF.
