1 CU FT MTM IRON MEDIA
Clack MTM is a granular manganese dioxide filtering media used for reducing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from water. Its active surface coating oxidizes and precipitates soluble iron and manganese. Hydrogen sulfide is oxidized to a sulfur. The precipitates are filtered out in the granular bed and removed by backwashing.
MTM consists of a lightweight granular core with a coating of manganese dioxide. The coating provides an example of contact filtration where the media itself provides the oxidizing potential. This allows for a much broader range of operation than many other iron removal media. A pH level as low as 6.2 can be treated. Dissolved oxygen is not essential. The media's lightweight reduces backwash water requirements.
MTM requires either intermittent or continuous regeneration to maintain its oxidizing capacity. A solution of potassium permanganate (or chlorine then potassium permanganate) can be pre-fed to maintain capacity. In the latter case, the manganese dioxide coating acts as a catalyst to enhance the oxidation reactions and as a buffer to reduce any excess potassium permanganate concentration and prevent it from entering the service lines.
