MP 948 - Alpine Pure 948 Filox Manual Backwash


Alpine Pure 948 Filox Manual Backwash
This Alpine Pure Water Treatment System is the very best for iron and manganese removal up to 10 parts per million. This system will provide a water flow of 25 LPM. Our Filox Iron Water Filter Tanks remove iron, sulfur, and manganese. They also control turbidity, reduce chlorine (if present), and have many other benefits. They are also "Chemical Free", so there are no chemicals to add, mix or drink. Filox is a mineral bed inside of a high pressure backwashable tank, which when backwashed sends the foreign substances in your water down the drain. These filters are also great for making your water softener work more efficiently and smoothly for many years by removing the resin contaminating iron and manganese before the softener.

This filter comes with a manual backwash valve as per photo.

Alpine Pure Pyrolox Benefits:

  • Remove iron, sulfur, and manganese with one filter!
  • Rust stain, rotten egg smells and all kinds of smelly water are history with this filtration system.
  • Completely Chemical Free operation. No hazardous materials to work with.
  • Remove contaminants, odors, tastes, and turbidity from your water. Add a chemical feeder and remove tannins, iron bacteria and other organic contaminants.
  • A naturally mined ore, Pyrolox® is a
    mineral form of manganese dioxide
    which has been used in water treatment
    for more than 75 years. Pyrolox is a
    granular filtration media for hydrogen
    sulfide, iron and manganese reduction.
    Pyrolox functions as a catalyst, but itself
    remains relatively unchanged.
    Pyrolox works on a principle whereby
    the hydrogen sulfide, iron and
    manganese are oxidized and trapped on
    the media while simple backwashing
    cleans the bed. No chemical regeneration
    is required, nothing is imparted into the
    drinking water and Pyrolox has a high
    capacity for low contaminant concentrations.
    Pyrolox can be used in conjunction with
    aeration, chlorination, ozone or other
    pretreatment methods for difficult
    applications. Chlorine or other oxidants
    accelerate the catalytic reaction.
    Because of its heavy weight, it is very
    important that Pyrolox filters are
    backwashed properly to insure adequate
    bed expansion and continued service

    • Effective reduction of iron, sulfur
    and manganese
