TWP Whole House Katalox Light Water Filtration System - FT56-FM20 Filter Backwash Valve 110V
Advanced Filtration Media
Filtration of :
- Less than 3 micron
- Suspended Solids
- Hydrogen Sulfide
- Heavy Metals
Katalox Light® systems offer a new technology with advanced catalytic filtration available in water treatment industry. All systems have been engineered keeping both professionals and consumers in mind. Systems are available with different models and customized for manual backwash without using electricity or it can be made fully-automatic. System can be used in a variety of applications including residential, commercial and any process water applications for food and beverage industry. Standard systems are designed with a filtration velocity of 20 m/h (8.2 gpm/ft2 ) to provide a good filtration. This value may differ for advanced application like Arsenic, Radium, Uranium and other Heavy Metal removal where co-precipitation process requires higher contact time thus lower filtration velocity. Running the system at higher velocity may compromise the filtration performance. Virtually there is no flow rate limitations for KL systems as KL units can be configured in parallel to address industrial high flow requirements.
Recommended System Operating Conditions: Inlet water pH 5.8 - 10.5
Recommended Maximum Flow Rate 5 GPM
Regeneration/Dosing (optional*) *Only if the water doesn't have sufficient oxygen to oxidize the contaminants. It also helps to clean the media surface better if used at the backwash H2O2 for 1.0 mg/l of Fe2+ 0.9 mg/l for 1.0 mg/l of Mn2+ 1.8 mg/l for 1.0 mg/l of H2S 4.5 mg/l KMnO4/Cl for 1.0 mg/l of Fe2+ 1.0 mg/l for 1.0 mg/l of Mn2+ 2.0 mg/l for 1.0 mg/l of H2S 5.0 mg/l
Selecting a water treatment system begins with water test results from a certified drinking water testing lab. Such test results should be compared to the water treatment product specifications to ensure that the treatment system being considered is designed to treat:
- The substances you want to treat
- In the concentrations at which they exist in your water.
There is no one-size-fits-all water treatment technology that addresses all water quality problems. In some cases, one treatment technology may meet all your specific needs. In other cases, you may need a “treatment train”—a series of treatment technologies in a sequence that treat one or more water quality problems. Again, when considering water treatment, use your lab test results as a guide and make sure the technology you are considering is designed to treat the problematic substances in your water.
