Katalox Light

KATALOX LIGHT ® composition simply makes it outstanding against the contemporary filter media available in water treatment industries, like sand, BIRM, Greensand Plus, Manganese Greensand etc. It’s engineered with unique MnO2 coating technique on ZEOSORB®, providing it lightweight, higher filtration surface, more service life and more reliable performance (filtration down to 3 microns) than any other existing granular filter media.

Applications include high level filtration:

  • Color and odor removal
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Arsenic
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Lead
  • Radium
  • Uranium and other radionuclides
  • Heavy metals

The weight of KATALOX LIGHT ® results equivalent product being shipped, using less space and weight = significant transportation savings.


Katalox-Light® (KL)
1 bag = 28.3 liters (66 lb.)

Greensand Plus (GSP)
1 bag = 14.15 liters (44 lb.)
1,000 liters = 70.7 bags (3,116 lb.)

Difference = Just over 50% less bags and Katalox-Light weighs 781 lb.less than Greensand Plus

Advanced Features:

Fracking (involves injecting a slurry of water, chemicals and sand down a well to crack open shale bedrock and extract oil and gas): Reducing radionuclide waste in fracking wastewater

Cooling tower re-circulation: Dramatically reducing the blow-down water and using part of it in re-circulation process

Reverse Osmosis Pre-treatment: Increasing the membrane life-span 3-4 times more

Removal of Arsenic by the method of co-precipitation
