Excessive Manganese. While PYROLOX is effective on hydrogen sulfide, iron and manganese, the reaction time on manganese is slower. This does not present a problem in most parts of the United States, but if you should have excessively high levels of manganese, typical in New England, for example, you may need to extend the dwell time of the service flow over the media bed. OVERVIEW of LP-509 Phenolic Specification: LP-509 (LP-509A) is a federal specification covering thermoset phenolic and glass epoxy laminate sheets, rods and tubes. This specification was superceeded by Mil-P-15035 and later by Mil-I-24768. Mil-I-24768 is the current specification covering these products. For a complete list and product links ...

SPECIFICATION COMPLIANCE AND PERFORMANCE TEST PROCEDURE PROPERTY RESULTS ASTM C1728, Type III, Grade 1A Standard Specification for Flexible Aerogel Insulation Complies ASTM C165 Compressive Resistance ≥ 3 psi (20.7 kPa) @ 10% deformation ASTM C356 Linear Shrinkage Under Soaking Heat < 2% @ 1200°F (650°C) ASTM C411 Hot Surface Performance Pass clean, high-quality water. Pyrolox works because of a catalyst reaction whereby hydrogen sulphide, iron, and manganese are oxidized on the media. Daily backwashing then flushes trapped particulate from the filter bed. Pyrolox™ is a natural mineral form of manganese dioxide, making it an environmentally sound means of water filtration.
