Mafanese Zeolite – Zeomangan

SKU: mafanese-zeolite-zeomangan Category:



Geomangan is formulated from a glauconite greensand and is capable of reducing iron,
manganese and hydrogen sulfide from water through oxidation and filtration. Soluble iron and
manganese are oxidized and precipitated by contact with higher oxides of manganese on the
greensand granules. The hydrogen sulfide is reduced by oxidation to an insoluble sulfur
precipitate. Precipitates are then filtered and removed by backwashing. When the oxidizing
capacity power of the Manganese Greensand bed is exhausted, the bed has to be regenerated
with a weak potassium permanganate (KMnO4) solution thus restoring the oxidizing capacity of
the bed. 1½ to 2 ounces of potassium permanganate, in solution, per cubic foot of Manganese
Greensand is considered sufficient for normal regeneration. It is required to vigorously
backwash and regenerate the bed when it is placed in service and before its oxidation capacity
is totally exhausted. Operating the bed after oxidation capacity is exhausted will reduce its
service life and may cause staining.
