1/3 cubic foot drum. Media for the removal of iron (ferrous) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Also controls scale, bacteria and algae. May be used alone or to protect existing water filtration/purification technologies in point-of-entry treatment of groundwater supplies. This unique, innovative and environmentally responsible medium consists of high purity copper-zinc granules that use redox (the exchange of electrons) in patented products to effectively reduce/remove iron and hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals and control microorganisms in potable water. KDF-85 medium permits removal of iron and H2S without the use of chemicals. The most critical aspect of pressure filter performance is the relationship of flow rate to surface of KDF-85 process medium. Inaccurate sizing is the most common reason for trouble in filter systems. The nominal flow rate in the service cycle depends on surface area available. Service flow rates with KDF-55 process medium, however, may be calculated at 15 gpm per square foot of surface area. This is three times the effective flow rate of other filter media. Recommended Operating Conditions: Service flow (10" bed depth) 15 gpm/ft2. Backwash for 10 min @ twice the service flow. Purge/rinse for 3 min @ twice the service flow. Bed expansion, backwash 10 to 15%. Free board 20%. Min. bed depth (6" dia) 10". PH range: drinking water 6.5 to 8.5. Water temperature, influent 35°F to 212°F
