MetSorb HMRG and HMRP adsorbents utilize a patented material to adsorb both forms of arsenic as well as a wide range of contaminants in water.  The material affords a higher capacity and a lower level of ion interference than competitive iron and alumina based products.
MetSorb HMRG media’s adsorptive capacity is 220 grams of arsenic per kilogram of HMRG adsorbent at a pH of 7.  It yields 40,000 bed volumes of capacity at an inlet concentration of 40 parts per billion (ppb) of arsenic, at 1.6 minutes of empty bed contact time EBCT, and a breakthrough of 10 ppb.
