MetSorb®HMRG Effective, Low-Cost Adsorbent for Removal of Heavy Metals
MetSorb®HMRGand HMRP adsorbents utilize a patented material to adsorb both forms of arsenic as well as a wide range of contaminants in water.
Empty bed contact times as low as 10 seconds achieve high removal efficiencies. 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 7-12 grams of arsenic per kilogram of HMRG adsorbent in drinking water applications with a pH range of 6.5-8.5. Much higher adsorptive capacities have been measured, up to 400 g/kg, in industrial treatment applications.
