Pyrolox® Advantage Lightweight Coated Filter Media

Prince is the leading global supplier of manganese dioxide filter media for water treatment. Pyrolox® Advantage represents the next generation in manganese dioxide filter media. 


Pyrolox® Advantage is a lightweight, coated filter media engineered to deliver: 

  • Market leading removal of iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, and arsenic  
  • Lower pump specification to achieve same bed expansion  
  • If regenerated periodically, longest lasting media between regeneration/ backwashing 
  • Cleanest start-up (virtually no start up fines) of any lightweight media 

Pyrolox® Advantage can be used to filter a range of soluble inorganic impurities from raw water by oxidation to insoluble form, precipitation, and flocculation. The media can be used in a catalytic configuration with a supplemental oxidant (eg. OCl– or dissolved O2) or as a depleted resource requiring regeneration or replacement (eg. cartridge).

Iron (Fe2+) & Manganese (Mn2+) Removal   

The most common application for this media is iron and manganese removal. Manganese minerals have a well-documented record of capability for removal of these species. Pyrolox® Advantage removes soluble ions by the same mechanism as natural ore products, but faster and with better efficiency at low contaminant concentration. 

Engineered to be naturally catalytic

Pyrolox® Advantage is the only lightweight, coated filter media with no pretreatment required:

Pyrolox® Advantage filters almost all manganese from water at startup
Pyrolox® Advantage is the only Manganese Coated media that removes almost 100% of Mn at start-up.
