Pyrolox® Advantage Filter Media

Pyrolox® Advantage is the greatest value of all manganese dioxide filter media. Pyrolox® Advantage is an engineered media with a lower density core and a textured high-MnO2mno2 surface. It is a clean, lightweight solution for the removal of iron, manganese, arsenic, and hydrogen sulfide in water. The lightweight media is easier to transport, easier to backwash, allows for a smaller filter footprint, and has higher oxidation than competitive media, allowing for higher service flow rates.


Pyrolox® Advantage offers many benefits:

  • The only lightweight, coated media with no pre-treatment required
  • Cleanest start-up
  • Lower backwash rates and longer run times between backwashes
  • Lower transportation costs
  • Engineered to be naturally catalytic and does not depend on activation to perform
  • Does not require potassium permanganate
  • Higher oxidation than competing medias allowing for higher service flow rates

Key features:

  • Lightweight
  • Highly porous surface area with durable, high-purity MnO2 coating
  • True MnO2mno2 coating
  • 12.5% MnO2mnco2 (highest Mn content of any lightweight media)
  • Eradication of fines
  • Does not stratify when used with sand in a mixed bed


  • Directly certified by NSF (not a 3rd party)
  • Manufactured by Prince at its ISO certified facility
  • Will continue to perform its function in non-ideal conditions

Pyrolox® Advantage reduces operational time and lowers costs at the filter commissioning stage for private, industrial, and municipal water treatment systems.
