Adsorption Treatment

Adsorption Treatment Bayoxide E33

How Does Adsorption Work?

In the adsorption process, contaminants break their bond with the water molecules and chemically adhere to a filter media. This is typically accomplished by directing the water flow through pressure vessels containing the filter media at a rate that allows enough contact time for adsorption to occur. AdEdge Water Technologies’ Bayoxide® E33 adsorption media is the industry standard for arsenic removal. This granular ferric oxide media reduces up to 99% total arsenic, including both Arsenic (III) and Arsenic (V).

The product has been utilized in over 12 USEPA Arsenic Demonstration projects and hundreds of public water systems throughout the world with flow rates ranging from 10 GPM to over 20 MGD. AdEdge’s product is ideal for integrated water system solutions, municipal water treatment systems, commercial installations, remediation, and residential POE systems to meet the  USEPA arsenic standard of 10 ppb. Developed in the mid-nineties, this ferric oxide-based (GFO) product has been successfully used more than any other product in large-scale drinking water applications since 1999. It has become the premier product of choice for commercial drinking water treatment systems for reliable, cost-effective, proven reduction of arsenic.
