Cost Effectiveness 

  • Low cost media coupled with high uptake capacity 


Simple Design and Installation 

  • Generally only lead/lag vessels needed 
  • No dosing other than pH adjustment or chlorination when required 


Pressure or Gravity Flow 

  • Typically used in pressure vessel for potable 
  • Also non-potable water gravity or flooded systems  


Easy disposal 

  • Passes TCLP and California WET for landfill disposal  


Regeneration for high levels of contaminants 

  • Dilute NaOH, H2SO4 for regeneration
