IROX N70 is a black or light brown, granular, naturally mined filter media composed of high purity manganese dioxide. IROX N70 is a solid manganese dioxide offering higher flow rates and faster reaction times. IROX N70 media uses for iron removal and oxidation-reduction filtration process similar to manganese greensand, but at a far higher level of performance, and lasts many years longer due to its solid form and higher purity. IROX N70 works by adsorbing the oxidized species of iron, manganese or sulfides on the external as well as the porous internal structures of the media. This is a catalytic process which processes water at a faster flow rate than traditional manganese media.


A strong backwash at the proper flow rate is required to keep the IROX N70 media clean. A rate of 12 to 15 GPM per square foot is recommended, in order to be able to lift and expand the filter media, and wash out the trapped iron and manganese oxides. Since IROX N70 is a solid granule with very high particle strength, frequent backwashing does not harm the media and dramatically extends the life of the media.

  • Iron reduction over wide pH
  • Effective reduction of hydrogen sulfide in addition to iron and/or
  • No harmful effects from a chlorine
  • Low attrition for long bed


pH of Raw waters having natural pH of 6.5 or above can be filtered through IROX N70 without pH correction. Raw waters with a pH lower than

6.5 should be pH-corrected to 6.5- 6.8 before filtration. Additional alkali should be added following the filters if a pH higher than 6.5-6.8 is desired in the treated water. This prevents the possible adverse reaction and formation of a colloi- dal precipitate that sometimes occurs with iron and alkali at a pH above 6.8.
