Birm® Filter Media

Birm is a granular filter media for reducing iron and manganese from water supplies. A dense granular filter media, black in colour and produced by impregnating Manganous salts to an Aluminium Silicate core and can be used in gravity-fed or pressurized water treatment systems. Birm media enhances the reaction between Dissolved Oxygen and Iron/Manganese by acting as an insoluble stimulant, oxidizing the precipitate into larger particles so they can be removed by a filter. The oxidized particles are then strained out of the water through the media and will eventually coat the surface of the Birm media.
