Calcite Media (Calcium Carbonate Mineral) pH Correction, Acid Neutralizing Media - ½ Cubic Ft
1/2 CUBIC FOOT OF CALCITE MEDIA
ACID NEUTRALIZING MEDIA
1/2 Cubic Foot Acid Neutralization Media.
Acidic waters on contact with Calcite slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate media to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems.
Advantages: l High uniformity coefficient for maximum contact for controlled pH correction l Slower reacting l Inexpensive Physical Properties: l Color - Near White l l Composition - CaCO3, 95% minimum - MgCO3, 3.0% maximum Conditions for Operation: l pH - 5 - 6 l Bed Depth - 24 - 30 in. l Backwash Rate - 8-12 GPM/sq. ft. l Backwash Bed Expansion - 35% of bed depth l
