Aqua-Bind® MP
Product Data Sheet

Arsenic Removal Media

Aqua-Bind® MP is a new adsorption media custom designed for the removal of arsenic (III) and (V) from water and wastewater. Apyron's patented composite technology has been designed for use in Point-of-Entry (POE) and Point-of-Use (POU) applications. The product is also ideal for whole-household treatment where iron co-exists with arsenic. Multiple contaminants can be removed simultaneously with the unique catalyst-based technology that promotes co-precipitation and removal. Aqua-Bind MP has a low bulk density, requiring little energy for efficient backwashing. It requires no chemical regeneration, has a long bed life, and operates over a wide temperature range. The product is a great companion to conventional water softeners and can be utilized or retrofitted into conventional water treatment tanks or vessels. Spent media can typically be discarded as non-hazardous solid waste. This material has been certified under NSF 61 for use in drinking water applications.
