Aqua-Bind® MP
The POU Arsenic Removal Solution: Adsorptive Media Cartridges

ARSENIC REMOVAL CARTRIDGES

Apyron arsenic removal cartridges offer the ideal solution for removing toxic arsenic from municipally treated water for POU applications. Aqua-Bind MP granular media packaged within the cartridges is the active adsorbent that removes arsenic from drinking water. The use of these cartridges eliminates problems associated with handling bulk media. The arsenic removal cartridges are currently available in standard 2.5x10-inch, 4.5x10-inch, and 4.5x20-inch upflow configurations and are designed to fit in standard pressure-rated housings. These products can treat a wide range of arsenic (III) and (V) concentrations. Individual water quality is usually considered in determining the size and number of cartridges required for treatment. Cartridges are easy to install for either under-the-counter or basement installations and are ideal as post treatment to whole-household water softeners or as a stand-alone system.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Aqua-Bind MP is an effective granular chemical adsorption media specifically designed to remove both forms of arsenic from drinking water. The media is listed under NSF Standard 61 for drinking water applications. These cartridges have been designed specifically for Point-of-Use (POU) and Point-of-Entry (POE) whole-house drinking water applications. The product has proven performance for removing arsenic, excellent kinetics, and a wide range of applicability.
