MELsorb® Media For Contaminant RemovalSource: Isolux Technologies, A Division of MEL Chemicals, Inc.
MELsorb® media is an environmentally safe, highly efficient, inorganic adsorption media for the removal of heavy metal ions, including arsenic, antimony, chromium, gallium, indium, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, and vanadium from both drinking water and industrial effluent systems. Work continues on other metals of concern including Lead, Mercury, and Cadmium.
Heavy metals are used in various guises from paints, pigments, tanning agents and so on. The adverse health effects of heavy metals have been known for a long time and yet their use in certain parts of the world, in particular in less developed countries, is increasing.
Certain industries create, by nature of their processes, aqueous effluent which can be contaminated with these heavy metals; Industries such as metal plating, semiconductor manufacturing, tanneries etc. The MELsorb® system is highly effective at permanently removing these contaminants to below limits of detection.
