FERROLOX® (IRON HYDROXIDE BASED GRANULES) is one of the best adsorber to load major worst contaminants in drinking water treatment with high capacity and also because of its chemical activity, ferric (III) hydroxide is quite appropriate to bind arsenate, phosphate or sulfide ions in aqueous media.

Using a patented process, ferric hydroxide can now be produced in a granular form. Various bead diameters can be made by combination of crushing and sieving procedures. This gives access to a great variety of new applications of Ferric (III) hydroxide.

Removal of





Hydrogen Sulfide

Selenium (IV & VI)





The Filter media, containing iron hydroxide Fe(OH)3 has an amorphous structure. The ferric ions content in the filtering media is about 40% by weigh. Because of its chemical activity, Ferric (III) hydroxide is quite appropriate to bind arsenate, phosphate or sulfide ions in aqueous media. Due to internal high pH of media it has an additional effect of the reaction with H2S and can reach oxidation capacity up to 20% by its dry weight. Hydrogen Sulfide is a colorless gas with an offensive stench and is said to smell like rotten eggs. The gas can be detected at a level of 2 parts per billion. It is very errosive in a wet state and become Sox when it is oxidized.

Best Features

• Very Compact Design
• Easy to use
• Disposal of Spend Media



H2S removal of gas

General Information FERROLOX® – G

FERROLOX® – G is a iron hydroxide based, pelletized gas purification compound. It is particularly effective at removing Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) from gas-producing installations (i.e. digesters, landfills). It is optimally shaped and highly porous, thus ensuring maximum loading capacity at low costs. The pelletized gas purification compound FERROLOX® – G is a highly effective absorption compound used in both, moving and fixed-bed vessels. Know More…
