WHY ECOMIX®

how ecomix® works

Ecomix is a composite media consisting of 5 materials
of different origin and properties Includes two unique components invented by Ecosoft
1. Inert resin

reduces oxidized iron

2. FerroSorb unique

reduces iron and
manganese

3. HumiSorb unique

reduces organic
impurities

4. Cation exchange resin

softens water

5. Quartz sand

ensures uniform flow
across the vessel

1. Get
ready-to-use
Ecomix media
in the bag
2. Put
the media
in a regular
softener
3. Regenerate
the system,
and Ecomix will
self-classify in
5-layer bed
4. Use
and regenerate
Ecomix system like
you would regular
softener

REMOVAL OF IRON AND MANGANESE
REGENERATION OF ECOMIX®

FerroSorb is a proprietary sorption material for iron and manganese removal
FerroSorb bead
  • Ferrosorb ensures total iron and manganese removal
    Iron is removed in the following way: ADSORPTION — OXIDATION — ACTIVE LAYER FORMATION — AUTOCATALYTIC OXIDATION. Due to this process FerroSorb removes most common species of iron in raw water: ferrous, ferric, organic, and colloidal. Active layer of Ferrosorb contains active sites for manganese removal.
  • Proven alternative to aeration and chlorination
    Ecomix shows best performance when raw water is fed directly to Ecomix unit. Do not use oxidative pre-treatment before the Ecomix system.
Cross-section of
FerroSorb bead
  • Regenerated as a softener
    Ecomix is regenerated using the same sequence as a common softener: backwash, brine, rinse, fill. Calcium and magnesium ions are displaced from the cation exchange resin matrix with sodium ions. Humisorb is regenerated with chloride ions.
  • Iron and manganese are purged
    by surface scour mechanism
    Iron and manganese are removed during backwash by surface scour mechanism in fluidized bed.

removing tannins

HumiSorb is a proprietary sorption material
for removal of natural organic matter
(reducing color and tannins)
Organic compounds are removed by the mechanism of hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions
