Corosex / Flomag media for pH adjustment in water Magnesium Oxide

cosrosex flomag filter media By neutralizing the free carbon dioxide in water, Corosex / Flomag can correct red water conditions and render it to a non-corrosive condition. Corosex / Flomag, being a reactive magnesium oxide, is used most effectively where pH correction is substantial or high flow conditions are in use. Corosex / Flomag, being soluble to acidity, will have to be replenished periodically. Please note, Under certain low flow conditions, corasex may overcorrect and create a basic condition.

Corosex can be effectively combined with Calcite to combine the high flow neutralization properties of Corosex / Flomag, along with the slower reacting low flow properties of Calcite reducing potentially high basic properties due to overcorrection
  • Advantages:

    High degree of activity and speed of correction allowing high flow
  • Physical Properties:
