Potassium Permanganate Feeder Assembly Iron & Manganese Removal
Incorporates a non-pressurized storage tank and innovative grid design along with our dependable 464 float valve. The attractive 10x16 tank is made of tough blow molded high density polyethylene, and contains an ultraviolet inhibitor (UVI) for increased resistance to sunlight.* It has a storage capacity of up to 30 pounds of Dry Weight Potassium Permanganate. Feeders are available in blue, almond, or black and can be ordered in two, four, or six ounce delivery capacities. The black injection molded cover is securely fastened with two stainless steel safety screws to prevent access by children and pets. The fill port on the cover also includes a child resistant closure. (As with all chemicals, the potassium permanganate chemical tank should be placed safely away from children or pets). Chemical warning and drain caution labels are affixed to the unit. The unique polypropylene felt grid pad retains even the finest grade of undissolved Potassium Permanganate above the grid. This permits efficient use of our assembly with all grades of Potassium Permanganate. Two and four ounce feeders have a grid platform height of 5 inches. Six ounce feeders have a grid plat-form height of 7-1/2 inches. The unit is shipped fully tested and assembled in individual cartons. Shipping weight is seven pounds. Please consult the factory for further information.
The recommended dose of Potassium Permanganate for MTM or Greensand filters is 1-1/2 to 2 ounces per cubic foot. For Greensand Plus please refer to the manufacturers data sheet. Correct water temperature is important to properly dissolve Potassium Permanganate. At 50F (10C) four ounces of Potassium Permanganate can dissolve in one gallon of water. At room temperatures (72F - 22C) eight ounces will dissolve in one gallon of water. For further information please contact our technical department.
