Hydrosil’s HS-600 uses reactive chemistry to oxidize various pollutants. The HS-600 is zeolite impregnated with 6% potassium permanganate (KMnO4). Its’ high impregnated level of KMnO4 and insignificant dusting attributes make it an ideal media for gas phase filtration. The HS-600 is designed for removing acid gases, aldehydes, amines, and various hazardous air pollutants. The media is typically used in the following industries:
The media is loaded in tanks, exhaust systems, soil vapor extraction (SVE) systems, air filtration trays and modules. To see if the HS-600 removes a specific pollutant please see our Air Pollutants page, or contact a representative today.
HS-600 is zeolite impregnated media and HS-400 is activated alumina impregnated media. Both medias are impregnated with potassium permanganate (KMnO4) which oxidizes acid gases and odors. The HS-600 is a harder material than the HS-400; Therefore, the HS-600 will result in insignificant dusting. Depending on the application, Hydrosil will suggest either the HS-600 or HS-400.
Potassium permanganate (chemical formula KMnO4) similar to sodium permanganate is a crystalline purple solid that dissovles in water. The chemical is a powerful oxidizer that is commonly used to kill parasites, bacterias, viruses, inorganic and organic compounds. Potassium permanganate uses include: medical use, water treatment, industrial use, analytical use, fruit preservation, and manufactured goods such as fire starters. Through oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions, KMnO4 is used in vapor control to remove harmful gases such as DCE, TCE, and styrene. Most redox reactions with potassium permanganate will not generate toxic byproducts.
