Liquid Phase, Modified Earth Blend

HS-MT Liquid Phase, Modified Earth Blend

Hydrosil’s HS-MT for liquid phase filtration is a 50/50 blend by volume of HS-200 and modified earth with a density of 49-51 pounds per cubic foot. HS-MT is extremely effective at removing dissolved metals. Common metals found in water include nickel, cadmium, zinc, chromium, and thallium.

Heavy metals are naturally occurring in the environment. Some heavy metals are essential in human bodies when in low concentrations such as copper and zinc. However high concentrations of heavy metals can have toxic effects on humans. Heavy metals in high concentrations can be found in soil, groundwater, and surface water due to mining and industrial pollution.

The HS-MT is commonly used in wastewater treatment facilities and industrial water treatment.
