Clack's Potassium Permanganate Feeder Assembly incorporates a non-pressurized storage tank and innovative grid design along with our dependable 464 float valve. The attractive 10'x16' tank is made of tough blow molded high density polyethylene, and contains an ultraviolet inhibitor (UVI) for increased resistance to sunlight. It has a Potassium Permanganate capacity of 30 pounds and a liquid capacity of five gallons. 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 71⁄2 inches. The unit is shipped fully tested and assembled in individual cartons. Shipping weight is seven pounds. Please consult the factory for further information.
Iron And Manganese Removal:
A recommended dose of 11⁄2 - 2 ounces of Potassium Permanganate per cubic foot of MTM, Manganese Greensand or Greensand Plus is suggested for regeneration.
Correct water temperature is important to properly dissolve Potassium Permanganate. At 50°F (10°C) four ounces of Potassium Permanganate can dissolve in one gallon of water. At room temperatures (72°F - 22°C) eight ounces will dissolve in one gallon of water.
