LENNSORB - Model 101 - Adsorbent Based on Granular Ferric Hydroxide
From Activated Carbon
LENNSORB 101 is a high performance adsorbent based on granular ferric hydroxide. Made in a patented manufacturing process, it was special developed for selective removal of heavy metals and other toxic elements from water. Recognized for its high quality, LENNSORB 101 adsorbent complies with all requirements of DIN EN15029.
LENNSORB 101 has been succesfully used for many years for heavy metal removal in groundwater purification as well as in treatment of process wastewaters and lanfill leachates.
LENNSORB 101 can be used in adsorption filters, underground filtration beds and permeable reactive barriers around polluted soil.
LENNSORB 101 adsorbs heavy metals such as chromium, uranium, copper and lead, as well as other toxic elements including arsenic, antimony, vanadium, molybdenum and selenium. Its adsorption capacity depends on the composition and properties of the water to be treated and the operating conditions.
