MYCELX is a
patented polymeric surfactant technology that is infused
into all MYCELX Technologies water filtering media. MYCELX is designed
to remove hydrocarbons ranging from BTEX to crude oil, sheen,
chlorinated solvents, PCBs, organic solvents, pesticides &
biocides, and organically bound metals from wastewater.
How does it
chemistry is infused into a filter media that has been optimized for
the water stream being treated. The treated MYCELX filter media
instantly bonds with the targeted pollutants on contact removing 99+%
from the water in a single pass. MYCELX filter media is effective on
both semi-soluble or insoluble pollutants preventing the captured
contamination from separating, emulsifying, or releasing once
How much water
can be treated with a MYCELX filter?
MYCELX filters are totally unaffected by the amount of water passing
through them. They will only become saturated with the pollutants in
MYCELX is unique in its ability to maintain high flow
rates while removing pollutants. The filters do not increase head
pressure or plug up when they fully saturate. Once saturated, the
filter will not be able to remove any further contamination from
solution and will simply allow it to bypass.
No. It is
a non-hazardous / nontoxic material that will not dissolve or migrate
in water. It has been declared compliant to section 300.915 of the NCP
by the EPA. It has also been found by California Fish & Game to
nontoxic and is approved for oil spill cleanup.
How do you
dispose of used MYCELX filter media?
The used materials must be disposed of according to local, state and
federal regulations. The products are excellent for disposal using
incineration because of their low water absorption, low ash content
(less than .2%), and high BTU value, if non-hazardous oil or flammable
fluids are absorbed.
