Sorbster features media that simultaneously target multiple metals as well as media optimized for specific elements.

Sorbster® Media is a functionalized, enriched alumina media that covalently bonds soluble metals and other trace contaminants to its active sites. Sorbster® Media is used to remove contaminants in wastewater from a wide variety of applications including temporary remediation and long-term treatment solutions.

Features and Benefits

• Spent Sorbster® media passes the EPA TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) test and California’s WET (Waste Extraction Test) methods allowing non-hazardous disposal options.

• Sorbster® medias have an adsorption capacity up to 70 percent of its weight, extending media life and minimizing media volume.

• Adsorption is not affected by other common water ions, even at elevated concentrations.

• Sorbster® media's active and diverse chemistries allow selective capture of contaminants in a single pass, reducing CapEx requirements.

• Sorbster® media require fewer change outs than competing medias due to long effective media life.

• Sorbster® media require contact time 50 percent less than competing media, resulting in a smaller equipment footprint.

• Sorbster® media are effective over broad temperature and pH ranges.

• Sorbster® media can be deployed in a variety of ways, extending the number of applications.

• Sorbster® media have been evaluated by independent firms and consistently deliver the lowest total cost of any alternate solution.
