PM-199®

Organophilic Clay Filter Media

Organoclay® PM-199 is a proprietary granular adsorption media effective in removing oils,
greases other non-aqueous phase liquids (NA PL) and other dissolved high molecular weight/
low solubility organics.

Applications
• Organophilic Filtration Media: as flow through media for treating groundwater and leachate.
• Organoclay® Bulk Capping: provides subaqueous chemical isolation of contaminated
  sediment NA PL seeps in waterways.
• Solidification/Stabilization additive: improves hydraulic and leachability performance of
  pozzolanic mixes by adsorbing NAPL and dissolved low solubility organics

Features & Benefits
• As filtration media used in series prior to activated carbon vessel, it extends life and
  adsorbency of activated carbon by removal of larger molecular organics that can cause fouling.
• Operates in stand-alone mode for treatment of oil contaminated waters or steam condensates.
• High adsorption capacity of oils, greases and other NA PL

PM-100™ and PM-199™


PM-100 is a chemically modified clay/anthracite filtration media that reliably removes oil, grease, and other low-solubility, high-molecular weight organics from wastewater.
This mixed media is designed for flow-through systems.
Low-solubility organics are adsorbed onto the product surface while clean water passes through Can be used in three different modes:
• As a stand-alone treatment for removal of low-solubility organics from water.
• As a post-treatment to polish a wastewater stream
• As a pre-treatment to increase the overall efficiency of GAC by preventing surface pores from    `being blinded by oils, greases, and other less water-soluble organics PM-199 is a granular, 
 100% organophilic clay media.

It is normally only used in our high efficiency cartridge systems. The PM-100 and PM-199 can extend the life of GAC by as much as 500%, resulting in higher carbon sorption capacity
and more effective and consistent removal of heavy metals.
