1. This media may be used in either pressurized or gravity fed water treatment systems.
2. Birm® acts as an insoluble catalyst to boost the reaction between dissolved oxygen (D.O.) and iron compounds.
3. Media Regeneration is not required
4. Iron removal efficiency is very high
5. Only periodic backwashing is required
6. Resilient material with a long life and wide temperature range.

Birm Media is an efficient and economical media for reduction of dissolved iron and magnesium compounds from raw water supplies. Birm is not consumed in the iron removal process.
