Titan-Ox™ systems are designed to backwash periodically to eject trapped sediment and particulates and to eliminate media channeling which could reduce the performance of your system. Accordingly, the control valve is connected to a drain and the backwash water together with the rejected contaminants are simply discharged to the drain during the backwash process. The backwash is controlled by the Fleck 5800 SXT digital control valve and is generally programmed to occur in the middle of the night (fully adjustable) when you are not likely to be using any water. In a typical residential application, the MetSorb media should be replaced roughly every 7 years to maintain optimal performance. Our Certified Water Technicians can give you specific guidance related to the expected media life for your specific application based on your water chemistry.
How Titan-Ox™ Works
The Titan-Ox™ system consists of a treatment tank, backwash control valve, and a highly specialized media called MetSorb HMRG which adsorbs both pentavalent (Arsenic V / Arsenic 5 / Arsenate) and trivalent (Arsenic III / Arsenic 3 / Arsenite) forms of arsenic, as well as a wide range of heavy metals from water. The active ingredient in the MetSorb media is titanium dioxide. Similar to other metal oxide media, MetSorb reduces arsenic and heavy metals by permanently adsorbing them (binding them to the media). Adsorption efficiently reduces arsenic and heavy metals in a wide variety of water conditions, however, higher removal rates will generally occur at lower pH levels.
MetSorb Media - the heart of the Titan-Ox™ system...
- minimal backwash requirements reduces water waste
- will not "dump" arsenic upon media exhaustion
- spent media meets requirements for non-hazardous landfill disposal
- does not require chemical regeneration
- low cost per gallon treated - long media life in most applications
- less affected by competing ions than competitive technologies
- made in the U.S.A.
Independent testing consistently ranks MetSorb as a leading media for the removal of arsenic. It has a higher capacity and a lower level of ion interference than competitive iron and alumina based media. MetSorb's extremely fast kinetics allow highly effective removal with contact times of only 1.5 to 3 minutes.
The Titan-Ox™ system will backwash periodically to ensure that the media bed is not subject to channeling which could reduce its effectiveness. The backwash will also remove any particulate matter trapped in the media. The backwash process is controlled automatically by the digital control valve included with the system. The valve is pre-programmed with the correct backwash interval for you. Once Titan-Ox™ is set-up, it is a very low maintenance treatment system. The backwash will only run for 10 minutes every 2-3 weeks. It is programmed to occur at night when water is not being used. Since the arsenic and heavy metals are permanently bound to the media, the backwash discharge does not contain concentrated contaminant levels. Accordingly, the discharge water can be sent to sanitary septic/sewer systems without concern. Similarly, since the arsenic is permanently adsorbed, spent media is landfill safe. To verify safe disposal, spent media has passed TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) testing.
MetSorb has a large, but finite capacity to adsorb contaminants and eventually needs to be replaced. The life of the media bed depends on several factors including arsenic level, heavy metal levels, water usage, and water chemistry. Certain contaminants reduce the life and effectiveness of MetSorb media. Iron and manganese should be reduced to less than 0.3 mg/l and 0.05 mg/l, respectively, through appropriate pre-treatment to maximize media life. pH should not exceed 8.3. Elevated levels of silica and/or sulfate may reduce media life depending on other water chemistry conditions (particularly if the water is soft). If proper pre-treatment for iron and manganese is undertaken (if necessary), media lifespan of 7 to 12 years, or even longer, is very common. Our staff would be pleased to assist you in estimating the expected life of the media in your Titan-Ox™ system - please call us toll free at 1-866-376-2690 to discuss.
Given the potential seriousness of arsenic and heavy metal contamination of drinking water, follow-up water testing after installation and on at least a quarterly basis thereafter is recommended to monitor for breakthrough. We supply a free basic monitoring test kit with each system that will enable you to do your initial follow-up testing. Additional test kits can be purchased separately.
For arsenic levels exceeding 60 parts per billion or 0.060 mg/l, a lead/lag configuration may be recommended depending on your water chemistry. Please discuss with one of our certified water treatment technicians by calling toll-free 1-866-376-2690.

Installation / Manuals
We have designed our Titan-Ox™ systems for ease of installation. We provide a bypass valve with each system. The bypass valve has male 1" NPT threaded fittings. If your pipe diameter is different, you can connect to the bypass with simple adapters available at any hardware store. The drain line connection is female 1/2" NPT.
Titan-Ox™ is normally installed after treatment for iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, tannin and sediment (if applicable), but before any disinfection equipment such as a UV sterilizer or chlorinator (if applicable). Please contact us to discuss the location of your Titan-Ox™ system relative to your water softener if you have one.
We recommend that Titan-Ox™ systems be installed by a licensed plumber, however, your warranty is valid as long as your system is installed in accordance with local plumbing codes and the Owner's Manual.
