Greensand Price Increase

The manufacturers of Manganese Greensand have just notified us that the price of Greensand will be going up on June 1, 2007. The price of GreensandPlus (TM) will not.

Manganese Greensand is used to remove soluble iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from well water supplies. Greensand has been an industry standard for over 50 years. Manganese Greensand bulletin.

GreensandPlus is the second generation of greensand. GreensandPlus is more rugged than the original but has identical operating characteristics. GreensandPlus is a purple-black filter media used for removing soluble iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, arsenic, and radium from well water supplies. GreensandPlus bulletin.

GreensandPlus has the same effective size, uniformity coefficient, density, weight, capacity, backwash and pressure drop curve. Therefore, it can be used as an exact substitute for Manganese Greensand. In addition, GreensandPlus is much more resistant to attrition from high differential pressure, and works well on waters that are low in silica, dissolved solids and total hardness. It can also be used in water over 70 degrees F without any degradation.

Greensand is a mined product and as many users of Greensand know, it is occasionally in short supply. Unlike Manganese Greensand, GreensandPlus is not dependent on the mining of glauconite and this results in reduced production time. Greensand Plus is readily available for purchase.

All Manganese Greensand shipped after June 1st will be subject to the new prices. Contact Res-Kem for availability and current and future pricing.

Res-Kem manufactures systems using greensand and GreensandPlus to remove soluble iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from well water supplies for municipal, commercial, and industrial applications.
