Water Filtration Media Organoclay

HS-200 SDS


HS-200 Organoclay Series

Pure Organoclay

The HS-200 is used to remove oil, heavy metals, and similar organics from water. The key to successful water treatment and water filtration is selecting the right combination of media and hardware. For treatment of hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and other organic contaminants, the optimal solution is efficient oil and water separation follow by the HS-200 series.

The HS-200 series can absorb up to 70% of its own weight in hydrocarbons, its life inside a still bed canister is much longer than that of other filtration media such as granular activated carbon. The HS-200 series:

• Does not swell upon water exposure;

• Has more active ingredients per cubic foot than other ogranoclays;

• Is cost effective and environmentally sound technology.

• Can be custom blended; and 

• Prolongs life of activated carbon and resins thereby reducing costs and increasing efficiency.

Hydrosil’s HS-200 for liquid phase filtration shall be 8 x 14 or 14 x 40 mesh zeolite impregnated with n-hexadecyl-n,n,n-trimethylammonium chloride. The density of the product shall be 57-59 pounds per cubic foot.

HS-200 Series Versatility

  • Free Standing Mode: Used on its own, HS-200 series can be loaded in drums for use as an efficient stillbed filtration medium. Other applications include tank cleaning, oil spill mitigation, and lining/capping projects.
  • Pre-Treatment Mode: HS-200 Series can be used upstream to enhance the performance and extend the useful life of other filtration processes and media such as reverse osmosis, activated carbon and resins.
  • Post-Treatment Mode: HS-200 Series utilized downstream of an oil-water separator or coalesce filter, has the ability to act as an effective cleaning and polishing agent.
