The purest magnesium oxide now in the form of Trappsorb is available in the water treatment industry. The Trappsorb produced by Watch Water is 99.99% pure MgO + CaO free-flowing uniform bead’s. 

Trappsorb is a porous, amorphous form of Magnesium(MgO). Although it has the same chemical composition as granular products, is radically different to other MgO- based materials due to its unique outer surface and structure, it is composed of a unique manufacturing process giving it’s uniformity and Macroscope pores. As opposed to granular MgO, Trappsorb have larger pores with a wide range of diameters. To ensure drinking Water Quality, all Adsorber division products are certified by WQA to meet ANSI/NSF 61 standard.


  • To Filter out suspended solids.
  • Due to its high alkalinity, it is easy to control the pH without using any chemicals.
  • Remove silica effectively compared to Ion exchange Resin’s and Membranes.
  • Remove Phosphorus effectively compared to any other technology available in the Market.
  • Remove CO2 and H2S including Ammoniain the water or wastewater
  • Controlling Corrosion of the Municipal and Utilities network without adding any Corrosion inhibitors
  • The simplest process of enriching water with Mg2+ ions to be salinated and softened water
  • Solve all scaling problem’s in wastewater tanks with its long-lasting alkalinity/pH control. Easy and safe to handle since.
