Dolomite is an anhydrous carbon mineral consisting of calcium and magnesium – CaMg (CO3)2. It offers 21,7 kg of calcium and 13 kg of magnesium per 100 kg. Dolomite can be dissolved in slightly acidic water.
Dolomite is used as a decorative stone and raw material for cement production. It is also often used in place of calcite – fossil mineral with similar characteristics – in the steel and iron production process, as a means of removing impurities, helping to maximize the final usable mineral.
- Decoration, as natural element
- Gardening, as a regulator of pH in the soil as well as a source of magnesium
- Substrate in seawater aquaria – pH regulator
- Catalyst in biomass gasification – tar elimination – (calcined type)
- Specialised industrial uses as an element in various product mixes
Dolomite by STROUMBOULIS
STROUMBOULIS collaborates with one of the most established Manufacturer brands in the field of water treatment products, the German brand EVERS GmbH & Co.KG, with the product EVERZIT ® Dol.
EVERZIT ® Dol is a thermal processing product, produced by natural dolomite (CaCO3 . MgCO3). It is mainly used for regulating pH in ground waters. Processed Dolomite is formed through thermal decomposition, accurately controlled so that only the magnesium carbonate of Dolomite transforms into magnesium oxide. The derived filtering product is significantly more powerful than pure calcium carbonate or even natural dolomite.
Features and benefits of EVERZIT ® Dol
- Homogenous porous grains with rough-textured surface
- Natural mineral refined by purely thermal treatment
- High reactivity
- Easy to handle
- Problem-free transition when EVERZIT® Dol replaces similar media used in existing filter systems
EVERZIT® Dol is used in single-layer filters or dual media filters for removal of dissolved aggressive carbon dioxide. Neutralization takes place up to attainment of calcium carbonate/carbonic acid equilibrium. Besides neutralization the process also realizes increased water hardness.
Additional beneficial effects of filtration with EVERZIT® Dol include:
Removal of suspended particulates
Iron and manganese removal
Increased water hardness due to mineralization with MgCO3 und CaCO3
EVERZIT ® Dol is fully compliant with the European Standard EN 1017 for treatment of water intended for human consumption.
STROUMBOULIS offer the Dolomite EVERZIT ® Dol with all its certifications as well as with the flexibility – high quality service in terms of availability – deliveries to our Clients.

USEFUL INFORMATION BY STROUMBOULIS:
4 KEY ΑΤΤΕΝΤΙΟΝ POINTS IN THE PROVISION & USE OF DOLOMITE
- The calcium and magnesium content, density and pH are the key selection criteria for Dolomite Filter Media.
- Each use or application requires a specific granular size, with apart from nominal limits, also depends on the grain size distribution (distribution curve).
- Dolomite must be fully compliant with the EN 1017 Standard, so that it can be used as a filtering material for potable water.
- In cases of bulk products delivery or those contained in big bags, their quantity should be checked upon delivery.
