Iron Filtration & Iron Removal
Iron is a common water contaminant. It can be difficult to remove because it may change its valence state that is change from the water soluble ferrous state (Fe2+) to the insoluble Ferric State (Fe3+). When Oxygen or an oxidizing agent is introduced, ferrous states changes to ferric which is insoluble and it precipitates, leading to a rusty (red – brown) appearance in water. This change can occur when deep well water is pumped into a distribution system where it adsorbs oxygen. Ferric iron has to be removed before it destroys valves, piping all other water treatment equipment and water-using devices.
- Remove Iron
- Total Suspended Solids
Land & Water Technology Iron Filtration Advantages:
- Low operational costs
- Chemical free process
- Media replacement every 5 – 7 years
*Individual results may vary from bore location, water quality and other contaminants.
