pH Neutralising Filter

Iron Removal Filter with automated backwash valve, for removal of up to 10 ppm iron in ground water.


Description MediaPlus Iron Removal Filter

  • Iron in rural groundwater supplies is a common problem: its concentration level ranges from 0 to 50 mg/l, while WHO recommended level is < 0.3 mg/l. The iron occurs naturally in the aquifer but levels in groundwater can be increased by dissolution of ferrous borehole and submersible pump components. Iron-bearing groundwater is often noticeably orange in colour, causing discoloration of laundry, and has an unpleasant taste, which is apparent in drinking and food preparation.  
  • Iron dissolved in groundwater is in the reduced iron II form. This form is soluble and normally does not cause any problems by itself. Iron II is oxidised to iron III on contact with oxygen in the air or by the action of iron related bacteria. Iron III forms insoluble hydroxides in water. These are rusty red and cause staining and blockage of screens, pumps, pipes, reticulation systems etc. If the iron hydroxide deposits are produced by iron bacteria then they are also sticky and the problems of stain and blockage are many times worse. The presence of iron bacteria may be indicated by rusty slime inside the pipework, reduced water flow form the bore and unpleasant odour from water pumped from the bore, slimy deposits blocking main and lateral lines, severe staining on pavements and fixtures.
  • MediaPlus  is an extremely powerful catalytic water filtration media that is designed for the removal of iron and manganese in aqueous solutions (water) without the need for potassium permanganate or chemical regeneration. The unique microporous structure ofMediaPlus efficiently removes dissolved iron to the almost undetectable levels as low as 0.001 ppm and manganese to 0.001 ppm.
  • MediaPlus acts as an oxidation catalyst with immediate oxidation and filtration of the insoluble precipitates derived from this oxidation reaction.
  • MediaPlus can also remove Arsenic, Aluminium and other heavy metals and  Hydrogen Suphfide under certain conditions. The material is part of the broad category of products deriving their physical and chemical action fromthe interaction of their metal oxide surface with the water molecules and ions in solution.

Service flow rate is dependent on actual water conditions and level of iron and other contaminants, as well as pH and level of dissolved oxygen.  Dissolved gases like Carbon Dioxide should be removed, prior to treatment in this filter. This can be achieved by aerating the water using a venturi eductor.

Low pH should be corrected prior to iron removal by using a Calcite filter, or direct dosing with Soda Ash. A calcite filter will add hardness to the water, which may require a water softener.  Soda Ash dosing can be economically achieved by using a liquid eductor, which will facilitate proportional dosing.

Soda Ash (Sodium Carbonate) will not impact on the water hardness, however low alkalinity water may be corrosive, therefor necessitating the addition of a buffer, like Sodium Bicarbonate.

Manganese Greensand

MangaeseGreensandManganese greensand is a purple-black filter media used for removal soluble iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide from well water supplies. It also has the capacity of removing radium and arsenic. It is processed from the mineral glauconite that is zeolite. Using iron exchange properties of this natural zeolite, a manganese dioxide coating is deposited on the surface of the glauconite grains. The manganese dioxide acts as a catalyst in the oxidation reduction reaction of iron and manganese. The media can be used in two methods of operations: continuous regeneration (CR) and intermittent regeneration (IR).
