Water Treatment : Colloidal Iron

What is Colloidal Iron?

Colloidal iron is an organic form of iron that can combine with other naturally occurring organic materials such as humic acids (tannins). It can give the water a yellow to brownish hue and is often found in shallow groundwater wells, surface water or groundwater under the influence of surface water.


The particle size of colloidal iron is very small — in the micron and submicron size ranges — compared with other forms, and it has a surface area and charge that will prevent it from being removed in the same way that Iron (Fe) is. Consequently, colloidal iron is extremely difficult to remove and is basically non-filterable with typical media type treatment such as our Iron Max. 

Colloidal iron and will require strong oxidation, usually by injection of chlorine, ozone or hydrogen peroxide followed by filtration (The Iron Max) to remove the oxidized iron. Activated carbon filtration may be also needed to remove any residual chlorine. Note: Colloidal iron will require longer contact time and a separate retention tank will be required.
