Water Treatment Methods : Iron Filtration


How Does an Iron Filter Work?

Our standard iron filters contain a special iron removal media. The media catalyses the oxidation of the iron in the water which is then filtered out on the media. Backwashing of the filter removes the iron and regenerates the media. Iron removal filters are used sometimes to protect ion exchange and reverse osmosis equipment, and sometimes separately, where the unpalatable taste and staining characteristics of iron is causing a problem.

In conclusion, iron filters are self-backwashing systems  that automatically remove the trapped particles within the filter bed and washes them down the drain. This is accomplished with the electronic control valve that is mounted on top of the iron filter. This valve is controlled by a timer, that on a regular interval, initiates the backwash cycle that cleans the bed of filtration media and resets it for the next period of filtration.
