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
