Iron Treatment Systems

Iron Treatment Systems

Reduce iron and manganese & Eliminate red staining

Pallas iron and manganese filters remove high levels of iron and manganese from your water and are often used in conjunction with other Pallas water treatment systems to provide a total water solution.

There are different media which are used in the filters depending our water quality.   Filpumps can help you chose the best media for your water


Effects of high iron and manganese

Iron and manganese deposit in treatment and distribution systems and can also interfere with the efficiency of UV disinfection by coating treatment units. Iron and manganese suspensions cause aesthetic problems including metallic taste and discolouration of water fittings and laundry The UK drinking water quality regulations include national standards for iron and manganese of 200 μg/l and 50 μg/l, respectively. Iron and manganese can be removed by filtration”  reference: technical manual

“What sort of improvements might be needed ? - Installation of an appropriate water treatment system to ensure satisfactory microbiological quality and where required, water filters (to remove iron, nitrates, manganese etc)”   reference: DWI consumer advice leaflet

How does it work?

 Water flows down through the media and then up through the ‘riser’ tube in the middle of the vessel. As the water travels through the media the iron and manganese are oxidised bringing the metals out of solution and trapping them so only clean clear water flows out to service. These systems also act as sediment filters trapping any natural turbidity. Some media adsorb the soluble iron and manganese by ion exchange and then use brine to regenerate the media.
