Iron/Sulfur Filters, Ultraviolet and Colloidal Clay Systems

.

Iron/Sulfur Filters

We have many different systems for treating Iron/Sulfur. It all depends upon the content of each in your water. Some are simple one or two tank systems that require nothing more than an occasional backwash. If your Iron/Sulfur content is really high, the system could be a little more complex. But in most cases we are able to treat both without the use of chemicals and/or maintenance.

How The Iron Breaker III Works:

Iron Breaker III

The Iron Breaker III stores a “bubble” of air, compressed by your well pressure, within the media tank. As your water passes thru the air, the iron or sulfur is converted to a particle, which is then trapped by the catalytic filter media in the tank while the air “bubble” is gradually consumed by the passing water. For regeneration, the unit first “backwashes” itself, removing any iron or sulfur particles it has trapped. The system then replenishes the “air bubble” by drawing in atmosphere, temporarily emptying the tank of all water and transferring oxygen molecules into and on the surface of the media bed where all oxidation occurs. The system then returns to the “service” position, again filtering your water.

Ultraviolet Systems

An Ultraviolet System is an economical way to rid your water of bacteria. There are however, certain rules that must be followed in order to have the system work the way it was intended. The water that is being treated must be free of Iron, Sulfur and be relatively soft. If it is not, the internal glass sleeve will be coated over and render the system useless in a short period of time. UV Systems are rated on gallons per minute. So a test on your well to determine your well pumping rate is necessary to prescribe the proper size. A five micron prefilter is recommended before the UV. Annual changing of the UV lamp is required.

Colloidal Clay/Silt

At Hague Quality Water of CNY, we have developed a great alternative to flocculation (aluminum sulfate treatment). Introducing the Model 130 Automatic Backwashing Cartridge Filter. This system employs a pleated membrane backwashable cartridge with an absolute rating of .65, .45 or .20 micron. The rating of the cartridge gives the Model 130 the ability to filter particulate contaminants that both media type and nominal cartridge type filtration fail to trap. These contaminants include colloidal iron, red clay, gray clay, silt, and virtually any contaminant that has the ability to effectively backwash. By removing these contaminants water with very high levels of turbidity can be transformed into crystal clear water with 0 NTU. The Model 130 also is capable of removing cysts such as cryptosporidium and giardia lamblia.

The Model 130 has a programmable timer system that coordinates the backwash process. The engineering of this automated process provides an uninterrupted water supply to the household. The backwash capability allows for an extended cartridge life of typically 12 – 18 months.
