IRON REMOVAL MEDIA

Iron and manganese are undesirable in groundwater because of their effect on the appearance and taste of the water, their ability to cause staining, and the health effects of manganese.Iron and manganese occur naturally in water, especially groundwater. Neither of the elements causes adverse heath effects; they are, in fact, essential to the human diet. However, water containing excessive amounts of iron and manganese can stain clothes, discolor plumbing fixtures, and sometimes add a "rusty" taste and look to the water.

Oxidation involves the introduction of an oxidizing agent which chemically reacts with the iron or manganese to form an insoluble particle which can then be physically filtered out through a media bed.

Oxidation can be carried out one of the following methods:

  • aeration - blowing/spraying air through the water
  • addition of dissolved chemical oxidants - chlorine, chlorine dioxide and potassium permanganate (KMnO4)
  • adsorption - greensand media and activated carbon

The process of oxidation followed by filtration is fairly easy and is often the treatment of choice. The use of ion exchange resins for the removal of iron and manganese has limited application due to the requirement that the contaminants be in dissolved form and at very low levels. This is due to the tendency of oxygen to react with the iron and managanes and therefore, increase the potential for plugging and buildup on the resin surface. Iron fouling is a common, and sometimes, irreversible problem with ion exchange treatment.

BirmMedia is a black catalytic media used for removing soluble iron, manganese, hydrogen sulfide, arsenic and radium from water supplies. The media has unique characteristics in addition to its catalytic property which facilitates the oxidation reduction reaction of iron and manganese.  Birm Media can be used at high operating temperatures and high differential pressures without breakdown of the media and is classified as a “high rate” media where the filters can be run at very high linear velocities with excellent results. Unlike other medias, it does not require extensive pre-conditioning. Birm Media effectively removes iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide from natural waters. Water for industrial and domestic uses must be substantially iron and manganese free. In many countries it is a requirement that water for municipal use should not contain iron and manganese concentrations of greater than 0.2 and 0.05 ppm respectively, and preferably below0.05 and 0.02 ppm. In certain industries like pulp and paper mills, tanneries, textile plants, dye houses and laundries, it is almost impossible to operate with iron or manganese bearing waters since they would produce objectionable stains, streaks, spots and off-colors on many manufactured products. Iron and manganese also foul ion exchange resins. Hence, it is necessary to include a pretreatment stage in most ion exchange processes.

We are amongst the reputed manufacturers of iron removal filters, used for removal of dissolved iron, present in the form of lower oxides. Designed in line with international quality standards, these filters are used for removing both oxidized iron and iron present in solution. Compact size plants have filter media that are capable of removing small amounts of hydrogen sulfide.

With practical upper limit of iron concentration for these filters being 5 ppm, the filter has three functions:

  • It acts as an efficient filter in removing oxidized iron and sediment

  • It acts as a compact catalyst in augmenting the union of oxygen and dissolved iron in water to form oxidized (filterable) iron (the water must contain at least 0.1 ppm oxygen for every 0.7 ppm of iron)

  • In case where the water has little or no oxygen the media will give up some of its own store of oxygen to oxidize iron

In order to restore the media, it must be periodically regenerated with potassium permanganate (depending upon oxygen content of water). To facilitate regeneration, optional regenerant systems are available. For efficient application, the pH must be at least 6.8 and temperature should not exceed 120° F. To aid in the oxidation of iron, the chlorine or potassium permanganate may be fed into the water ahead of the iron filter.

Manganite (greensand) is a black filter medium used for removing soluble iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide from well water supplies. It also has the capability of removing radium and arsenic. It is processed from the mineral zeolite ( a light weight granular core) with a manganese dioxide coating is deposited on the surface of the mineral grains. Each grain has a finite amount of manganese dioxide coating it. Unlike in-situated media, there is no need for any extensive pre-conditioning of the filter media to try to apply a coating. The filter media is ready to install in the filter and be regenerated.

The manganese dioxide coating acts as a catalyst in the oxidation reduction reaction of iron and manganese. The media can be used in two methods of operation: continuous regeneration (cr) and intermittent regeneration (ir). The cr method is recommended for predominantly iron bearing waters with or without the presence of manganese, and the ir method is recommended for use on ground waters in which manganese predominates. Additionally, manganese greensand is listed under ansi/nsf standard 61 for portable water treatment components.
