Air Catalyst Filtration
Oxidation prior to filtration is an effective way to remove iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) from your water. This method has been around for decades in one form or another. The oxidation of iron can be done in many ways; however, we prefer to use air over chemical. We inject the air into the water supply with an air injection pump or venturi. One injected the water will pass through a contact vessel where the iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide will be allowed to come out of solution for removal through the filter.
Our iron filters will continue to filter iron until a set amount of days or gallons is achieved at which point the filter will automatically regenerate itself ridding the bed of iron and preparing for another filtering cycle.
Our filters use Clack Valve heads and fiberglass media tanks which are made from high performance composite material with FRP filament winding. Our valves and tanks come in a variety of sizes for any residential, commercial, agriculture or industrial application. These units are automatically regenerated by programing the valve head to a set amount of days or gallons.
The Flex-Lite FLU tank is made from a unique 3-piece internal construction that allows for consistent engineered dome profiles and integrally bonded connections that lead to longer tank life. Its heavy-duty base is molded out of ABS for maximum strength and durability. And, it has a removable schedule 80 PVC bottom connection that can be "accessorized" for increased installation flexibility making this an excellent choice of tank to be used for air contact.
Mazzei injectors require differential pressure to create suction. The injector’s outlet pressure (backpressure) must be sufficiently lower than the inlet pressure. We control this by building a bypass around the injector with a throttle control allowing us to use your own water pressure to inject the air into the system. For most models, significant suction occurs with 25-30% pressure differential.
