Iron removal plants can be based on different clarification media, contingent on the iron and manganese concentration, the oxygen level, CO2 content and hardness of the water.
Plant principle: First, air is injected in order to rust the iron. The oxidized iron will then precipitate on a sand filter. An MnO2 layer in the sand bed will catalyze the oxidation of remaining iron. Backwash will be done by water and by air.
Iron in well water is a mutual problem in all Counties. Iron stains are unsightly in sinks and bathtubs and Perfect Water Systems can help to eliminate this problem from your home. The first step is to have the water tested for Iron, Manganese, Hardness, and other properties. It is also advisable to have a bacterial test, as this is also shared in private water wells. Water testing in the Cork, Limerick, Tipperary, Clare and Kerry area, can be carried out by Perfect Water Systems, which is given to independent laboratories for analysis.
