How To Conduct A Pilot Test For Iron & Manganese Removal From Groundwater Using Manganese Dioxide Filter Media

There are various treatment processes that are used to remove iron and manganese from ground water for potable water supplies.  While there are various less common treatment methods used (such as ion exchange and ultra-filtration), most treatment systems for iron oxidize the ferrous state of iron to a ferric state so the solid particles can then be filtered out.   

A very effective approach uses high purity manganese dioxide filter media.    A simple pilot test can be set up site to quantify the flow rate and chlorine dosing requirement, as well as verify removal and loading rates of iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide.
