How To Size Commercial Filtration Systems For Iron & Manganese Removal?

By Gerry Bulfin CWS-VI, CEO, Clean Water Systems & Stores Inc.

Iron and manganese removal treatment systems use oxidation to convert the dissolved forms of the metals to a solid form, followed by a filtration process.

When concentrations in the source water are high (above 8 to 10 PPM) combined iron and manganese, a clarification sequence is typically required prior to filtration.  For lower levels, however a simple oxidation step using chlorination or air injection followed by filtration can be highly effective.
