ADVANCEES - Iron Removal Application - Custom skid-mounted water purification equipments - Water and Wastewater

Processes for the removal of iron must be approached with an understanding of the water source, iron and manganese concentration, chemical form, and any additional contaminants or species that require removal. In addition, the end use of the water must be considered to determine what level of treatment is required and whether iron and manganese removal should be considered as a treatment step preceding other water purification methods.

Iron and manganese are problematic in water due to their tendency to oxidize and precipitate as precipitate as insoluble oxides under a variety of conditions, causing both aesthetic and process water problems. In a potable water system iron and manganese frequently result in consumer complaints due to the metallic taste which they often impart to drinking water and beverages, and staining of laundry and porcelain fixtures.

In general the most effective steps to remove iron and manganese to achieve potable water admissible levels are:

Since every water source has different composition, we strongly recommend to perform a complete water analysis to properly size the arsenic removal solution that meet the customer’s criteria. These are the basic parameters to know in order to properly size the solution.

  • Total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • Iron content (Fe)
  • Hardness ( Ca and Mg )
  • Manganese (Mn)
  • BOD
  • Turbidity
  • Heavy metals content ( Pb ) , (Cd), Cr, (Sb) and (Mo)
  • Incoming Power
  • Incoming feed flow and source

Complete flowchart for iron removal below showing the ADVANCEES systems. This flowchart vary based on raw water quality and customer’s requirement. Many options and combinations are possible, the best solution needs to accommodate the minimum life cycle cost such as low operating cost, low maintenance, easy to operate and monitor.
