Iron can be de-gelatinized ?
Water accompanies us in every aspect of our lives, while its composition has a huge impact on its quality. If the water has an inadequate color or a disturbing smell, it is undoubtedly worth examining its quality and think about using a suitable de-ironizer to be able to take full advantage of what it has to offer us.
Deionizers what are they for and what are they actually ?
Deionizers are special devices that are designed to remove iron from water. They are mainly used to improve the quality of drinking water and protect the water system from contamination or complete destruction.
Water is composed of various minerals. Among other things, it contains iron, which in inadequate amounts can be harmful. Iron levels range from trace amounts to as much as tens of milligrams per liter of water, but should not exceed 0.2 mg Fe/l. Too much iron has a very negative impact on water quality, and the consequences of exceeding it are real and visible. Among the most characteristic are metallic taste and smell of water, turbidity and its yellow or orange color.
Real pros and cons of using iron removers !
The first key aspect of using a water filter is to improve the quality of drinking water, removing excess iron from it, eliminating unpleasant taste and odor, and changing the color of the water. Another plus that is not visible to the naked eye at first, but can have long-term positive effects on our health is the effect of filtered water on our teeth, gums and complexion. Excess iron in the water can cause yellowing of the complexion and teeth, and can even have a negative impact on the quality of enamel.
Another benefit of using de-ironizers is the protection of water systems – iron, deposited in pipes and other system components, can lead to corrosion and damage. Iron removers also help prevent scale buildup, which will affect not only the quality but also the wealth of your wallet, as we will not be exposed to frequent repairs. It is also worth mentioning that the quality of laundry and prepared meals can be affected. The taste and aromatic qualities of coffee, as well as tea, can be significantly improved.
From the point of view of ecology, it also has very positive implications, since filtering is done by using water, no chemicals are used for this.
For some people, the downside of using iron separators may be the need to maintain the equipment in good working order. In some cases, there may also be additional costs associated with the purchase of preparations or maintenance of the equipment. The downside may also be the size of the device, as you need to set aside a space that will have all the necessary connections.
Looking at the number of positives, it can be said that these are devices that fully perform their function and can have a very positive impact on the operation in the household, as well as in large industrial areas.
Types of iron remover in the BD series
- Iron remover
- Iron remover with KmnO₄
- Iron remover with RX107 Aeration valve
- Iron remover Parallel RX107 Aeration valve
There are different types of deionizers, which are also designed to perform other functions. The selection of the device should not be random, but supported by water tests and professional advice. A poorly selected device will not fully perform its functions.
Different types of deionizer in the BD series: with control head and compressor, Pararelle type or greensand bed deionizer (KmnO₄). The devices treat water by removing iron and manganese with specialized deposits. The individually programmed and sized de-ironerator measures the volume of water and regenerates the filter medium by flushing out iron and manganese deposits.
Another type is water treatment stations, this is the best solution for water coming from own water intakes, such as deep wells, among others. Water treatment stations are selected individually based on water tests, contain a softening bed and remove iron and manganese.
It is also important to use the right amount of de-gelatinizers and monitor the effectiveness of the device, since an excess of these substances can also lead to negative health or environmental effects. Therefore, it is recommended to carefully read the manufacturer’s instructions and possibly consult a professional before using de-ironizers.
In summary, there are many ways to remove iron from water, and in fact, the right choice of technology, as well as the size of the device, can translate into minimized cost of use, longevity, and provide the expected water treatment effect for years to come.
