The second layer contains a slightly heavier media. environmentally-safe oxidant is oxygen found in air. lighter weight particles. compared to only seconds on other systems. manganese. and hydrogen sulfide. Eliminates need for air injectors. and mechanical filtration for the reduction/removal of iron. This will begin to convert dissolved element(s) such as iron or manganese to a physical particle or nonsoluble precipitate. There are three main components that make up the Iron curtain system. advantages Over Other systems 3 It should be noted that this reaction time will also be affected by temperature. allowing water and/or air to bleed out of the aeration tank. The WQA Water Filtration Study Guide states: “The ideal filter bed would be one with large grains at the top to prevent the formation of a surface cake and to provide large pores for course particles and small grains at the bottom to entrap smaller particles. Manganese Reduction/Removal 3. The process of how the Iron Curtain System does each one of these separate procedures is the key to the successful results this product has obtained in the market place. Aeration Tank 3.

This allows time for the iron and/or manganese particles to become large enough to filter out.5 ppm of tannins will void warranty. They are: 1. the aeration pump automatically starts pumping a fresh head of air into the aeration tank for approximately 10 minutes. The third and final step is the removal of the precipitates from the water. 6. The third layer contains a much heavier media. Tested and validated by WQA under their S-200 Standard. field tests have shown that they will not be removed and will also hinder the ability of this system to effectively remove iron. The top layer is made up of large. or with buried pressure tanks without additional equipment. After approximately 4 minutes.precipitation .
