Aeration Tank 3. 3. Hydrogen Sulfide Reduction/Removal IrOn curtaIn The advantages of a multi-media bed are: 1. 3. 7. No floats or air volume controls to regulate air volume in aeration tank which “foul” from iron. The third layer contains a much heavier media. Much higher service flow rates per square foot than other iron filters.S. The third and final step is the removal of the precipitates from the water. Caking of the bed and breakthrough of turbidity are virtually eliminated. the air recharge and air bleed off valves remain open for an additional 4 minutes to allow any excess air and/or water to bleed off to drain. 4. This reaction time may also be affected by the presence of organic material (such as tannins). The least expensive. Higher degree of clarity because of the heavier. The Iron Curtain System introduces air into the aeration tank and bleeds off the old head of air automatically. or with buried pressure tanks without additional equipment. There are three main components that make up the Iron curtain system. Patent #B1 5. 9. This allows time for the iron and/or manganese particles to become large enough to filter out. Higher service flow rates. 10. Operation of aeration Pump 1 2 The first step in any oxidizing process is to bring the raw water into intimate contact with a strong oxidant. Principle of Operation The Iron Curtain System uses a three step process of oxidation. and/or hydrogen sulfide.5 ppm of tannins will void warranty. finer filter media in the bottom. 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. 110V aeration pump to recharge aeration tank. Aeration/precipitation/multi-media filtration for: A special Type A filter also provides pH adjustment on water supplies with a pH from 6. allowing water and/or air to bleed out of the aeration tank.096. The fifth layer is a special support bed to retain filter media so it does not pass through the distribution system and allows evenly distributed flow of backwash water.The fourth layer contains an even heavier media. when consisting of a single media is not possible. 6. such an ideal bed.

Tested and validated by WQA under their S-200 Standard. the way to solve this problem is to use layers of media. the warmer the water the faster the reaction. 8. the second step in this three-step process of oxidation . Water sprays through a regulated head of air to have contact with the oxidant. After approximately 4 minutes. or micronizers. Better filtration results. If tannins are present. and hydrogen sulfide. Can be used on shared wells. field tests have shown that they will not be removed and will also hinder the ability of this system to effectively remove iron.precipitation . 2. both the air recharge valve and the air bleed off valve open. This allows the entire depth of the bed to be used as a filter. Eliminates need for air injectors. Installation of this system on water supplies with more than 0. lighter weight particles. The aeration tank with the Iron Curtain System allows several minutes of contact time at the rated service flows. Iron Reduction/Removal 2. They are: 1. the aeration pump automatically starts pumping a fresh head of air into the aeration tank for approximately 10 minutes. 5. 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. compared to only seconds on other systems. 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. municipal water supplies. After the pump shuts off. Uses no chemicals or salt. environmentally-safe oxidant is oxygen found in air. 4. This also allows for longer filter runs and faster flow rates. Multi-Media Depth Filter The standard Iron Curtain System uses five layers of filter media. Two-tank system consisting of a pressurized aeration tank and multi-media depth filter. precipitation.
