Water treatments: deferrisation

The process that is carried out in a deferrisation (iron removal) system serves to remove iron and manganese from the water, which is typical of well water. Removing these elements from water we can obtain liquids that are suitable for certain industrial uses or for drinking. At, we design and build deferrisation systems. Contact us for an initial consultation.

How does the deferrisation process work?

Iron is the most commonly found metal in the earth and it is also harmful to health, causes aesthetic problems (yellowish-red colour) and gives water a bad taste. The deferrisation process consists in the removal of iron from the water using a filtration process (iron removing filter) which combines the mechanical action of quartzite with the catalytic action of pyrolusite. This both improves the potability of the water and makes it more suitable for certain industrial uses.


Processes integrated with deferrisation

The deferrisation process can be integrated with other treatments. For example, preliminary oxidation of the iron using hypochlorite also disinfects the water, while catalytic filtration also entails the filtration of other suspended substances.


Adaptability of a deferrisation system

Deferrisation system for work sites

We can build deferrisation systems that can be used on work sites and then easily removed.
