How It Works
In a specifically designed sequence, processes the water using a patented mass transfer tube, multiple oxidation processes & multi-media depth filtration.
Mass Transfer Tube
Aeration is the process of mixing air into water, causing dissolved materials such as iron and manganese to oxidize so that they can be readily filtered. A patented mass transfer tube activated by a flow switch which allows the system to oxidize in real time, so that the aeration process occurs when water is in demand. In other systems the aeration process is only activated when the well pump is running, which may not necessarily cycle on when water is flowing to the home, and as a result not all the water is aerated.
The mass transfer tube injects air directly into the water and agitates it, creating countless, micro air bubbles. These micro air bubbles provide increased surface contact area, resulting in more rapid and thorough oxidation.
After being injected with air via the mass transfer tube, the water enters into the aeration tank where it undergoes a second oxidation process. Our aeration tank is equal in size to the media tank to further increase oxidation as opposed to systems using a smaller aeration tank, which reduces the contact time between oxygen and water.
In the aeration tank harmful gases (such as hydrogen sulfide, VOC’s, radon, and methane) are expelled. Unlike many other aeration tanks, the aeration tank is fitted with an air vent on top which allows for continuous, real time air exchange. There is no need to drain the aeration tank.
The aeration process is designed to minimize the clogging of valves and reduction in water pressure.
Filtration Tank Housing Depth Filtration Media
Upon exiting the aeration tank the water enters the filtration tank which incorporates a proprietary depth filtration media package. The utilizes multiple different media with different filtering properties that are layered in a unique manner. It allows the water to saturate throughout the entire media package. In other system designs once the top level of media has been saturated with pollutants the water can no longer flow all the way through the entire media bed, preventing effective filtration.
The proprietary blend of media used in thus system will remove high levels of iron, manganese, sediment, and other contaminants to extremely low levels, providing clean, fresh water. An additional benefit is that during the backwashing cycle the media package will automatically resettle in the same configuration, maintaining the integrity of the filtration process.
