Suspended Solids Removal Iron/Manganese Removal Activated Carbon
|Most waters contain the minerals calcium and magnesium which are commonly known as hardness salts. The use of a water softener removes these hard water minerals replacing them with soft sodium salts. Contaminants within water can be removed by passing the water through a bed of specialised media.
As filtration proceeds, the filter bed gradually becomes fouled such that the filter requires backwashing. Flow through the bed is reversed via an automatic multi-port valve, whereby the accumulated debris is discharged to drain. The filter is automatically returned to service when the backwashing is completed.
