Iron is generally not hazardous to ones health and is considered a secondary or aesthetic contaminant. It can however cause a disagreeable metallic taste and also leads to the growth of smelly biofilms. Another unwanted side effect is the reddish-brown staining of fixtures and laundry.
A2V predominently uses a specialized catalytic oxidation media called DMI-65 for the removal of iron and manganese from water. Iron is oxidized from its dissolved state in an accelerated reaction that takes place in the filter bed. The precipitated metals are then captured by the filter media and later removed by back washing. A number of oxidizing agents can be used as oxidants depending on the application. These range from simple aeration through to powerful oxidants such as ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide.
DMI-65 is capable of removing manganese, hydrogen sulfide, arsenic and other dangerous heavy metals under certain conditions.
