Until recently, the most common solution for
problem iron and sulfur water involved the use of harsh chemicals and
complicated equipment requiring
regular care and service by the homeowner or water treatment professional.
chemical free Iron sulfur treatment, now offers the natural solution for removing
iron and sulfur. A proven, patented technology that uses natures own
oxidation process to eliminate iron and sulfur without chemicals, without
air compressors, without aerators and without external venturis. Using
natures own oxidation process, leaving you with fresh, clean, odor free
water throughout your home.
Iron and Sulphur are
two of the most common elements found in nature, while both are extremely
important for every day life, both are a nuisance in water and can cost
you money and cause frustration.
Iron staining is a common problem in homes today. Iron staining on
fixtures, as well as dingy clothes and sometimes even hair will turn a
reddish orange color. Iron bacteria may be present in water with iron,
creating a slimy build up in standing water (such as your toilet tank) and
can smell like rotting vegetation. Sulfur is easily detected by the
presence of a “rotten egg” odor, and is sometimes associated with
of your water using appliances will lead longer lives. Dishwashers,
automatic washers and, of course, your water heater will benefit from
having reduced iron and sulfur, adding years to the life of major
appliances and postponing expensive repair and replacement.
chemical free iron treatment works:
The Nelsen AIO Filter System, as
a single tank system, is an efficient and cost effective system for the
removal of iron and sulphur. The Nelsen AIO maintains an "air
pocket" in the top of the tank while the system is in service. As the
water passes thru the air pocket, iron and sulphur are oxidized.
Additionally, dissolved oxygen is added to the water. The Nelsen AIO
filter media bed then removes the iron and sulphur from the water.
free iron sulfur treatment stores a bubble of air, compressed by your well pressure,
within the media tank. As your water passes thru the air, the iron or
sulfur is converted to a particle which is then trapped by the AIO
filter media in the tank while the air bubble is gradually consumed by the
passing water. For
regeneration, the unit first backwashes itself, removing any iron or
sulfur particles it has trapped. The system then replenishes the air
bubble by drawing in atmosphere, temporarily emptying the tank of all
water and transferring oxygen molecules into and on the surface of the
media bed where all oxidation occurs. The system then returns to the
service position, again filtering your water.
The Nelsen AIO
can remove up to 8 ppm Hydrogen Sulfide and up to 7 ppm Iron. A daily
backwash will remove accumulated iron and replenish the filter media bed.
The regeneration process also adds a fresh air pocket to the system.
The Nelsen AIO
system comes equipped with a Fleck 2510SXT air injection control head that
automatically backwashes the system daily to clean the media and flush
everything down the drain. By utilizing a patented piston in the control
valve, the Nelsen AIO™ is able to put the whole oxidation process inside
one tank, keeping maintenance costs and down time to a minimum.
The systems include 3/4"
by-pass valve, Structural mineral tank and all necessary media and support
bed for individual application.
