Treating Iron Content in Water

Treating Iron Content in Water Why treat Iron content in Water? Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn) in water sources can become a serious operational issue in downstream process equipment. Depending on the concentration of the Fe and Mn in the water source, this could lead to an aesthetic (lower concentrations) or a chronic health (higher concentrations) issue when water is utilised as a potable water source. High Fe and Mn concentrations are generally not seen when dealing with surface water sources, however, exceptions can occur. High naturally occurring Fe and Mn concentrations are predominant in groundwater sources, where contact with [...]
