‘ANA’ Commercial and Industrial Neutralization Water Filters

ANA-Commercial-Water-Filter‘ANA’ Commercial and Industrial Neutralization Water Filters – Calcite is a crushed and screened calcium carbonate media used to neutralize acidic or low pH water supplies to a neutral, less corrosive effluent. Acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate on contact to raise the pH which reduces the potential leaching of copper and other metals found in piping systems. Media will need to be added periodically as it depletes in the filter vessel. Since the effluent water will increase in calcium level, a water softener may be required after the neutralizing filter.

How To Size Industrial Water Purification Filters

In addition to service flow, the selection of a filter system for industrial water purification must take into account the available backwash flow rate. This is the most important function in the proper operation of a filter. Periodically, the accumulated impurities (iron, sediment, etc.) must be removed (backwashed) from the filter. Backwash flow rates are always much higher than service flow rates and therefore limit the size of filter that can be installed. As a general rule in sizing filters, select the largest filter that can be backwashed with the flow rate available at the point of filter installation, then note the service flow rate for the filter selected. If it is not adequate for the flow to be treated, a twin or triple filter installed in parallel is required. A parallel installation will increase the service flow while permitting each filter to be backwashed separately with the existing water supply.
