Arsenic Filtration + Iron/Manganese/Hydrogen Sulfide
AF Series – Arsenic Filtration Design
AF Series systems feature a proprietary, catalytic filtration media capable of removing high levels of both arsenic III (arsenite) and arsenic V (arsenate), in addition to low levels of dissolved iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide (sulfur/rotten egg odor). The media is long lasting (typically 7 years) and requires no chemicals for regeneration, instead relying solely on a nightly backwash cycle. The oxygen dissolved in the backwash water effectively oxidizes and cleans the media bed.
NOTE: ARSENIC IS A KNOWN CARCINOGEN. IT IS CRITICAL THAT USERS TEST THEIR WATER NO LESS THAN 4X PER YEAR TO ENSURE PROPER SYSTEM OPERATION. WCC CAN PROVIDE NON-CERTIFIED ARSENIC TESTING SERVICES AND CAN HELP IN LOCATING CERTIFIED LABORATORIES FOR OFFICIAL TESTING. ALWAYS FOLLOW FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL GUIDELINES FOR COMMUNITY WATER SYSTEMS (WHERE APPLICABLE).
