Iron Filter

Company Reference: 

The BAF 565 Series chemical-free filter removes iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide while using up to 50% less water than traditional iron filters. Natural oxidation removes iron without the need for chemicals, air pumps or veturis. The 95 Series also is available for high flow rates for large residential and commercial applications. Both series are available in three models: BAF for neutral or higher pH, BIF for pH of greather than 7, and BIF MN for pH between 6 and 6.9.

Toughing Out Iron

Iron is one of the Earth’s most plentiful resources, making up at least 5% of its crust. In well water, iron is usually found as ferrous iron, which is in a dissolved state, potentially causing water to appear clear when first drawn from the tap.

  • The Clearion 2300 Duplex multiple tank system assures you have soft water 24 hours every day—even during the regeneration process. One tank is always in service while the other tank is either on standby or regenerating. This system is ideal for households with larger families, multiple bathrooms and showers that are used often every day. The Duplex is recommended for where treated water needs to...
  • The body of a water softener is a tank filled with resin beads; these beads are covered with sodium ions. As hard water passes through, the resin beads act like a magnet, attracting the calcium and magnesium ions (hardness) in exchange for the sodium ions. Eventually the resin beads become saturated with mineral ions and have to be “recharged.” This process is called regeneration and is conducted...
  • The 360 Series single-tank aeration filter utilizes the unique piston motion control system found in the 300 Series control valve, which allows the processor to speed up or slow down in forward and reverse, depending on the task needed for the filter process at hand. Using the Advanced Clearion Controls feature of forward and reverse motor capability, the control valve can replenish its oxy...
  • Clearion’s 360 Series control valve is equipped with the advanced TWEDO (twin electronic drive operation) function (patents pending) for advanced multiple-function processes needed for efficient and exceptional filtration without the use of air compressors.
