Iron & Sulfur Removal
Eliminate rust staining, as well as sulphur “rotten egg” odors with the Nelsen AIOTM Air Injection Oxidizing System.
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 frustration. Iron staining is a common problem in homes today. It causes orange staining on fixtures, as well as dingy clothes and sometimes can have negative effects on both hair and skin. Sulfur is easily detected by the presence of a “rotten egg” odor, and is sometimes associated with yellow staining. All of these problems can be eliminated with the Nelsen AIOTM Air Injection Oxidizing Filtration System.
Protect your Appliances. By reducing the iron and sulphur buildup in your water your appliances will last longer. Rust and slime buildup make your appliances work harder and less efficiently, requiring more maintenance or replacement.
Using Nature’s Own Process. These naturally occurring elements can be removed using nature’s own process of oxidation. The Nelsen AIOTM maintains an “air pocket” in the top of the tank while the system is in service. As water passes thru the air pocket, iron and sulphur are oxidized. The Nelsen AIOTM filter media bed then removes the oxidized iron and sulphur from the water. Additionally, dissolved oxygen is added to the water.
Efficient and Chemical Free. The Nelsen AIOTM Air Injection Filter System, as a single tank system, is an efficient and cost effective system. The need for additional equipment...air tanks, feed pumps, or harsh chemicals (like those used in Manganese Greensand Systems) is virtually eliminated!
