IRON AND CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL BY PHYSICAL/CHEMICAL PROCESSES
STRIPPING PROCESS WITH STRUCTURED PACKINGS
Carbon dioxide, iron and manganese salts are unwanted substances in drinking water. Often stripping processes are used to remove those. 2H MASSdek® structured packings offer important advantages for stripping columns compared to random packings.
Why are carbon dioxide, iron and manganese found in water?
Rain and surface water dissolve various minerals and carbonates on its way through the soil before it forms ground water. As a result, the water contains low to high concentrations of iron- and manganese salts and carbon dioxide depending on the soil composition.
Aeration for iron and carbon dioxide removal
Structured packings for a higher service lifetime
By aeration a large amount of oxygen is solved in the water. This leads to an oxidization of iron- and manganese salts and creates insoluble iron- and manganese hydroxides with a potential risk of clogging effects.
