The US Water Matrixx pH Balancing Backwashing Calcite Neutralizer System designed to raise the pH of the water supply
The Matrixx automatic backwashing carbon filter system is specifically designed for applications to remove chlorine, chemicals and pesticides, or for de-chlorination of water supplies, such as for food service, RO pre-treatment, and whole-house filtration.
The Matrixx Catalytic Carbon Filter is designed to remove hydrogen sulfide (with the use of H2O2), chlorine, chemicals, pesticides and CHLORAMINES, utilizing Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon
Designed to reduce or remove turbidity, silt, sand and sediment to below 5 microns for commercial, industrial and municipal applications. Takes the place of traditional sand or multi-media filters to deliver up to three (3) times longer runs between regenerations with much finer filtration and lower pressure drop.
Designed to reduce or remove chlorine, chemicals, tastes, odors and dissolved organic matter from municipal and industrial water supplies with prolonged contact coconut shell granular activated carbon filtration.
Designed to reduce or remove iron, manganese and/or low-levels of sulfur for commercial, industrial and municipal applications.
A backwashing water filter may look like a water softener but it is entirely different. Softeners work on the principle of ion exchange and backwashing filters rely greatly upon simple mechanical filtration.
A backwashing filter is a simple device that consists of a large tank called a media tank that is filled with a filtering medium such as the following:
Water enters the top of the tank through a control valve and passes downward through the media, which removes impurities and holds them. Some media, such as Greensand Plus and Catalytic Carbon simply facilitate oxidation, while filtering precipitate in the process. Calcite, dissolves and in the process increases the pH of acidic water. The treated water then enters a distributor at the bottom of the media tank, passes upward through the tube and exits the filter through the control valve.
When the filter media is saturated with contaminants, the control valve initiates a backwash. The backwash is an operation in which water passes backward through the filter at a rapid rate. It enters the tank at the bottom distributor assembly, then passes upward through the filter media to the drain - all of this operation is controlled by the control valve. The rapid backwash in an upward flow, washes away impurities, fluffs, re-classifies and resettles the media bed, preparing it for another filtering cycle.
