You can hardly find water which has no problem with one of 5 typical contaminants: Hardness Iron Manganese Natural organic matter (NOM) Smell of ammonia and/or H2S These problems often come together.
1.Iron and manganese removal on catalytic media (Birm, MTM, Greensand,etc). 2.Softening on strong acid cation resins (ammonia removal is also possible). 3.Organics removal by activated carbon. 4.(Potentially) Ammonia removal on zeolite. Traditionally – 4 stages
Problems with traditional technology: detailed water analysis deep knowledge and experience of water experts is quite expensive and imperfect creates headaches and problems during maintenance
Some facts: In 1999 started production of ECOMIX. Since 2001 – in Russia, Belarus Since 2004 – in Germany, Italy, Poland, Scandinavian and Baltic countries In 2007-2010 600 000 liters of media sold Lifetime of the media - 3-10 years (average 5 years) Problems - less than 0,1%
ECOMIX ® is a mixture of ion exchange and adsorption materials of different nature 5 components which are created in our Kiev facility
After 1 st backwash creates a multilayer arrangement that provides a maximum efficiency of purification.
Quartz sand support bed Low-crosslinked cation resin Modified adsorbent for NOM removal Modified adsorbent for Fe and Mn removal Inert material for iron removal and correct flow arrangement during backwash
Two types of the media are available: ECOMIX ® А «4-in-1» - more popular, effective in hardness, iron, manganese and ammonia removal. It removes organic at certain level. ECOMIX ® C «5-in-1» - is recommended when besides 4 main contaminants significant reduction of organic content is necessary.
Concentration limits TYPE A Hardness, ppm CaCO3Fe, ppmMn, ppm COD, ppm KMnO4 NH4 ppmTDS, ppm Raw water < 750< 15< 3< 16<4 < 4000 Filtered water Max 20< 0,2< 0,05< 8<0,5 No changes TYPE C Hardness, ppm CaCO3Fe, ppmMn, ppm COD, ppm KMnO4 NH4 ppmTDS, ppm Raw water < 750< 10< 3< 80<4 < 4000 Filtered water Max 20< 0,2< 0,05< 8<0,5 No changes
Only hardness should be considered for calculations Regeneration: 100 g NaCl/l media CAPACITY AND REGENERATION TYPE A 0,75 eq/l(37,5 gCaCO3/l) TYPE C 0,65 eq/l (32,5 gCaCO3/l)
The most typical applications: Residential water treatment for private houses Commercial treatment for food industry Pretreatment before RO Replacement of standard softening for boilers and steam generators
Main Advantages of the systems with ECOMIX: Universal solution. Five major problems of well water are easily solved by just one filter High efficiency. Filter is more effective than traditional iron removal systems. Fe < 15 ppm and Mn<3 ppm, rejection– up to 99%. Consistent reliability. Efficiency does not depend on pH, organics, chlorine or hydrogen sulfide content. The most reliable technology for iron removal – treats ANY well water.
Main Advantages of the systems with ECOMIX: Proven technology. 15 000 systems operating for 12 years all around Europe. Easy operation. Simple calculation of capacity – just hardness is taken into consideration. Extremely low salt consumption. Compact size – a new concept allows to reduce the overall size of the system substantially so it requires a smaller footprint. Cabinet size unit can serve for the whole house.
1.ECOMIX IS NOT JUST A MIXTURE OF ANION AND CATION RESINS 2.AFTER 12 YEARS OF APPLICATION WE KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT WORKING 3.ECOMIX IS BETTER THEN THE ONLY COMPETING ZEOLITE-BASED PRODUCT
