Iron and manganese removal with ozone in drinking water production systems

Iron and manganese removal using ozone is among the most ecological ways in drinking water production systems. Iron and manganese is easily oxidized with ozone. Ozono centras UAB applies in practice oxidation and removal of iron and manganese from drinking water by using ozone. Iron and manganese, present in drinking water, do not pose any health issues, the purpose of removal is aesthetics and maintenance of pipelines and plumbing equipment. Comparing oxidation with oxygen or ozone, the ozone system is more efficient due to faster oxidation reaction and complete iron oxidation. Ozone oxidises iron and manganese by forming insoluble particles, which are removed by means of filters.
