Big Blue Iron/Manganese Water Filter Cartridge - size 20-inch x 4.5-inch

The Iron Manganese media serves as a robust solution for eliminating soluble iron (Fe), manganese (Mg), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from well water supplies. This purple-black filter media is crafted from processed ceramic zeolite granules. It is versatile, fitting into both closed pressure systems without aeration or re-pumping, as well as open gravity filter systems.

The recommended operational methods include continuous regeneration, particularly effective for predominantly iron-laden water.

For optimal performance and longevity, customers are advised to employ a sediment filter as a pre-filter and a CTO filter as a post-filter. This precautionary measure protects the Iron Manganese replacement cartridge from rapid clogging, a common issue without proper filtration. While users may experience a slight pressure drop in water output (minimum inlet pressure for the iron-manganese system is 60 psi), rest assured that this is a normal part of the media cartridge's functioning.

It's important to note that the Iron Manganese filter can be refilled with the appropriate filter media. If needed, we offer Iron/Manganese Water Filter Media (104122) for purchase.

Physical Attributes

  • Apparent Density: 1.0 g/ml
  • Shipping Weight: 6.5 Lbs
  • Specific Gravity: 2.5~2.6
  • Screen Grading (dry): 16~30 mesh
  • Effective Size: 0.65 ± 0.05mm
  • Uniformity Coefficient: Less than 1.5
  • pH Range: 6.2 ~ 8.5
  • 60 PSI To avoid a drop in water pressure at home, it's important to maintain a minimum operating pressure of 60 PSI
  • Maximum Pressure Drop: 0.85 kg/cm2

Important: Flush the system after changing the Iron/Manganese filter to remove the Iron Fines.

Please follow these steps to prevent clogging and potential damage to the filter.

  1. After installing filters in the filter housings, ensure that the outflow valve on the system is CLOSED.
  2. Open the main inflowing valve HALFWAY to limit incoming water while holding down one of the pressure-release valves on the system to purge any air.
  3. OPEN the outflowing valve and the faucet nearest the system for 5-10 minutes, or until the water runs clear, to flush any fines from the filters.
  4. You're done! Turn off the faucet, open the main inflowing valve all the way, and your system is ready to go.

Caution: To prevent rapid buildups in the pre-woven filter and ensure the Iron filter has a longer lifespan, always install this filter after the sediment filter. It is also recommended to follow this filter with a CTO carbon filter to effectively combat any unpleasant odors that may arise once it starts collecting iron or hydrogen sulfide. Without a carbon filter after the iron filter, there is no effective way to address the issue of foul odors.

Methods of Operation

For wells primarily focused on iron removal, especially with or without the presence of manganese, the recommended mode of operation is continuous regeneration. In this process, a predetermined quantity of potassium permanganate (KMnO4), often combined with chlorine (Cl2), is introduced directly into the untreated water prior to the unit containing Iron manganese for continuous regeneration. It is advisable to feed chlorine upstream of KMnO4, allowing for a contact time of 10 to 20 seconds if possible. Sufficient chlorine should be administered to achieve the desired residual in the filter effluent. The introduction of KMnO4 should be ample to produce a "just pink" color in the filter inlet, ensuring the continuous regeneration of the Iron manganese media.

The quantity of Cl2 and KMnO4 required can be estimated as follows:
mg/L KMnO4 = (0.2 x mg/L Fe)(2 x mg/L Mn)
Without Cl2 the KMnO4 demand can be estimated as follows:

Suggested Operating Conditions

  • Backwash: Employ a sufficient rate using treated water to achieve an approximate 30% expansion of the bed.
  • Rinse: Conduct a rinse at the normal service flow rate for a duration of 5 minutes or until the effluent meets acceptable standards.
  • Capacity: The capacity ranges from 350 to 500 g/m2 of bed area, based on the demand for potassium permanganate. For continuous regeneration of iron/manganese, a minimum bed height of 70cm composed of specially sized iron/manganese media is essential. The pressure drop should not surpass 0.70 to 0.85 kg/cm2.
  • Flow rate: In continuous regeneration operation, maintain normal flow rates within the range of approximately 5 to 12 m/hr. Higher concentrations of iron and manganese typically necessitate lower flow rates for equivalent run lengths. While rates exceeding 12 m/hr can generally be tolerated, it is recommended to operate a pilot unit to assess effluent quality and run length.

The run length between backwashes can be estimated as follows:

Example:What is run length on a water containing 1.7 mg/L iron and 0.3 mg/L manganese at 10m/hr operating rate?
=(1 x 1.7) + (2 x 0.3)
= 2.3 mg/L
At 500 g/m2 loading ÷ 2.3 mg/L = 217 m
At 10 m/hr service rate, 217/10 = 21.7 hr
Therefore the backwash frequency is approximately every 20 ~ 24 hours of operation.

General Notes

pH Considerations:Raw water with a pH of 6.2 or higher can traverse through iron/manganese media without necessitating pH correction. However, water with a pH lower than 6.2 should undergo pH adjustment to fall within the range of 6.2 to 6.5 before passing through the iron/manganese media. If a pH exceeding 6.5 is desired in the water system, any additional alkali should be introduced after the filters. This precaution is taken due to the potential adverse reactions involving a colloid that may occur with both iron and alkali when the pH surpasses 6.5.

KMnO4 Solution Strength:In continuous regeneration operation, the concentration of KMnO4 can be as high as 30 g/L.

  • Explosion: Not identified as an explosion hazard.
  • Fire Extinguishing Media: Utilize any appropriate method to extinguish the adjacent fire.
  • Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear complete protective clothing and use a NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece, operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

Accidental Release Measure

  • Ventilate the area affected by the leak or spill. Use the suitable personal protective equipment outlined in Section 8. For spills, gather the material by sweeping and place it in a container for reclamation or proper disposal. Consider using vacuuming or wet sweeping methods to prevent the dispersal of dust.

Handling and Storage

  • Store in a tightly sealed container, in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space, and safeguard against physical harm. Empty containers may pose hazards due to retained product residues (such as dust or solids), so adhere to all warnings and precautions outlined for the product.
  • Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

    • Personal Respirators(NIOSH Approved): For instances where the exposure limit is surpassed, and engineering controls are impractical, individuals can use a half-facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or superior filters) for a duration of up to ten times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the relevant regulatory agency or respirator supplier, choosing the lower value. Alternatively, a full-facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, again opting for the lower value. If there are oil particles present (such as lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.), it is advisable to use a NIOSH type R or P filter. In situations of emergencies or when exposure levels are unknown, opt for a full-facepiece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
    • WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.

    • Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
    • Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.

    There are two primary types of iron found in water:

    • Ferric Iron: Insoluble and visible to the naked eye, also known as "Red Water Iron."
    • Ferrous / Soluble Iron: Dissolves in water and is invisible, also known as "Clear Water Iron."

    If you are dealing with both Ferric and Ferrous Iron, it is highly recommended to use an Iron Manganese Filter/System. This system will oxidize dissolved iron into particulate form, making it ready for removal from your water.

    Be aware that Organic Material, Trapped Air, Upstream Pollution, or a new water source can also discolor your water. In the event that an Iron Filter does not immediately resolve your water issues, please address these potential sources as well.

    PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY ON HOW TO SET UP YOUR IRON MANGANESE CTO / GAC CARBON FILTER / SYSTEM WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE TO OTHER FILTERS. Installing the system immediately with all three filters loaded may cause the 3rd Stage filter to be covered with iron powder, also known as "red water iron." Therefore, when handling Iron Manganese systems, proper pre-preparation for the system is crucial.

    First-Time Installation for Iron Manganese Systems

    For the initial use of the filter, follow these steps:

    • Load the sediment filter into the 1st stage housing (right).
    • Load the iron-manganese filter into the 2nd stage housing (middle).
    • Leave the CTO Filter out, and keep the 3rd stage housing (left) empty.

    Connect the system to your house and open the mainline for 10 MINUTES, simultaneously opening the nearest faucet to flush out the residue of red finery/powder.

    Once the water coming out of the faucet is clear without a reddish color, your system is ready for the CTO Filter installation into the 3rd Stage Filter Housing. Stop the mainline, install the CTO Filter, and open the mainline again for 5 MINUTES, while also opening the nearest faucet to flush out the residue of carbon block remaining powder.

    Important: Flush the system after changing Iron/Manganese/GAC Filters to remove Fines/Powder.

    • After installing the filters in the filter housings, ensure that the outflow valve on the system is CLOSED.
    • Open the main in-flowing valve HALFWAY to limit incoming water while holding down one of the pressure-release valves on the system to purge any air.
    • OPEN the out-flowing valve and the faucet nearest to the system for 5-10 MINUTES, or until the water clears up completely, to flush any fines/powder from the filters. Follow the steps outlined in (First-Time Installation for Iron Manganese Systems) above.
    • Turn off the faucet, open the main in-flowing valve all the way, and your system is good to go.

  • pH Range: 6.2 ~ 8.5
  • 60 PSI To avoid a drop in water pressure at home, it's important to maintain a minimum operating pressure of 60 PSI
  • Maximum Pressure Drop: 0.85 kg/cm2

Important: Flush the system after changing the Iron/Manganese filter to remove the Iron Fines.

Please follow these steps to prevent clogging and potential damage to the filter.

  1. After installing filters in the filter housings, ensure that the outflow valve on the system is CLOSED.
  2. Open the main inflowing valve HALFWAY to limit incoming water while holding down one of the pressure-release valves on the system to purge any air.
  3. OPEN the outflowing valve and the faucet nearest the system for 5-10 minutes, or until the water runs clear, to flush any fines from the filters.
  4. You're done! Turn off the faucet, open the main inflowing valve all the way, and your system is ready to go.

Caution: To prevent rapid buildups in the pre-woven filter and ensure the Iron filter has a longer lifespan, always install this filter after the sediment filter. It is also recommended to follow this filter with a CTO carbon filter to effectively combat any unpleasant odors that may arise once it starts collecting iron or hydrogen sulfide. Without a carbon filter after the iron filter, there is no effective way to address the issue of foul odors.

Methods of Operation

For wells primarily focused on iron removal, especially with or without the presence of manganese, the recommended mode of operation is continuous regeneration. In this process, a predetermined quantity of potassium permanganate (KMnO4), often combined with chlorine (Cl2), is introduced directly into the untreated water prior to the unit containing Iron manganese for continuous regeneration. It is advisable to feed chlorine upstream of KMnO4, allowing for a contact time of 10 to 20 seconds if possible. Sufficient chlorine should be administered to achieve the desired residual in the filter effluent. The introduction of KMnO4 should be ample to produce a "just pink" color in the filter inlet, ensuring the continuous regeneration of the Iron manganese media.

The quantity of Cl2 and KMnO4 required can be estimated as follows:
mg/L KMnO4 = (0.2 x mg/L Fe)(2 x mg/L Mn)
Without Cl2 the KMnO4 demand can be estimated as follows:

Suggested Operating Conditions

  • Backwash: Employ a sufficient rate using treated water to achieve an approximate 30% expansion of the bed.
  • Rinse: Conduct a rinse at the normal service flow rate for a duration of 5 minutes or until the effluent meets acceptable standards.
  • Capacity: The capacity ranges from 350 to 500 g/m2 of bed area, based on the demand for potassium permanganate. For continuous regeneration of iron/manganese, a minimum bed height of 70cm composed of specially sized iron/manganese media is essential. The pressure drop should not surpass 0.70 to 0.85 kg/cm2.
  • Flow rate: In continuous regeneration operation, maintain normal flow rates within the range of approximately 5 to 12 m/hr. Higher concentrations of iron and manganese typically necessitate lower flow rates for equivalent run lengths. While rates exceeding 12 m/hr can generally be tolerated, it is recommended to operate a pilot unit to assess effluent quality and run length.

The run length between backwashes can be estimated as follows:

Example:What is run length on a water containing 1.7 mg/L iron and 0.3 mg/L manganese at 10m/hr operating rate?
=(1 x 1.7) + (2 x 0.3)
= 2.3 mg/L
At 500 g/m2 loading ÷ 2.3 mg/L = 217 m
At 10 m/hr service rate, 217/10 = 21.7 hr
Therefore the backwash frequency is approximately every 20 ~ 24 hours of operation.

General Notes

pH Considerations:Raw water with a pH of 6.2 or higher can traverse through iron/manganese media without necessitating pH correction. However, water with a pH lower than 6.2 should undergo pH adjustment to fall within the range of 6.2 to 6.5 before passing through the iron/manganese media. If a pH exceeding 6.5 is desired in the water system, any additional alkali should be introduced after the filters. This precaution is taken due to the potential adverse reactions involving a colloid that may occur with both iron and alkali when the pH surpasses 6.5.

KMnO4 Solution Strength:In continuous regeneration operation, the concentration of KMnO4 can be as high as 30 g/L.

Material Safety Data Sheet

Hazards Identification

  • Inhalation: Elevated concentrations of a nuisance dust can lead to conditions such as coughing, sneezing, and nasal irritation.
  • Ingestion: Considered non-toxic; however, significant oral doses may result in irritation to the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Skin Contact: Unlikely to pose a health hazard through skin exposure, though it may cause mild irritation and redness.
  • Eye Contact: Although specific information is not available, it is presumed to cause mechanical irritation.
  • Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: No relevant information is available.

First Aid Measures

  • Inhalation: Move to an area with fresh air. Seek medical attention if experiencing difficulty breathing.
  • Ingestion: First aid measures are not typically necessary. In the case of significant ingestion, provide water to drink and consult with medical professionals.
  • Skin Contact: Promptly rinse the affected skin with abundant water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and footwear. Launder clothing before reuse and thoroughly clean footwear before wearing again. Seek medical attention if irritation develops.
  • Eye Contact: Immediately flush the eyes with ample water for at least 15 minutes, intermittently lifting upper and lower eyelids. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Fire Fighting Measure

  • Fire: Deemed not to pose a fire hazard.
  • Explosion: Not identified as an explosion hazard.
  • Fire Extinguishing Media: Utilize any appropriate method to extinguish the adjacent fire.
  • Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear complete protective clothing and use a NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece, operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

Accidental Release Measure

  • Ventilate the area affected by the leak or spill. Use the suitable personal protective equipment outlined in Section 8. For spills, gather the material by sweeping and place it in a container for reclamation or proper disposal. Consider using vacuuming or wet sweeping methods to prevent the dispersal of dust.

Handling and Storage

  • Store in a tightly sealed container, in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space, and safeguard against physical harm. Empty containers may pose hazards due to retained product residues (such as dust or solids), so adhere to all warnings and precautions outlined for the product.
  • Exposure Controls and Personal Protection

    • Personal Respirators(NIOSH Approved): For instances where the exposure limit is surpassed, and engineering controls are impractical, individuals can use a half-facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or superior filters) for a duration of up to ten times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the relevant regulatory agency or respirator supplier, choosing the lower value. Alternatively, a full-facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, again opting for the lower value. If there are oil particles present (such as lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.), it is advisable to use a NIOSH type R or P filter. In situations of emergencies or when exposure levels are unknown, opt for a full-facepiece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
    • WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.

    • Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
    • Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.

    There are two primary types of iron found in water:

    • Ferric Iron: Insoluble and visible to the naked eye, also known as "Red Water Iron."
    • Ferrous / Soluble Iron: Dissolves in water and is invisible, also known as "Clear Water Iron."

    If you are dealing with both Ferric and Ferrous Iron, it is highly recommended to use an Iron Manganese Filter/System. This system will oxidize dissolved iron into particulate form, making it ready for removal from your water.

    Be aware that Organic Material, Trapped Air, Upstream Pollution, or a new water source can also discolor your water. In the event that an Iron Filter does not immediately resolve your water issues, please address these potential sources as well.

    PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY ON HOW TO SET UP YOUR IRON MANGANESE CTO / GAC CARBON FILTER / SYSTEM WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE TO OTHER FILTERS. Installing the system immediately with all three filters loaded may cause the 3rd Stage filter to be covered with iron powder, also known as "red water iron." Therefore, when handling Iron Manganese systems, proper pre-preparation for the system is crucial.

    First-Time Installation for Iron Manganese Systems

    For the initial use of the filter, follow these steps:

    • Load the sediment filter into the 1st stage housing (right).
    • Load the iron-manganese filter into the 2nd stage housing (middle).
    • Leave the CTO Filter out, and keep the 3rd stage housing (left) empty.

    Connect the system to your house and open the mainline for 10 MINUTES, simultaneously opening the nearest faucet to flush out the residue of red finery/powder.

    Once the water coming out of the faucet is clear without a reddish color, your system is ready for the CTO Filter installation into the 3rd Stage Filter Housing. Stop the mainline, install the CTO Filter, and open the mainline again for 5 MINUTES, while also opening the nearest faucet to flush out the residue of carbon block remaining powder.

    Important: Flush the system after changing Iron/Manganese/GAC Filters to remove Fines/Powder.

    • After installing the filters in the filter housings, ensure that the outflow valve on the system is CLOSED.
    • Open the main in-flowing valve HALFWAY to limit incoming water while holding down one of the pressure-release valves on the system to purge any air.
    • OPEN the out-flowing valve and the faucet nearest to the system for 5-10 MINUTES, or until the water clears up completely, to flush any fines/powder from the filters. Follow the steps outlined in (First-Time Installation for Iron Manganese Systems) above.
    • Turn off the faucet, open the main in-flowing valve all the way, and your system is good to go.

    NOTE: Max Water is not responsible for any system/filter damages incurred by not following the above guidelines.

Iron/Manganese Filter Media - 5 LBS: You need 6 LBS media to fill this cartridge

Iron manganese media serves as an effective solution for eliminating soluble iron (Fe), manganese (Mg), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from well-water sources. This purple-black filter media is derived from processed ceramic zeolite granules. Its application can be in a fully enclosed pressure system without the need for aeration or re-pumping, or alternatively, in an open gravity filter system.

Various operational methods exist, with continuous regeneration being the recommended approach for water primarily contaminated with iron.

Important Considerations: It is advisable for customers to incorporate a "sediment filter" as a pre-filter and a "CTO filter" as a post-filter. This precautionary measure enhances the longevity of the "Iron Manganese" replacement cartridge, as the Iron-Manganese filter weave can become quickly obstructed without the protection of a sediment filter. Additionally, users may observe a minor decrease in water output pressure (the iron-manganese system requires a minimum inlet pressure of 60 psi). This is a normal aspect of the media cartridge's functioning.

= 2.3 mg/L
At 500 g/m2 loading ÷ 2.3 mg/L = 217 m
At 10 m/hr service rate, 217/10 = 21.7 hr
Therefore the backwash frequency is approximately every 20 ~ 24 hours of operation.
