Clack Organic Scavenger Water Filter

Wateq’s Birm filters will reduce dissolved iron and manganese in private water supplies. Birm acts a catalyst for the oxidisation of soluble iron and manganese.

Birm is a non-sacrificial media which requires frequent backwashing to remove contaminants and maintain Birm’s effectiveness. Birm requires minimal maintenance, has a long life expectancy and does not require chemical regeneration.

Requirements for Birm include a minimum pH of 6.8, alkalinity should be greater than two times the combined sulphate and chloride concentration, dissolved oxygen must be equal to or at least 15% of the iron or iron and manganese content.

For assistance in specifying your Birm filter, please get in touch with a member of the Wateq team.
