Having used Quantum Filtration Medium DMI 65 in our two iron and manganese removal plants on the South West Health Campus site for the past year it is without difficulty that I am able to recommend the product. The plant for 4 years had operated unsuccessfully with potassium permanganate, and we had reached total frustration in trying to find a system to satisfactorily remove our high levels of both iron and manganese in a cost-effective manner. With the use of the Quantum product the bore water used for reticulation has been of a consistently clean quality, and our operating costs have been reduced.
The Arsenic Filtration Plant, designed and constructed by Amiad utilizing DMI65 Media, was commissioned in March, 2015, and has been successfully reducing the Arsenic to 0.001 mg/L, making it suitable for consumption by the community of Chillagoe, Queensland.
We have successfully evaluated and proven the effectiveness of DMI-65 water filtration media in reducing manganese and iron levels in water.
The Water Services department at our Cloudbreak Mine site purchased 2 metric ton of DMI-65 iron and manganese filter media in late 2008. The treatment plant was commissioned in September 2009. Ground water with low TDS values but elevated levels of Iron and Manganese could be treated other than RO processes to meet drinking water standards. The DMI-65 media used in this treatment plant consistently reduces iron and manganese to ultra low levels. After filtration through the mentioned media Manganese levels went from 0.939 mg/L to 0.02mg/L when mixed with our other potable water supply. This product has consistently proved to be effective and efficient and can recommend DMI-65 for the purpose of removing manganese / iron from a contaminated water source.
The flow rate through the filter has increased dramatically and the very discoloured and silty river water is coming out of the filter with a turbidity well below 1 NTU – which is very impressive. The clients are very happy!
Osmoflo have commissioned a DMI-65 filter upstream of the RO system. Fine polishing of Mn and Fe are through DMI-65 filters.
