Industrial Birm Media Filter for Iron Reduction 2 x 196 GPM - Lebanon

Product Description

The feed water is coming from a deep brackish well and the capacity of this system is 2 x 196 GPM . This system is for iron reduction for RO pretreatment.

Industrial birm media filter systems for iron reduction is a great asset to save water and protect the reverse osmosis membranes. The system included advanced PLC control panel and all automatic valves.

  • NSF Epoxy Coated Interior Steel Tanks
  • ASME Tanks
  • Manway Top Loading Port
  • Schedule 80 PVC Face Piping
  • Electrically Actuated Butterfly Valves
  • PLC Controller with NEMA 4X Enclosure
  • Flanged Piping Connection
  • High Grade NSF Birm Media
  • Backwash rate: 10
Project Summary:
  • Destination Country: Lebanon
  • Application: RO Pretreatment
  • Feed water: Brackish from well
  • Type of system: Iron reduction for RO pre treatment
  • Capacity: 2 x 196 GPM


In this particular project, the feed water had a high content of iron which is higher than the reverse osmosis feed limitation. Reverse osmosis membranes are very sensitive to iron, manganese and any heavy metals.



Birm is an efficient and economical media for the reduction of dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. It may be used in either gravity fed or pressurized water treatment systems. The birm works very effective when the feed water is aerated. When using Birm for iron removal, it is necessary that the water contains no oil or hydrogen sulfide. Organic matter should not exceed 4-5 ppm, and the D.O. content should be equal to at least 15% of the iron content with a pH of 6.8 or more. 



This iron reduction filter includes feed and backwash pumps, birm media filters. The feed water is coming from a brackish well and the capacity of this system is 2 x 196 GPM.
