Yasric Acid Neutralizing Filter

Yasric-ANF allows water to pas through special media bed of calcite and/or corosex (used for low pH water). As the low pH water passes through the bed, the mineral dissolves into the water and raises its pH to a suitable safe level. Acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium and magnesium media on contact as the water flows through the filter, raising the pH of the water and increasing the alkalinity. This eliminates the effects of corrosive water chemistries and can help to prevent corrosion of piping and fixtures.

Corosex, being a highly reactive magnesium oxide, is also used most effectively where required pH correction is substantial or high flow conditions are in use.

pH is an indicator of the acidic or alkaline condition of water. Water with a pH value less than 7 is acidic and tends to be corrosive. Acidic water (low pH) can leach copper, iron, lead, and other minerals out of the metal pipes and plumbing fixtures of your home, which can cause pipes to leak. Metals that leach from the pipes (lead from lead pipes or copper from copper pipes) may also cause health problems. Acidic water with pH values in the range of 6 to 7 is more corrosive to the metals used in plumbing systems than normal water.

Common causes for acidic water are acid rainfall due to atmospheric carbon dioxide and other airborne pollutants, runoff from mining soils, and decomposition of plant materials. Both ground waters (wells) and surface waters (such as spring water or creeks) can be acidic (mainly due to the dissolved CO2 coming in water). Commonly, the low pH of the ground water is mostly a result of natural geological conditions at the site and the type of minerals found in the local rock.

Acidic water can be corrected by several water treatment strategies comprises of both chemical and non-chemical base neutralization systems.

Yasric-ANF must be backwashed periodically to keep the bed clean since they serve as mechanical filters to remove solid particles from the water. Downflow ANF using a periodic automatic backwash is much easier to maintain and tend to work better for residential well water systems. A once per year addition of the calcite is all that is typically required.

The size of the system is directly proportional to the flow rate of the water, in gallons per minute. The higher the flow rate, the larger the system required. The useful service life of ANF filter depends upon the imposed load.

 

  • Uses naturally occurring neutralizing media increases alkalinity and raises low pH in the water to correct for acidic conditions
