Filtronics, Inc. Approved By TCEQ For Treatment Technology For Arsenic, Iron And Manganese Removal


Filtronics, Inc. of Anaheim, California is pleased to announce they are one of the first companies to receive approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for their treatment technology for the removal of arsenic, iron and manganese at the filtration rate of 10 gallons per minute per square foot.

This high filtration rate is significant for several reasons. Conventional systems must operate at a much lower rate to achieve comparable results, often 3 to 5 gallons per minute. The benefit is substantial savings in the initial capital investment for smaller, compact equipment and a very small footprint. Significant cost savings are realized by the construction and use of smaller facilities and the increased water production from the high filtration rate with less waste and handling. The smaller filter size also translates into lower wash water requirements and further enhances the backwash-to-filtration ratio for a more efficient system.

The leading environmental agency for the state of Texas issued their approval early last year. Filtronics has two filtration systems operating very successfully, continually exceeding the effluent requirements imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the TCEQ.
