No chemicals, no salt….just ordinary air and an innovative design that effectively removes low levels of iron and sulfur odors.
This “smart” system continually monitors water usage and adjusts to your household consumption ensuring a continuous supply of iron and odor-free water.
Like its big brother, the Hellenbrand Iron Curtain Junior uses Natural Oxygen to remove iron “rust” and other nuisance minerals without chemicals. This treatment system also removes Hydrogen Sulfide, eliminating nuisance rotten egg odors.
The Iron Curtain Junior is an effective, yet economical, space-saving system to treat your well water problems!
Iron Curtain Junior Benefits
- Removes up to 3ppm of Iron
- Environmentally friendly – no chemicals or salt needed
- Space saving design – less space than 2-stage systems
Dual Function System Controller
The Iron Curtain Junior uses a digital controller that can be adjusted with additional rinse cycles based on your well water quality. Unlike other filters, the IC Junior draws air into the tank during the last cycle of regeneration to maintain a fresh pocket of air that is used to oxidize iron and hydrogen sulfide.
Iron Curtain Filter Technology
Standard Iron Filters use a small 3/4″ tube to distribute water through a single filter media like Birm or Greensand.
Water ends of flowing in the path of least resistance which results in uneven Iron buildup that is much harder to clean out during regeneration.
The Iron Curtain Junior design uses a 3-layer filter bed with a specialty media that works in conjuction with the “air pocket” to continue oxidizing and trapping contaminants as they travel through the system.
The media blend is combined with a full width distributor plate to help direct water flow evenly through the tank for balanced loading, and improved filtration.
Vortech Backwash Technology
Iron Filters need a strong “backwash” to scrub themselves clean of Iron and Manganese.
Standard Iron Filters have a weaker backwash technology. Water simply rises up through the filter bed – like blowing bubbles with a straw!
The Vortech Plate creates a powerful circular flow through the Iron Filter media. This aggressively flushes and knocks out debris for superior cleaning.
