Our Revolutionary Design Means Efficient Operation

The Iron Curtain from Hanson Soft Water is unlike old fashioned iron filters. Its unique operation reduces costs and maintenance while delivering years of trouble-free service. The Iron Curtain:

  • Requires no chemicals or salt for operation or regeneration
  • Requires no air injectors, venturis or micronizers
  • Removes dissolved and precipated iron in high concentrations
  • Automatically increases pH of acid water on type “A” Systems

Operation is simple. Mineral rich water is forced through an aeration tank which converts dissolved minerals such as iron, manganese and sulfur into physical particles. These tiny mineral particles then circulate in the system for enough time to grow to a size where they are trapped in the filter. This way the highest level of dissolved minerals can be easily removed from your water.

Iron and Odor Systems

Nothing is worse than ruining your clothes in rusty water except maybe taking a shower in water that smells like rotten eggs. The Iron Curtain® eliminates both problems. This system is not a water softener, however. You will still need a quality water softener to have soft, iron and odor free water. The Iron Curtain® does such a nice job of cleaning up the smell, appearance and taste of the water that many people discontinue buying bottled water.

What makes an Iron Curtain iron filter different from other iron filters?

Virtually all iron filtration systems sold as a whole house filter have either carbon or birm sand as the filter media to remove the iron. Carbon filters have a life span of up to 5 years and require frequent chemical or air injection to work properly. Carbon may not always work on all types of iron and is very expensive to replace when it is expelled. Birm sand as well as other types of sand filters require heavy oxidizing agents to be able to remove iron. This process of oxidizing is used to make a large enough particle of iron so that it can be trapped with sand. The problem with this process is that the sand or media is all one size and will start to trap the iron as soon as it gets in the filter. This causes the iron to plug up the top half of the filter and reduces pressure prematurely.

Iron Curtain filters have a unique process involving two tanks. One is an air tank used for oxidizing and the other has layers of special minerals designed to remove smell, color, rust and iron without the use of chemical oxidizers. The removal tank is staged with different sizes of mineral, larger mineral on top and gradually smaller mineral toward the bottom. This allows all of the bed to be used and helps prevent premature fouling. This gradient mineral process was patented more than ten years ago by Hellenbrand Water Conditioners, Inc. and is exclusive to the Iron Curtain product.
