Industry Applications

Whether the water you're using is an ingredient, a part of the manufacturing process, or utilized for sanitation and cleaning purposes - the water you use impacts the taste, color, odor, and consistency of the quality you provide.

High quality water means better service in industries like Salons, Spas, or even Pet Grooming that's better for your skin and hair – or fur. Raise your marketing value, while lowering materials cost reduction.

Clean water adds marketing value to your development, not to mention higher sanitation and cleanliness. Filtered water will also prolong the life of your piping systems throughout your establishment.

Keep up to EPA standards through filtered water that will help to prevent erosion, sinkhole formation, harm to the ecosystem, and much more.

Prevent unwanted contamination to materials and the environment and implement water conservation/sustainability through clean water usage.

Water filtration leads to consistency in production and cost reduction in water usage (cheaper to heat clean water and equipment will last longer).

Prevent infections (major liability reduction) and create sustainability and consistency of vendor.

Provision of clean water for students, teachers, and children, especially in lab or culinary based settings.

Water filtration through community will meet regulatory requirements for Health and Protection. Particularly, with a focus on removal of heavy metals & unwanted contaminants from wastewater.

Service Flow Rates (GPM)

Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn) are metallic elements present in many types of rock. Most groundwater contains some iron and manganese which naturally leaches from rocks and soils. Excess amounts in drinking water can cause discolored water, bad bitter tastes and rust flakes in the water, as well as rusty-brown stains or black specks on fixtures and laundry. Excess amounts may also affect the taste of beverages and can build up deposits in pipes, heaters or pressure tanks. Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), which causes "rotten egg" odor, can also be released from the soil by the same conditions (low dissolved oxygen and low pH) that cause iron and manganese to dissolve in water. Hydrogen Sulfide is frequently found in water with excessive iron and manganese.

How Our Systems Work

Crystal Quest® Commercial Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide systems contain naturally mined ore of magnesium dioxide, which has been used in water treatment for more than 75 years for iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide reduction. It functions as a catalyst, but itself remains relatively unchanged. It works on a principle whereby the iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide are oxidized and trapped on the media. Simple backwashing cleans the filter. No regeneration is required. Nothing is imparted into the drinking water and it has a high capacity for low contaminant concentrations. It can also be used in conjunction with aeration, chlorination, ozone or other pretreatment methods for difficult applications. Chlorine or other oxidants accelerate the catalytic reaction.
