Fleck 5600 Birm Filter for Iron & Manganese

The Iron Filter Fleck 5600 Birm Filter removes iron and manganese.

Up to 5 PPM of iron.

(This filter does not remove sulfur nor manganese.) 

Birm is a great filter medium used to reduce iron content. It oxidizes and eliminates iron without pre-treatment.

  • No chemicals to buy for upkeep (under correct circumstances) and no regeneration needed.
  • Very high iron removal efficiency.
  • Occasional backwashing needed.
  • Tough material for a long life and wide temperature variety.

  • Fleck 5600 Filter Valve - Standard timer backwashing filter valve.
  • Simple mechanical style is easy to use
  • Controls are user-friendly and effortlessly programmable
  • Non-corrosive, UV-resistant Noryl valve body

How it Functions

As water flows through the filter tank containing Birm media, with enough oxygen within the water, the media causes the iron to form rust or strong iron particles.

After these rust particles get trapped within the filter media, once or twice per week they're automatically back washed out to drain, and also the filter media is prepared to filter once more.

CONDITIONS TO OPERATE 

Check To Insure Proper Function

A simple water test of your raw well water is highly suggested prior to buying filter systems. 

Water Conditions Required:

  • Water must have a pH of 7.0 to 9.0. for birm to function correctly.
  • The dissolved oxygen content should be a minimum of 15% from the iron or manganese content.
  • Water must include no tannins, chlorine, oil, or hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor).
    If any of these items are present, we suggest the Greensand filter system.
  • Aeration is recommended for optimal performance.

For Wells 50 Feet or Deeper:

An air injector must be used to add oxygen to deep well water prior to feeding a Birm filter.

If water is fed from an open storage tank or spring, then additional air injection is typically not required.
