WECO Backwashing Filter with KDF-55 for Chlorine Removal
The WECO Backwashing filter with KDF®-55 is a Point-Of-Entry (POE) chlorine removal system for municipal water supplies. KDF®-55 consists of high purity copper-zinc granules that use redox (the exchange of electrons) reduce/remove chlorine and control microorganisms in potable water without the use of chemicals. Chlorine causes taste and odor problems in drinking water and showers. Chlorine is a powerful oxidizing irritant. It makes hair feel gummy when wet and straw-like when dry. Chlorine gas, evaporating from the shower water, irritates the eyes, nose and throat in adults, children and pets. Chlorine can ruin flavors in drinks like coffee, iced tea, health drinks and in prepared foods. WECO backwashing filters are available in a variety of sizes. Please consult with WECO Technical Support for assistance in selecting the proper size filter to meet your water purification requirements.
The WECO backwashing filter consists of a Structural Poly Glass™ Pressure tank and a Fleck 5810 XTR2 touch screen controller. Structural Poly Glass™ is the ideal filter media tank for residential and industrial water filtration and conditioning duty. The pressure tank has an attractive stainless-steel outer jacket for good looks, and durability. This combination provides unmatched strength and chemical resistance for years of trouble-free service. The slim diameter makes installation easy in tight locations and does not take up a lot of floor space. The Fleck XTR2 controller is constructed of a fiber-reinforced polymer valve body for superior strength and durability. It is non-corrosive and UV-resistant. The controller uses an optical sensor for precision cycle positioning. The controller is easily programmed and user-friendly due to detailed screen descriptions, color LCD display, and familiar icons. The intuitive navigation is easy with a large LCD screen. The controller has an internal memory that remembers your settings during a power failure. It has a convenient Vacation Mode to save water when not in use. The password lock-out prevents unauthorized users from changing the settings. An audible alarm sounds if there is a controller error. Diagnostics can be downloaded via USB should the need arise. The Fleck XTR2 controller has feature rich diagnostics including:
- Current Flow Rate
- Peak Flow Rate (can be reset)
- Totalizer (can be reset)
- Last Regeneration
- Daily usage for last four weeks
- Software Version
- Number of Regenerations
- Regeneration Interval
- Usage since last regeneration
- Last program change
Water enters the top of the tank through the Fleck control valve and passes downward through the KDF-55 filter media, which removes impurities. The WECO backwashing filter will clean itself periodically by rinsing away impurities it has filtered from water. When the KDF-55 filter medium is saturated with contaminants, the control valve automatically starts the backwash process. The backwash procedure is an operation where water passes backward through the filter media at a fast flow rate. It enters the tank at the bottom through the riser tube, then flows upward through the filter medium, exiting at the control valve and sent to waste. The rapid, turbulent upward waterflow, in addition to flushing away particulate matter, loosens and resettles the media bed, preparing it for another filtration cycle. The treated and conditioned water enters the riser tube at the bottom of the mineral tank, passing upward and exiting the filter through the control valve.
