    15. 15. ECOMIX® is a composition of FIVE materials of different origin and properties Includes two patented adsorption components invented by Ecosoft.
    16. 16. Inert resin removes oxidized iron and ensures even flow distribution in backwash Modified sorbent FerroSorb binds Fe(II), provides formation of firm Fe(III) oxides layer and autocatalytic adsorption of iron and manganese compounds Modified sorbent HumiSorb retains NOM through electrostatic interaction with charged groups and hydrophobic binding with aromatic fragments. Cation exchange resin exchanges Ca and Mg and residuals of Fe (II). Quartz sand support bed patented patented
    17. 17. Ecomix includes a tailor-made iron and manganese sorbent FerroSorb Cross-section of FerroSorb Outer active layer of the FerroSorb allows to efficiently remove IRON and MANGANESE from water
    18. 18. Adsorption-oxidation (AOX) mechanism of Iron sorption by FerroSorb 1а 1б 2 2.1 2.2 Active centers for Mn2+ sorption
    19. 19. FerroSorb in Ecomix works to efficiently remove iron and manganese Common cation exchange resins take iron too, but due to poor regeneration become exhausted very fast
    20. 20. • FerroSorb is regenerated by Surface Scouring Mechanism (SSM) in fluidized bed • Other resins are exhausted irreversibly Well-known oxidation-filtration is not applicable to FerroSorb, because FerroSorb provides totally different mechanism of action: Adsorption → Oxidation → Layer Formation → Multicycle Autocatalytic Sorption
    21. 21. Ecomix includes a tailor-made HumiSorb that reduces level of Tannins and color of water fresh HumiSorb HumiSorb after Tannins adsorption
    22. 22. Electrostatic-hydrophobic mechanism of Tannin adsorption Electrostatic interaction Hydrophobic binding
    23. 23. • HumiSorb is not just an anion exchange resin o Very efficient for aquatic tannins o Regeneration with Cl- • Due to irreversible binding of tannins common anion exchange resins become exhausted very fast
    24. 24. Ecomix production technology is a know-how of Ecosoft: •Provides activation of the surface modifiers in FerriSorb & HumiSorb •Homogenity •Consistent quality and composition •Ecomix production is ISO 9001:2009 certified
    25. 25. ECOMIX® is manufactured in: Ukraine (for ex-USSR countries) Germany (for EU countries and the United States) Supplied in 25 L (0.9 ft3) and 12 L (0.4 ft3) bags

    31. 31. Genuine Ecomix Generic mixture1 Generic mixture 2 Mixtures of ion exchange resins that are sold at several times the price of their ingredients • Visual differences • Generics do not contain FerroSorb and HumiSorb • Not homogeneous → no guaranty for stable product composition • Become exhausted after iron sorption
    32. 32. Caution! Generics are dangerous 1. Lower retention capacity for iron and hardness 2. Adsorption capacity deteriorates after each service cycle, generics do not regenerate completely 3. There is a risk of releasing retained manganese! Generic Ecomix because of Mn!

Consequences and causes of poor regeneration Accumulation and aggregation of trapped fines Excessive volume of media Insufficient or excessive backwash flow rate Too short backwash time Loss of ion exchange capacity Insufficient brine volume and/or concentration Insufficient brine contact time Poor/restricted brine percolation due to buildup of fines or channel forming in the bed
    45. 45. Restoring the media after improper use
    46. 46. Restoring the media after improper use 1. Interval backwashing with 20-30 second periods of rest 2. Air scouring the bed (5-10 minutes) 5 - 10 times 3. Making brine in the filter tank (1,3-1,5 kg of salt per 10 L of the media) 4. Air scouring the bed while resting it in brine (15-20 minutes) 5. Interval backwashing with 20-30 second periods of rest until the brine is completely flushed away 3 - 5 times
