- Adjusts pH levels and reduces elevated iron and hydrogen sulfide gas
- Chemical-free process to reduce precipitated (ferric), ferrous (dissolved) or bacterial iron by air induction
- State-of-the-art control valve is extremely easy-to-use, fully automatic and water-efficient
- Media blend increases pH levels to enhance iron reduction
- Unique bypass valve has state-of-the-art design features
- Dome hole tanks designed for easier media replacement/replenishment
Our 3M™ Twin Tank Iron Reduction Water Treatment System 3MAPPM150 treats all incoming water and reduces iron, hydrogen and sulfide gas. An air pump introduces air into the water on the outlet side of the pressure tank to oxidize the iron. Notably, 3MAPPM150 is also chemical free and allows the user to make adjustments to pH levels.
- 1"/2.5 cm inlet/outlet connections
- 1.5 cu ft media capacity
- 25 - 100 psi/172 - 689 kPa pressure range
- 40 - 100°F/4.4 - 37.8°C temperature range
- Flow rate: service up to 7 gpm /26 lpm. Backwash up to 5.3 gpm/20.0 lpm
- Fully ported four position bypass valve

Iron Reduction: How it Works
Here's how it works: the air pump adds a controlled amount of air to the aeration tank. As the water falls through the formed air pocket it absorbs oxygen. Next, the oxygen starts the natural oxidation process of iron causing it to precipitate and filter the iron. Water then passes into the filter tank which contains a natural mineral media bed. The water's pH is then raised, accelerating the oxidation process. The ferrous iron is oxidized and adheres to the media throughout the filter bed (not just on the surface). This gives the tank a larger iron holding capacity than iron filters such as the 3MAPIF system. When the filter tank fills up with iron particles, it automatically backwashes, sending the accumulated iron to drain. Once the process is complete, the mineral filter bed is clean and ready for service again.
Using our 3M™ Twin Tank Iron Reduction Water Treatment System 3MAPPM150 uses depth filtration which saves water and energy compared with surface filtration. This extends the period between regeneration cycles. Additionally, the state-of-the-art valve allows monitoring and control of every function and cycle. Users enjoy the benefits of the valve's precision, which saves water and energy due to frequency of backwash cycles. Collectively, these features are designed for long-term operation to save users time, money and energy.
