June 2017 - Urban Campsite Amsterdam: when there is to much iron in the water
May 2017 - Making waves
We have recently installed a Villagepump at the Urban Campsite Amsterdam. Due to the high concentration of iron in the raw water, we have provided this unit with a simple add-on filter for removing iron. This filter is located between the feed pump and the Ultrafiltration membrane and installed outside the Villagepump. The water first passes this filter before it enters the UF membrane. Inlet water is low level ground water with a concentration of iron more than 1,5 mg/liter. The outlet water has a concentration of less than 0,4 mg/liter.
The iron removal unit is expected to be replaced every 6 to 9 months.
