Filter systems KIF

Filter systems for filtration, iron removal and demanganisation

The standard filter systems of Type KIF (gravel filter systems) manufactured by us are ready-to-operate performance units. The performance data for filtration, iron removal and demanganisation specified below are based on values obtained through many years of experience and are used for orientation. Strictly, verification of design must be carried out using current raw water values as a basis. Deacidification filters, activated carbon filters and GIH filters must always be designed to suit a particular application. Our experts will be pleased to advise you at any time.
