Rust-Buster RBF System

Rust-Buster RBF System

Rust-Buster RBF Oxidising, Flocking and Catalytic Filter System

  • Removes rust, soluble iron, manganese, hydrogen sulphide and reduces arsenic in bore and well waters
  • Disinfects water and kills bacteria
  • For iron levels up to 150 mg/l and manganese to 10 mg/l
  • Uses clarification and catalytic multi media filtration
  • Produces lowest waste water volume of any high iron treatment system
  • Treats bore water by a settling process reducing solids before filtration making the system robust for treating heavy loadings of rust
