Tannin Water Filter Systems
Tannins (humic acid) are caused by decaying vegetation and cause yellow-brown water and staining. Levels over 0.5ppm cause staining and interfere with Iron Filter Systems.
Hellenbrand engineers and manufactures both Whole House Tannin Filters and Commercial Filters to remove these nuisance organics. These systems are all self cleaning, and come in a variety of sizes as will as single and twin tank systems.

Ion Exchange Tannin Resin
Hellenbrand uses a long lasting, macroporous anion resin that provides rapid adsorption kinetics. This means Tannins are quickly removed as water passes through the Filter. Once the resin beads are loaded with Tannins, the system can efficiently regenerate the resin with standard water softener salt.
Tannin Filter Control Center
Tannin Filters are different than Water Softeners. The 9 cycle ProMate 6 controller is custom programmed for optimal soaking and rinsing required by Tannin Resin. The controller automatically adjusts the reserve capacity to protect the resin from fouling and to make sure you never run out of clean water.
Enhanced Cleaning System
If the pores in tannin resin plug up with hard water, iron, or dirt, they lose their functionality. For resin to stay clean, it needs to backwash and flush out this foreign material.
Standard Tannin Filters have a weak backwash that simply rises up through the resin bed like blowing bubbles in a glass of milk with a straw.
The Hellenbrand Vortech Plate acts like an agitator in a laundry machine and sends a powerful circular flow through the resin bed. This aggressive flushing knocks out debris for superior resin cleaning.
