Nitrate Removal - Nitrate Filter Case Study

Nitrate Reduction System

Trinity Lutheran Family Center in Hudson, Wi had frequently tested over 10ppm (parts per million) of Nitrates which is above the MCL (maximum contamination level) set by the EPA. This resulted in required signs alerting the occupants of the building of the nitrate contamination. Because this was unacceptable for the Family Center who cares greatly for its members and children, Merle's Water Conditioning was contacted to recommend a solution.


Contaminated Drinking Water   Nitrate Notice


The challenge required a treatment device capable of removing nitrates for all water used in the building at a rate of up to 40 gallons per minute. The system would also have to gain approval by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Ion exchange with a nitrate selective anion resin was chosen as the most effective method, configured as a Triplex Progressive Flow System. This technology operates similar to a water softener with a single unit online and as water demand increases the additional tanks are automatically activated. This design proves to be effective in maintaining efficiencies in the system while meeting the peak demands of the building. The water treatment equipment is manufactured by Hellenbrand Inc., who are the leading manufacturers of high quality and advanced softening and filtration products.


Commercial Nitrate Filter

I have used Merles services now for over 10 years and have always felt respected and well cared for through the exceptional service. They even had a solution to a TINY space in a townhome that I never imagined they could put a softener into! Thank you so much for the great service and wonderful local business!
