Color Removal in Water Treatment

Color can be the result of several constituents in a supply water, but typically results from tannins and lignins (i.e., dissolved organic matter) or other naturally occurring compounds. 

Tonka Water’s proven solution for color removal is ion exchange utilizing anion exchange resin specifically designed for removing the organics associated with color.
