The Mass Transfer Tank is a very important component of the micron filtration system. It is a fully patented process that vortex has developed that extends the life of the micron filters by up to five times the normal length and acts as a retention tank when needed. The dimensions of the tank are fourteen inches in diameter by fifty-five inches high. It is made with three distinctively important components to make it operate.


The water enters the top of tank from the pressure system traveling down a riser tube. Within the tank the water will first go through a patented Vortex mechanical mixer/oscillator. The Mixer/oscillator is a fully serviceable component when required and contains four turbines which are designed to operate when water is flowing through it. The turning and cutting action of these turbines create a large amount of agitation and cavitation as a result, this action separates the heavy particulates from the water. These particulates then travel further down the riser to the bottom of the tank exiting out through a Vortex patented distributor. This distributer is made up of five arms that have been engineered to distribute the water equally and create an up flow vortex within the interior of the tank. As the water exits the distributer it travels back up from the bottom of the tank through 120 contact elements.


These contact elements are a specially designed food-grade pvc mesh which are configured into contact elements. Each contact element has two square feet of surface area which when combined increase the internal area to over 240 square feet of contact area. They circulate within the tank and gather the heavy particulates that have been precipitated out of the water. These elements are designed to last forever depending on the quality of the water and in most cases by simply opening up the drain at the bottom of the tank at least once a month for one to two minutes. By doing this under pressure the Vortex Distributor creates an updraft and agitation that cleans the particulates off the elements.


One important factor, an advantage of the mass transfer tank, is that if your water requires pre-treatment such as air injection, UV, chlorine or ozone, the system does not require large tanks to achieve the retention time required. The water leaves the mass transfer tank into two stand-up micron filter housings which have been designed for the simple replacement of filters.
