How many filter media types do you know?

Aug 08, 2016

Why a pressure filter? Our air filters can be used in a variety of service conditions including, but not limited to industrial, municipal, and institutional applications. For problems with iron, suspended particles, sediment, turbidity, unpleasant tastes and odors, unwanted color, or the common contaminants of surface water, Pure Aqua’s pressure filters are the ideal purification solution.

industrial filter media

Manganese Greensand media is treated siliceous material for treating water containing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide through oxidation.

Anthracite is recommended as a filter medium where additional silica in the water is not desirable and can remove lighter weight turbidity. Anthracite is typically used in applications where silica pick-up is undesireable.

ProSand is based on a rare natural mineral. Its unique properties radically improve the performance and cost of media filtration.

Calcite media is specially graded calcium carbonate compound for neutralizing acid with consistent dissolving rates for water treatment.

Filter AG is non-hydrous silicon dioxide with many advantages for the reduction of suspended matter.

Activated carbon medium is used to remove taste, odor, organic contaminants, and chlorine as well as being used in many drinking water applications.

Sand is the most common filter media. Generally, fine mesh sand is coupled with a course grain support bed to remove suspended solids and turbidity. Graded in various ranges, Pure Aqua sand can be used as filtration medium or underbedding depending on particle size and application.

Gravel has a highly spherical shape that promotes good flow and even distribution in support beds.

Multimedia is required when maximum quality water is required and unwanted sediment is too small to be removed by standard media. It consists of multiple layers of increasing grain size to remove sediment as small as 10 microns.
