Filter-AgFilter - Ag is a filter media based on non-aqueous silica dioxide. It is designed to reduce contents of suspended particles in water.
- Improved dirt holding capacity
- Saves your money, due to high capacity and low regeneration costs
- Eco-friendly, because it's made of chemically inert material
Used in water purification pressure and gravity filters. Thanks to its density, Filter-Ag can also be applied in multimedia filters, incl. sediment filters Ecosoft FP.
Filter-Ag can remove particles having a size of 20-40 microns (sand, silt, etc.). The structure of the granules is angular, which contributes to a more active retention of particles, including iron in low concentrations.
low pressure loss at the Filter-Ag bed compared to other filter media
lightweight reduces water consumption during backwash
high efficiency results in lower expenses related to the equipment
high sediments reduction capacity leads to longer service life of the media
replacement of sand with Filter-Ag increases filter capacity by 100% or more
Filter-Ag Plus is a natural mineral clinoptilolite that possesses impressive advantages compared to those intrinsic to traditional sand and mixed filter media used for suspended solids reduction.
Through a scanning electron microscope its granules look like polyhedrons with textured surface and microscopic pores with size larger than 3 microns. These features make their surface over 100 times bigger than that of quartz sand.
Angularity of the granules and tapering pores contribute to retention of dirt, silt and organic matter suspended in the water by means of flocculation, steric effect and adhesion. The textured surface and porosity provide larger surface to effectively retain the suspended impurities.
In the filtering process water enters the filter vessel, passes through a layer of media, which detains mechanical impurities (sand, rust, silt, etc.).
When contaminants "clog" the free space of the material, the pressure drop in the filter increases and the productivity drops. In this case, the Filter-Ag is flushed and back flushed with a reverse flow of water. After it, the filter is ready to purify the water again.
