The comprehensive experience in design and engineering includes:
Media Filters are more substantial in design than cartridge filters and apart from the media enclosed, are all similar in construction.
The media is enclosed in a pressure vessel of steel or glassreinforced plastic fibre construction with inlet and outlet nozzles. Each media vessel is complete with all frontal pipework and valves, to allow the filter to be backwashed and rinsed when necessary.
An internal distribution system, with upper and lower distributors, ensures an even flow through the media bed. The media bed contains the actual filtering medium, supported by a layer of gravel.
The following type of filters are in common use:
Sand Filters - Removal
of suspended solids
Activated Carbon Filters - Removal of chlorine and odor by absorption
Iron Removal Filters - Removal of iron by oxidation and filtration
Media filters could be supplied with manual or automatic valves depending upon Client's request.
