Multi-Media Filtration Silicon Sand Filter Apply to reduce the level of suspended solids (turbidity) in process water treatment. Treatment Capacity: 1---50m3/hour Filter tank material: FRP or Carbon Steel with Corrosive coating or SUS304
A Multi-Media Filtration Silicon Sand Filter is used to reduce the level of suspended solids (turbidity) in process water treatment. Suspended solids can consist of small particles such as silt, clay, grit, organic matter, larvae, zooplankton, algae and other microorganisms. The filtration degree of a multi-media filter depends heavily on the filter media and flow (velocity) through the filter. A typical multimedia filter setup contains three layers of filling. Those are anthracite, sand and gravel.
This filter package allows the entire filter bed to function longer between backwashes. A well operated filter removes particles down to 15-20 microns. With use of a coagulant addition, it can filter particles down to 5-10 microns.
Over time the pressure drops over the filter rises while the flow remains the same, due to the adhered suspended solids. Eventually the filter media needs to be cleaned, a process called backwashing.
