SEDIMENT, TURBIDITY BACKWASH FILTER
next Sand offers a single bed media made from high purity Clinoptilolite, which delivers superior performance over conventional filter sands or multimedia, and at a lower cost.
The material is mined in the Western USA and then highly processed and graded; the resulting product is hard and stable with a high surface area and microporous character in addition to surface micro-crystals making it an ideal filter media.
next Sand has high filtration performance at <5 microns compared to 12 to 15 micron for multi media. It also has a higher flow capacity, typically three to four times that of multimedia. This higher flow rate means a greater performance can be achieved from existing vessels when upgraded with next Sand, or for new applications, smaller filter vessels would be required to achieve the same results.
Filtration through the entire media bed depth provides more than twice the capacity of multimedia filtration. It has a higher dirt holding capacity so requires less frequent backwashing, leading to reduced downtime. Lighter weight and lower volume requirement mean lower capital and shipping costs than multimedia and the product also lasts longer. The media isn’t consumed in the filtration process; a simple periodic backwash will keep the media clean and operating efficiently for five years or more.
