Turbidex Hyper Filtration Media, Sediment, floculants, color, Higher flows than Multi media!!
Hyper Filtration Efficiency - With filtration efficiency in the 3 to 5 micron range, Tubidex’s enhanced performance results in down stream cost savings for chemicals, filter cartridges, membrane cleaning, membrane life, etc.
Higher Flow Rates - With nominal service flow rates up to 15 gpm/ft2 in pressure filters, Turbidex™ allows significant savings in initial equipment costs when compared to traditional medias. Turbidex™ allows for peak flow rates up to 20 gpm/ft2 Turbidex
Superior Water Clarity - Traditional sediment filtration media rely on mechanical straining to remove suspended solids for turbidity reduction. Turbidex™ filtration media incorporates straining as well as ion exchange, sedimentation and flocculation to produce crystal clear water down to <0.1 NTU of turbidity.
Water Savings - The loading capacity of Turbidex™ media is up to 1.5 times greater than multi-media and up to 2.8 times greater than sand filters. This results in longer run times with less frequent backwashing, resulting in significant water savings.
Lightweight Media - Weighing 50-70% less than traditional medias, using Turbidex™ will result in substantial freight savings.
