Water is a necessity for all life
Drinking water is our most important source of nutrients, and water quality requirements are, and should be, strict.
To achieve good quality drinking water, different types of treatment are used based on the quality of the raw water. For many of these treatment processes, Filtralite® is an excellent filter media.
Filtralite filter media is made by burning of clay at about 1200° C, followed by crushing and sieving. The material has a porous structure and when crushed, a large surface area is exposed. Dry particle densities in the range 500-1,600 kg/m3, and aggregate sizes in the range 0-20 mm, can be «tailor-made» to the specific application. The aggregates do not release harmful substances, and the acid solubility is minimal. Despite its low density and high porosity, Filtralite has high abrasion and impact resistance.
Filtralite is inert ceramic particles with a dense shell surrounding a porous core.
Three main types of Filtralite are available, with three different densities. For drinking water applications, crushed material is used. this gives angular grains and allows the porous core to be exposed to the water.
Application of Filtralite®
Filtralite is inert ceramic particles with a dense shell surrounding a porous core. This makes it suitable for use in different drinking water processes such as:
- Physical filtration
- Biological filtration
- Pre-treatment for desalination
