Pure Aqua manufactured and supplied Duplex Multimedia filter complete with fleck 3150 valve, differential pressure switch and no hard water bypass to a major company in Kuwait. The system was designed to produce 72,000 GPD.
Since its startup, the filtration system has been running smoothly with minimal trouble-shooting. For satisfactory results, the plant took advantage of the following grades of media: Anthracite, Silica Sand, and Gravel.
Anthracite is a type of coal that evaporates fast and also claims a larger quantity of fixed carbon than any other type of coal. It is utilized as a filter medium to take out lighter weight turbidity and the additional silica that exists in water. Anthracite has a low bulk density which promotes enormous savings on backwash.
Silica Sand is a lime-free and chemically inert type of sand known widely around the world. Silica sand or silicon dioxide (SiO2) is utilized as a filtration bed for many particulates and comes graded in several ranges depending on practical size and application.
Gravel promotes good flow and an equal distribution in support beds due to its highly spherical shape. Gravel claims a decreased amount of soluble impurities and comes graded in three types of layers: coarse, medium, and fine. Multi-Media Filters are designed to decrease or eliminate turbidity and suspended solids from well water, surface water, or seawater, and can also be utilized for some applications of wastewater. To eliminate turbidity and suspended solids to lower than 30 microns, filters with either two or three layers of filtration media are required. These powerful filters can take out turbidity and suspended solids as low as 10 microns if they were sized and designed properly. Multi-Media Filters are designed to treat certain types of waters for drinking, irrigation, cooling, and swimming.
