Media Filtration Removes Unwanted Particles

Media filtration is suitable for all types of water systems, ranging from industrial applications to commercial use.

Media filtration is a low-maintenance water treatment method that removes a large number of particulates from water or wastewater. When water flows through the filtration media, it removes particles from the liquid, which is known as media filtration. Filters from Trionetics are used to remove a variety of small particles, including silt, iron, chlorine and organic compounds. Fine sand makes up the top layer of the filter media, which traps tiny particles. The filter media’s underlying layers support the sand and enable for efficient drainage of the filtered water. The type of media required will be determined by the water supply. The procedure and length of time it takes for water to flow through a water filtration system are determined by the water’s intended usage.

Various toxins may end up in your system depending on where your water comes from. Trionetics’ media filtration systems can help you get rid of some of the worst offenders from your water supply. Groundwater leaks are often blamed for the presence of particulate debris and organic contaminants, which can result in poor water quality in your plant. Chlorine can make water unsuitable for certain procedures while iron can corrode pipes and create color stains over time. These issues can be avoided with a Trionetics media filter, resulting in superior water quality.

Whether you already know what kind of water filtration device you need or have questions about the best equipment for your system, one of our certified specialists is here to help. Turbidity (Haziness) reduction, facility water and cooling water are just a few of the applications for our water filtration systems. To save money, your company might even lease water filtering equipment. Having a reliable, well-functioning water treatment system will make all the difference. Trionetics has done it all–from keeping your closed water loop gear working smoothly to keeping your production water pure.

Multimedia Filtration

In contrast to a “sand filter,” which normally employs only one grade of sand as the filtration media, multimedia filtration refers to a pressure filter vessel that uses three or more distinct media. The finest or tiniest media particles remain on top of the media bed during the “settling” cycle in a single media filter, while the larger, heavier particles stratify proportionally to their mass deeper in the filter. Because practically all filterable particles are trapped at the very top of the filter bed, or within 1-2 inches of the top where the filter media particles have the least space between them, the media depth is only used to a limited extent. The filter’s run duration is thus very brief before it “blinds” or produces so much head pressure that it needs to be backwashed to prevent the flow from becoming substantially impeded or stopped.

Granulated Activated Carbon

A granular activated carbon (GAC) filter is a tried and true way to remove certain pollutants from water, particularly organic compounds. GAC filters can also be used to filter out compounds like hydrogen sulfide (rotten eggs odor) and chlorine, which give water an unpleasant odor or flavor. However, other chemicals, like as iron and nitrate, are not attracted to the carbon and are not removed, necessitating the use of a different filter, such as reverse osmosis (RO) or green sand.
