Turbidex sediment and turbidity filter media is efficient to the 3 to 5 micron range.
Tubidex’s enhanced performance results in cost savings for chemicals, filter cartridges, membrane cleaning, membrane life, and more.
Turbidex offer higher flow rates than other filter medias. With nominal service flow rates up to 15 gpm/ft2 in pressure filters. Turbidex™ allows for peak flow rates up to 20 gpm/ft2.
Turbidex offers 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. Turbidex saves water. 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.
