What Are the Benefits of Walnut Shell Industrial Water Filters Over Traditional Sand Filters?

There are many advantages to the use of walnut shell media over that of sand, especially when removing oil and suspended solids.

Walnut shell filters are bed filters, meaning they work by removing contaminants through granular media before they are removed through a tortuous path moving through the media. Once the walnut shells are filled with contaminants, they are backwashed, which is cleaning the bed (filter media) without the added cost of media disposal.

The STiR technology used in Filtra-Systems industrial filtration systems has proven to clean 100% of the filter media during each backwash cycle saving you time and media costs.
