Exploring The Benefits Of Walnut Shell Media Filters

Here at Filtra-Systems, we seek to overcome the limits of regular bed type industrial water filters. In doing so, we leverage a maximum efficiency design for bed regeneration, which is utilized in both the STiR Walnut Shell Filter and Hydromation Deep Bed Filter. The design, construction, and application of these walnut shell filters are a direct result of our company’s attention to customer feedback throughout over thirty years of operation. The Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filter is now used in hundreds of applications worldwide, in a variety of settings. This post will explain why industries should consider gravitating toward these walnut shell filters.

A Truly Unique System

Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filters are unique in that their media scrubbing cycle wholly regenerates the filter media during every backwash cycle, through a process that is automatically initiated. This occurs in cases when the filter bed becomes laden with contaminants. The backwash is signaled by an automatic preset time notification or when an increase in filter bed pressure differential is observed.

A Leader In The Chemical And Mining Filtration Fields

Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filters are field leaders in the mining and chemical industries. These walnut shell filters are deep bed, downflow media filters that are made for oily industrial water filtration. The way that these systems work is as follows:

  • Liquid passes through the media bed
  • All oil and solids are effectively trapped in the bed
  • These oils and solids can easily be backwashed away from the media bed through Filtra-Systems patented rotating media scrubber design
  • Chemicals, surfactants, and air sparging cycles are unnecessary for the backwash to function properly

The Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filter is a demonstration of the best available technology when it comes to backwashing the media bed. The design of the backwash assembly also allows for the building of large horizontal units that can treat extremely high flow rates.

Operation

Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filters are normally applied to eliminate insoluble hydrocarbons and suspended solids from oily wastewater, plant process water, cooling water, and groundwater in low to high water volume filtration applications. Additionally, these walnut shell filters remove and treat oily residues, suspended solids, and metal hydroxides from industrial water in power generation, chemical, petrochemical, and metalworking applications. Also, Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filters offer industries the removal of suspended solids and hydrocarbons by increasing the throughput efficiency of conventional grade mixed-media or sand filters.

Customized To Customer Needs

In addition to all of its standard benefits, the Hydromation Walnut Shell Media Filter is entirely customized to customer needs. Regardless of specific on-site requirements, Filtra-Systems provides all clients with the optimal size of filter unit. The Filtra-System support system is also optimally set up, with lab analysis, engineering, installation, and customer support available worldwide.
