Issues with sand filters.
Our company understands issues related to sand filtration and how they can contribute to inefficiency within water-based processes.
For example, when oil comes in contact with a sand filter it will cause portions of the bed to become clogged and is very difficult to clean, even in extended backwash cycles.
These conditions contribute to increased treatment and disposal costs and potentially water that is not properly cleaned.
Sand filter beds need to be replaced every few years.
Filtra-Systems provides replacement technology for a sand filter that will revolutionize our industrial water filtration systems. These walnut shell filters can help your company reduce the cost of replacing the bed and by achieving low backwash volumes.
Updating your existing sand filters to walnut shell filters can benefit your company in many ways.
First, by removing oil-based contaminants efficiently can prevent frequent issues that a typical sand filter, such as “mudballed” portions of the bed.
Next, our latest technology can help improve water usage, cut operating costs, and improve the flow of water. Solutions offered as a replacement technology for a sand filter are patented and incorporated through detailed cycles, with limited use of chemical compounds.
Finally, the STiR Walnut Shell Filter overcomes the limits of sand filters in several important ways, such as higher particle removal efficiencies, especially of oils and greases.
Even better, the walnut shell media in the STiR never needs to be replaced, while sand filter beds need to be replaced every 3-5 years (or sooner, when exposed to oil).
