Turbidity Removal Media:

A radically high performance silt, sediment and turbidity media.


Turbidity Media is based on a rare natural mineral that is highly processed and graded. Its unique properties allow it to radically alter the performance and cost of media filtration. The hardness, stability and micro porous character of this media makes it a perfect filtration media for virtually every application in the water and wastewater treatment industry.

Filtration Performance

Water filtration, apart from the removal of solids and colloids, increasingly demands the efficient removal contaminants including heavy metals and other toxic substances, bacteria and other parasites. Conventional sand filter systems do no remove all contaminants and therefore alternative or additional systems are required so that the water quality meets compliance regulations. The filtering abilities of the turbidity removal media offer a versatile and environmentally friendly option to capture most contaminants found in water systems. The media can perform these functions due to their high ion exchange capacity, adsorption-desorption energies and ability to modification.

It can also remove ammonium (NH4+) and metal captions Pb, Cu, Cd, Zn, Co, Cr, Mn and Fe from solutions with the recovery of ammonium and some metals as high as 97%
