Pressure Sand Filtration

Sand filtration is frequently used to remove suspended solids from water. The filtration medium consists of a multiple layer of sand with a variety in size and specific gravity. Sand filters can be supplied in different sizes and materials both hand operated or fully automatically.

The filter will effectively remove up to 30 – 50 micron of the suspended solids to less than 5 ppm. The filter will have to be washed with raw water for 20 to 30 minutes daily.

Sand filtration can be used in the preparation of cooling water, treatment of wastewater, pre-filtration for membrane systems or filtration of grey or surface water among other applications.
