Hyper-Filtration Media for Industrial & Potable Water Treatment Systems
Turbidex™ is more than our name it’s the product as well. Turbidex™ granules consist of a high surface area alumino- silicate mineral that provides exceptional suspended solids filtration. The macro porous nature of Turbidex™ allows for filtration at levels below 5 Microns in particle size.
The irregular surface area and extensive porosity of Turbidex™ makes it the perfect filtration media for any application where solids removal is essential to the process.
Hyper Filtration Efficiency
With filtration efficiency in the 3 to 5 micron range, Tubidex’s enhanced performance results in down stream cost savings for chemicals, filter cartridges,
membrane cleaning, membrane life, etc.
Higher Flow Rates
With nominal service flow rates up to 15 gpm/ft2 in pressure filters, Turbidex™ allows significant savings in initial equipment costs when compared to traditional medias. Turbidex™ allows for peak flow rates up to 20 gpm/ft2
Superior Water Clarity
Traditional sediment filtration media rely on mechanical straining to remove suspended solids for turbidity reduction. Turbidex™ filtration media incorporates straining as well as ion exchange, sedimentation and flocculation to produce crystal clear water down to <0.1 NTU of turbidity.
The loading capacity of Turbidex™ media is up to 1.5 times greater than multi- media and up to 2.8 times greater than sand filters. This results in longer run times with less freq- uent backwashing, resulting in significant water savings.
Lightweight Media Weighing 50-70% less than traditional medias, using Turbidex™ will result in substantial freight savings.
Easier to Inventory and Install
A single media versus multiple medias simplifies ordering, shipping and warehousing. Loading one media allows for a quick and easy installation.
