TURBIDEX-50-BOX, Sediment Filter Media, 1/2 Cu. Ft. UPS B, TURBIDEX-50-BOX


Hyper Filtration Efficiency – With filtration efficiency in the 3 to 5 micron range, Tubidexs 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 Turbidex

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.

Water Savings – 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 frequent backwashing, resulting in significant water savings.

Lightweight Media – Weighing 50-70% less than traditional medias, using Turbidex will result in substantial freight savings.
