AFM Glass Media
AFM Glass Media like silica sand is used to capture sediment, dirt and other particles from water.
Also like silica sand the glass media can be backwashed and flushed to remove the particles captured inside.
The AFM Glass media has several advantages over the normal silica sand used to remove particles and dirt:
- The AFM Glass Media has a life span of up to 20 years, before the media needs to be replaced. Whereas silica sand only typically last 1 to 5 years before needing replacement, depending on the source water quality.
- Where silica sand and other types of cleanable / reusable filter systems typically filter water to around a maximum of 20 microns, AFM Glass media filters the water down to around 3 micron (AFM Glass media 0.5 to 1mm).
- The AFM Glass Media is Negatively charged to help absorb some organic molecules from water.
- The AFM Glass media has a metal oxide catalysts, which helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria on the media and so increases the life span of the media.
