Industrial Water Media Filtration Systems
CHUNKE industrial water media filtration systems are in a variety of service conditions including, but not limited to: industrial, municipal, and institutional applications. Firstly, CHUNKE’s pressure filters clarify water by removing sediment, turbidity, iron, unpleasant tastes and odors, suspended particles, and unwanted color. So, all of which are commonly found in surface water. Depends on your water source and capacity, we offer stainless steel 304, 316, carbon steel or fiberglass reinforced plastic FRP water media filtration tanks.
Which media types can one use in industrial water media filtration systems?
- Activated carbon medium: remove taste, odor, organic contaminants, and chlorine as well as being used in many drinking water applications accordingly.
- Sand is the most common filter media. Generally, it is fine mesh sand with a coarse grain support bed to remove suspended solids and turbidity.
- Gravel has a highly spherical shape that promotes good flow and even distribution in support beds consequently.
- Anthracite: as a filter medium where additional silica in the water is not desirable and can remove lighter weight turbidity. Anthracite is typically used in applications where silica pick-up is undesirable.
- Calcite media is specially a kind of calcium carbonate compound for neutralizing acid with consistent dissolving rates for water treatment.
- Manganese Greensand media: it treats with siliceous material for treating water containing iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide through oxidation.
- Multimedia: when you require maximum quality water and unwanted sediment is too small to remove by standard media. It consists of multiple layers of increasing grain size to remove sediment as small as 10 microns.
What is the advantage of industrial water media filtration systems?
- Relatively inexpensive, no recurring cost of consumables
- Proven process and most tested forms of water treatment
- Systems are robust with no moving parts inside the tanks
- Manual or autimatic control valves designs for operational flexibility
- Filtration media is inexpensive and long-lasting
- Easily clean and maintenance accordingly
- Resistant to fouling (clogging) for reverse osmosis membrane
Can we backwash or clean media in water media filter tank?
When the filter begins to clog or when the head loss (pressure drop) through the bed increases, lower flow rates. To prevent degradation of water quality, reverse the flow. So, control valves direct it to drain, carrying with it, the particulate matter that has built up during service. The required flow is specific to the media and is essential to proper cleaning of the media bed accordingly. For media filters, the backwash flow is always higher than the service flow rate.
