Razor® Garnet Water Filtration media:
- Multi-media (mixed media) filter systems are used to filter out particles.
- Water filtration media layers are usually make up of sand, anthracite coal and garnet.
- Mixed-media filters have a coarse-to-fine gradation of filter media layering
- Usgeing Razor® Garnet which has a high density solves a major filtration problem. This stable condition of large grains above finer one is achieved by the use of filter material of different sizes and specific gravities.
- A properly designed multi-media filter system contains filter media of large grains on top and small grains on the bottom of the filter and provides superior performance even after many backwash.
- By using fine media with a high specific gravity, the layers of media approximately maintain their respective positions in the filter bed even after backwashing.
- Some mixing does occur. Mixing actually makes the filters more effective by providing more contact area for the suspended particles.
- The hefty particles getting into the entire filter bed result in increased particles entrapment, longer filter runs and higher filtration rates.
- In operation, the coarse layer on top traps the larger suspended particles. The finer particles pass through this layer and are trapped by finer media below.
- This results in longer filter life and higher filtration rates because head loss does not build up as quickly.
Razor® Garnet filtration Advantages
- Due to its high specific gravity; it provides unique filter design as an excellent support bed for other filter medias
- The high hardness of GARNET reduce attrition and extends the life time of the filter bed and provides for years of reliable service
- Chemically inert and stable
