Sand and Carbon Filters

Water treatment systems keep water clean and healthy and are vital for many industries. Filtration is an important element of all water treatment systems whether they are for industrial effluent, wastewater, drinking water, processed water, or bottled spring water. While there are many types of filters, the equipment many industries use includes sand and carbon filters. Typically, these remove suspended solids and pathogens that aren’t destroyed during other processes.  

Industrial sand filters commonly use single-size media (sand) that is variable and can be changed to suit various applications. They are used to remove suspended solids from the water. There are, though, also multimedia sand filters that are very effective when finer-sized solids have to be removed. 

Industrial carbon filters use granulated activated carbon (GAC) to remove chemicals from water. They are also effective for removing unpleasant odors and tastes, including chlorine, from water.
