Turbidex granules consist of a high surface area alumino-silicate mineral that provides exceptional suspended solids filtration. The macro porous nature of TurbidexTM allows for filtration at levels below 5 Microns in particle size.
The irregular surface area and extensive porosity of Turbidex makes it the perfect filtration media for any application where solids removal is essential to the process.
Equipment can be smaller or faster flow rates can be achieved for a given size. Particles down to 5 to 10 micron are typically removed. Turbidex must be soaked before use.
How does it work?
Water flows into the valve at the top, down through the media and then up through the riser tube in the middle of the vessel. As the water travels through the media the sediment is trapped so only clean clear water flows out to service. There are timer options that can be set to automatically self clean (backwash) and wash away any of the accumulated sediment.
