Water filtration is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids, and gases from water. The goal is to produce water fit for specific purposes. Water filtration products such as sand filters, multimedia filters, cartridge, and bag filters, may reduce the concentration of particulate matter including suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae, viruses, and fungi as well as reduce the concentration of a range of dissolved and particulate matter.
Sand filtration is the most commonly used method for the media filtration process in both water and wastewater treatment plants as a primary or tertiary filtration process based on the source of water and treated water.
Sand Media filters remove suspended solids, particles and particulate matter from treated wastewater and process water. It has different layers of media inside the vessel that ranges from types and sizes. A sand filter system will have gravels, pebbles, sands of different sizes, and anthracite inside the filtration vessel.
When different media are introduced to the filtration design, this is more commonly known as a multimedia or dual media filtration process. Sand Media filtration is the most widely used method in the industries for filtering almost all sources of water depending on the source and end-use. In the wastewater treatment plants, it is installed as a tertiary treatment post-biological process as polishing units.
