What is Media Filtration?
Media filtration involves pumping water through a pressurized bed of water treatment media. Systems can utilize different medias depending on the treatment need and are also configurable with automated backwashing functionality.
How it Works
Water is pumped under pressure through a bed of filtration media. As material builds up on the top of the media bed, it creates a pressure differential between the top and bottom of the filter. Filters with automated backwashing features monitor this pressure differential in real-time and can automatically trigger backwash cycles when pressures exceed design criteria. The backwash process uses feed water to reverse flow on each media vessel, one pod at a time, until all of the pods have been cleaned. At the end of the backwash cycle, the pressure differential is restored to baseline, and the filter returns to normal use.
