Sediment Reduction Filter
Turbidex is a natural clinoptilolite ore that has many outstanding advantages over common filter sands used for sediment reduction, as it is very angular, rough surfaced and has microporous void spaces as small as 3 microns.
This creates a surface area over 100 times greater than sand and can reduce suspended solids down to 5 microns or less. Turbidex prevents the rapid build up of head loss and binding associated with sand filters and allows longer periods between back washes. Because of its high porosity and hydrophylic nature,
Turbidex can operate at much higher flow rates than conventional sediment filters.
The filters are also fully automated so that they perform the required backwash in order to purge the system of filtered sediment automatically. This would would normally be in the middle of the night in order to not interrupt service.
