Plants Media Filtration

PCC provides Plants for the following:

Media Filtration Plants

The removal of suspended and colloidal particles by media filtration is based on their deposition on the surface of filter grains while the water flows through a bed of these grains. The quality of the filtrate depends on the size, surface charge, and geometry of both suspended solids and filter media as well as on the water analysis and operational parameters. We provide following filters:

Sand Filtration

Sand acts as a coarse natural filter and provides a level of purification that removes mud, silt and larger debris. Sand filters are one of the most popular ways to filter water for good reasons they are simple, effective and require very little attention. Water is routed through a sand-filled pressure vessel, over time dirt accumulates in the spaces between the sand particles causing the pressure in the vessel to rise as water finds it harder to pass through.

Carbon Filtration

Activated carbon is widely used in water filtration systems. Carbon is very effective at improving taste, removing chlorine and many other contaminants. Since organic chemicals are often responsible for taste, odor, and color problems, AC filtration can generally be used to improve aesthetically objectionable water.

Iron Removal Systems

One of the most common contaminants of well and even municipal water systems is iron. Iron contamination can be found in two general forms, ferric iron which consists of particles of solid iron (rust) that can be removed by mechanical water filter (sediment filters) and ferrous or dissolved iron which must be removed from water by special iron water filters.

Cartridge Filters

Cartridge filtration units generally operate most effectively and economically on applications having contamination of solid particles. It eliminates the need for backwashing and requires less maintenance.

Birm Filters

Birm Filter is an efficient and economical media for the reduction of dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. It may be used in either gravity fed or pressurized water treatment systems. Birm acts as an insoluble catalyst to enhance the reaction between dissolved oxygen and the iron compounds.
