Media Filter Vessel
WESCOR media filtration equipment is available for Single filtration, Multi-Media or Granular Activated Carbon filtration of industrial effluent. Media filtration provides effective treatment of suspended solids, or can be targeted to remove dissolved organic and inorganic contaminants with appropriate media selection. The large size and three dimensional nature of a media bed provides more surface area and has a greater holding capacity than many other types of filters.
Water to be treated is pumped through the filtration vessel and evenly distributed across the surface of the filtration media. As water flows downward through the vessel, particulate matter is captured within the media bed. Filtered water exits through a discharge manifold located in the bottom of the vessel. Material captured in the media bed accumulates and is then purged from the vessel by a short backwashing process which can be configured for manual, or automatic operation.
