5 GPM/ft2 Service Flow

Filter-Ag is rated for 5 GPM service flow per SQUARE FOOT of tank area

Min. 8 GPM/ft2 Backwash Flow

Filter-Ag requires 8-10 GPM per SQUARE foot of tank area for backwashing

Product Description

Highly efficient Filter-Ag media is a silica, crystalline quartz media providing for the reduction of suspended matter and for clearing up turbidity. The light weight of the media allows for high service flow rates and lower backwash rates. Replacing sand with Filter-Ag media in existing installations may increase filter capacity 100% or more. Amount of media needed can be determined by tank sizes below

8"x44" Tank - 0.5 cubic foot

9"x48" Tank - 1 cubic foot

10"x54" Tank - 1.5 cubic feet

12"x48" Tank - 2 cubic feet

13"x54" Tank - 3 cubic feet

Service Flows
Service flow rate is the manufacturers recommendation for maximum contaminant removal at a constant flow for media alone. Intermittent flow rate and/or lower contaminant levels MAY allow higher treatment flow rates.

Backwash Flow Rates
The backwash flow rate is the minimum rate that MUST be available to ensure proper backwashing and adequate media life. While lower flows can be used and MAY provide adequate results, media life may be significantly reduced.
