Filter-Ag Plus is a filter material made of clinoptilolite ore (a product of volcanogenic-sedimentary origin). Filter-Ag Plus granules have an angular shape and rough surface pierced with conical micropores less than 3 microns in size, so the filtering area of this material is 1000 times greater than that of quartz sand. Filter-Ag Plus effectively removes suspended particles of rust, silt and organic matter larger than 5 microns from water. Filter-Ag Plus-based filters have low pressure loss, high speed in operating mode and low speed in backwash mode, have a long filter cycle, are characterized by a high degree of extraction of contaminants.

Advantages of using Filter Ag Plus
– Effective removal of suspended particles of rust, silt and organic matter over 5 microns in size.
– Large filtering area (1000 times larger than that of quartz sand).
– Long filter cycle.
– Light weight of the material reduces water consumption during backwashing.
– Low pressure loss of Filter Ag Plus compared to other filter media.
Filter-Ag Plus can be used to replace multi-media filter media loading.
Filter-Ag Plus has a wide range of applications: from portable drinking water treatment systems to industrial wastewater treatment plants, from water treatment systems for cooling towers to swimming pools.
Filter-Ag Plus reduces equipment costs and footprint due to high flow rates in operation. The material has a long filter cycle time, which reduces operating costs and water consumption for backwashing. Requires thorough backwashing prior to operation.
