Rapid vs slow filtration
Know More

There are two main types of sand filters that are used for water treatment: rapid sand filters (also known as Rapid Gravity Filters or RGFs) and slow sand filters Sand filters should not be confused with Roughing Filters, which tend to be horizontal-flow gravel filters used as a roughing treatment for turbid raw waters prior to sand filtration...

aquazur sand filters
Know More

Aquazur filters are backwashed using the simultaneous «air and water» method: this involves a high air flow rate return and reduced water flow rate followed by a rinse at an average flow rate that does not cause the filter bed to expand since the sole purpose of this phase is to convey the matter removed from the bed to the wash water troughs...
