Filter Sand

Absorb Filter Sands have a slow breakdown rate ensuring a longer filtration life and feature excellent backwashing characteristics, particularly when used in dual media filtration with Silicon Sponge or filter coal.


Silicone Sponge

Silicon Sponge is an effective media for filtration.  It provides benefits as an upper layer over sand in conventional plants and in PCDM installations.


Porous Ceramic Dual Media (PCDM)

A Silicon Industries media developed as a replacement for conventional sand filters providing better performance characteristics and the ability to fit inside existing water treatment plants to increase flow rates and lengthen run times.


Filter Gravel

Filter gravel is used as a support media to filter sand and coal in water filters. For maximum efficiency, filter gravel must possess the necessary attributes of hardness and be rounded rather than angular.



Absorb Pro-OX is used alone or in combination in dual media filtration systems. It ensures effective reduction of hydrogen sulfide and iron reduction over a wide pH range. Additionally, its tolerance to higher differential pressure can provide longer run times between backwashes and a greater margin of safety.


Activated Carbon
