A commercial multimedia filtration unit is designed to separate sediment from water in order for usage such as drinking, swimming, or bathing. The Pure Aqua plant used the following typed of media for the filtration bed: Sand, Anthracite, and Gravel. The sand is the most common of the three Medias, it is a fine and used to remove suspended solids and turbidity. Anthracite, a type of coal, is used to compact the filtration bed and avoid turbulence when the backwash is initiated. Gravel provides bed support evenly and promotes good water flow due to its spherical shape. Multimedia filters are important to water purification because they catch suspended solids from all types of water and help water systems continue to cycle and not get backed up.

Large concentrations of suspended solids present results in a reduction in water quality. This outcome occurs in the form of turbidity which produces undesirable effects such as color alterations, smell, and taste issues in the water. Scaling can also result due to suspended solids and significantly hampers the performance of equipment and utilities utilized across industries. For these reasons, multimedia filtration systems are depended upon within applications that require high quality treated water. Media filtration has proven to be the most effective treatment method in regard to suspended solids reduction.
Multi-media filtration units were supplied to a major company in Kuwait to reduce suspended solids and turbidity in water. The multi-media units is composed of stainless steel tanks, diaphragm valves, electronic controller, face piping, high quality multi-media, differential pressure switch & gauge, in/out pressure gauges, and drain line flow controls (DLFC). The plant was selected from our MF-1100 Series. Since its startup, the filtration system has been running smoothly with minimal trouble-shooting.
- Extended filtration running durations
- Greater filtration rates
- The potential for water filtration to work with high turbidity and suspended matter
