Our Anthracite filter material is produced by crushing and sieving natural anthracite coal. This results in abrasion-resistant material grains that are characterised by their sharp-edged surface structure and chipped grain form.
This makes this filter material an excellent choice for a wide range of water treatment processes including; pre-treatment/filtration, precipitation/iron and manganese removal, softening/decarbonisation, and neutralisation.
This product is proposed as an alternative to the commonly installed anthracite filtration media.
Advantages of Anthracite include:
- Less than half the density of normal anthracite which translates to significantly reduced backwash rates
- Lower backwash rates which requires smaller pumps and less backwash water
- High capacity for ion removal
- High purity
- Mined from very deep mines which translates to a very hard product
- Low ash contact
- Drinking water approved
