Filter-AG Plus is a unique natural ore called clinoptilolite that has many outstanding advantages over
common granular filter sands and multimedia used for suspended solids reduction. Viewed under a
electron microscope, the granules reveal a angular shape, rough surface and microporous void spaces
as small as 3 microns. This creates a surface are over 100 times greater then silica sand. The angularity
of the granules and the tapered internal pore spaces allow for reduction of dirt, silt and organic matter
suspended in water by bridging, straining and adhesion. The rough surface and internal porosity provide
a high surface area for efficient reduction of suspended matter. Utilizing deep bed filtration can typically
reduce suspended solids down to 5 microns or less rang. Filter-Ag Plus structure typically creates less
pressure loss through the filter and allow deeper sediment penetration into the bed for higher sediment
loading and long filter runs. The deep bed filtration capacity of Filter-Ag Plus prevents a rapid buildup of
head loss and binding problems that are associated with typical sand filters. The longer filter run times
reduce backwash frequency, which provides conservation of water.
