Sand filters for Aquaculture filtration applications have long been used to improve water quality, primarily as mechanical filter but also as biological filter and chemical filtration contact tanks (such as carbon)
They are economical to purchase, easy to operate, and can be used in a wide variety of applications.
They have however, in the past, been limited to lightly loaded applications due to the media becoming quickly fouled due to biofilm and high levels of waste in aquaculture system not commonly encountered in pools.
Pure Aquatics has a wide range of media types to apply in different applications to help to ease the loading on sand filters and increase the effectiveness of filtration in aquaculture applications.
From our experience in the aquaculture field and in conjunction with our suppliers, we have also developed a range of different hydraulic loading rates for various applications and media to ensure the most efficient and trouble free operation of your sand filter.
