Aquatech Filtration Glass is an environmentally friendly and cost effective filter media that provides a viable alternative to sand. Made from recycled glass, it doesn't involve intrusive mining and the use of scarce resources. Glass Filtration Media doesn’t degrade therefore has a longer life span and may not need changing even when the filters are due for refurbishment.
Aquatech Filtration Media is less susceptible to bio-fouling as, unlike silica sand glass particles have a smoother surface, so bacteria cannot get trapped in any cracks or flaws, which means less remedial action and again less chemical treatment to destroy pollutants.
A sophisticated production process turns old glassware into a safe and effective filter media. The glass is processed through a glass on glass crusher producing a sub-angular particle very similar to implosion, it is then tumbled twice to take off the edges rendering it sharp free.
