CMX provides the best of all worlds: high volume throughputs, the finest in micron particulate filtration, and ultra-low backwash requirements. The cost savings are huge! Smaller and fewer tanks are needed per system. Smaller pump requirements mean less wasted backwash water and lower operating costs, while producing superior clarity. And because CMX is ceramic, it withstands heat, chemicals, abrasion, and pressure shock — meaning bed replacement is rare.
Designed for flow rates of 6 to 12 gpm per sq.ft. with a short 24 inch bed depth, CMX is capable of filtering particles as small as 1 micron with very little pressure loss.
CMX also forms a critical barrier to cyst contaminants like Giardia and Cryptosporidium. It can remove significantly more cyst-based contaminants than other conventional aggregate media.
Available in two different mesh sizes and molecular weights, CMX can serve as its own underbedding or pre-filtration.
CMX is considered inert and non-reactive and is compatible with acid, caustic, and all types of oxidants. CMX can be used in harsh industrial filtration applications, chemical filtration, and in high temperature processes up to 1000°F (538°C).
CMX media is extremely clean with virtually no dust.
