Filtration Media FilterEase™
Oxidized Metal & Particulate Reduction Media
FilterEase™ (P/N HC10001-61) is a popular sediment filter media that water treatment professionals are using as a substitute for sand or other filter aggregates. The material is extremely hard and durable. It has a highly porous, ragged surface area that is excellent for use in the removal of oxidized materials such as iron. The filtration characteristics of FilterEase will typically allow for particle filtration of 5 to 10 micron.

FilterEase is a highly durable filtration media which makes it ideally suited for use in commercial and industrial applications requiring extreme velocities and rigorous backwash.
One of the best features of FilterEase is that it will perform its duties while requiring less water in the backwash than traditional sediment filter media or sand.

The media is extremely light in water so that the backwash rate is typically the same as the service flow rate. This makes FilterEase excellent for low pressure and low flow applications. It can actually save the customer money by allowing smaller pumps to be installed.

Since the media has a broad range of particle shapes and sizes, it will take the place of most multi-layered filter beds.
