Industrial water filters

AFM® Water Purifiers are long-term cost-effective for industry and factories

Industrial water filters, or AFM® filters, are designed specifically to replace sand. It is suitable for industries that use large water filtration systems, as its filtration efficiency is 40 times higher than sand, with the service life up to 15 years, plus helps saving energy and time for backwashing lesser than sand.

Why are Industrial Water Filters (AFM®) worth the investment?

Industrial water filters, filter more thoroughly

From the test results, AFM® is the most effective filter media. The data confirms that AFM® grade 1 can filter out 96.02% of all 5 micron sized-particles, when compared to sand filters, it can only filter 72.97%.

AFM® filters for industry

Treatment of waste water

Eliminate wastewater problems The main industrial wastewaters are heavy metals, organic matter, BOD/COD values, TDS values, color-odor, oils and fats, etc.

Improve water quality

Industrial water, Improve water quality, water filtration systems
In industries that require water in the production process such as food and beverage / chemical / papermaking industries, the water quality adjustment is therefore an important factor.

With NSF 50 (for swimming pools), NSF 61 (for potable water), HACCP, UK DWI certifications, plus lifetime and effectiveness, AFM® is highly cost-effective.

The AFM’s surface area is 300 times greater than sand

Industrial water filters

With the correct size and shape, the AFM® is ideal for water filtration applications. A typical water purifier has a filter surface of approximately 3,000 square meters per cubic meter, but AFM® has a surface area of more than 1,000,000 square meters per cubic meter.

Industrial water filter BACK WASH, fast, save water and energy

AFM® takes only 4 to 5 minutes to backwash and remove dirt. Helps to save water and time, so that the filter system can work continuously.

Applications of AFM® Industrial Water Purifier

The industrial application of AFM® glass filtration media for cooling tower side-stream filtration can reduce TSS by up to 95%. In addition of reducing TSS, organic pollutant & oil, VSS and particles larger than 1 micron can also be reduced by filtering at a speed of 15-20 m/h with AFM® glass filter media.

The use of AFM® glass filters in industrial plants for wastewater treatment. If the water has low mineral oil concentration (< 50 mg/l), AFM can clear up to 95% of OIW by aerating into water that needs to be treated and leaving it for at least 30 minutes. After that can add in APF® before the water is introduced into the filtration process with AFM® glass filter media.

To remove chromium or copper, up to 95% TSS can be achieved by adjusting the pH to 7.0-7.5 with MgO2 or 8.5 (caustic). Use calcium polysulphide first, then allow to settle for 30 minutes before filtration at a speed not higher than 5-10 meters per hour with AFM® glass filter media
