Vortisand filtration systems use exclusive VortiJetTM injectors to
generate cross-flow patterns that sweep the surface of the
media. This sweeping motion causes a portion of the water to
flow parallel to the top media layer, allowing for high filtration rates
while preventing fouling and channeling.
trapped in suspension and within the microsand media (depth filtration)
are easily removed using an automatic backwash cycle. The system's
backwash cycle requires less flow and a shorter duration than
traditional sand or multi-media filters. The result is a technology that
removes particles down to submicron levels at 4 to 5 times the
hydraulic flow rate of other media filters, while requiring up to 50%
less water for backwash.
