High Efficiency – Submicron Filtration
The system's high efficiency lies in the unique use of microsand and cross-flow filtration. Vortisand® systems can capture particles under 1 micron in size, 10 to 50 times smaller than particles retained by other media filters.
The cross-flow technology has allowed us to optimize the media bed depth and improve filtration capacity. By doing so, we were able to design a horizontal vessel that provides the ultimate in filter technology.
With a single 36-inch vessel the horizontal design is capable of treating a flow of up to 1,200 gpm, offering unparalleled performance and value. The speed is up to 5 times faster than traditional filters at 25 gpm/ft2 (60 m/h), while delivering higher water quality than traditional media filters.

Lower Cost Of Operation
An important consideration for any filtration system is the overall operating cost. The Vortisand filtration systems help reduce operating costs in several ways:
Vortisand systems provide a fully automated experience, along with maintenance reminders and a user friendly interface to make operating and maintaining the system an easy task.
effective use of the media bed ultimately results in requiring less
media, allowing our customers to achieve high levels of efficiency with a
smaller footprint (up to 80% smaller and lighter than traditional
filters). The system can be customized to offer a vertically stacked
design capable of doubling the filtration capacity within the same
This unique lightweight and compact design provides both shipping and on-site infrastructure savings.
