Perlite MediaSee All Defender® Regenerative Media Filters
The performance of your filtration equipment can be significantly affected by the media you choose and how often you clean your system, particularly when it comes to your Defender® filter.
Not all Perlite is the SAME. Did you know generic perlite can have HIGH FLOAT? Float is the non-functional waste that doesn’t coat the filter elements and will impact filter performance. High float causes bleed-through and short filter cycles. Generic perlite also tends to have HIGH PERMEABILITY and cannot filter down to 1 micron. Perlite Media is low float, maximizes filter performance, enhances element coating, maximizes oil removal, removes particles down to one micron in size, and achieves 25-30% longer filter cycles (according to current Defender system operators).
