Aquamat Sediment Filter (ASF) Manual
WATER QUALITY PROBLEM
In water supply systems are often observed turbid water caused by water pipe repair, disconnection or cleaning etc. Turbid water may contain sand, mud, iron, organics and various debris that clogs the system, aﬀects the plumbing equipment, measuring devices and creates additional pressure losses.
Aquamat ASF units are meant for reduction of mechanical impurities, it is based on ﬁltration media that ﬁlters mechanical admixtures from water. These ﬁlters can be used in household and industrial systems, which use heavily mechanically contaminated water. Such water would be uneconomic to clean with traditional cartridge type mechanical ﬁlters because of their capacity being too small and would have to be changed very often.
As a ﬁltration media Zeolite is ﬁlled in two layers. The equipment is simple and operates continuously due to the Clack automatic valve, the valve initiates automatic backwashing / ﬂushing periodically to ensure that the ﬁlter media stays in good condition. After rinsing, the ﬁlter media is recovered and is able to continue the water ﬁltration process. The frequency may vary depending on water consumption and pollution levels. The process does not require any reagents or frequent costly ﬁltration materials replacement
Electrical connection is needed. It is essential to ensure incoming and outgoing water connections, as well as wastewater discharge line.
Feed water enters the unit and passes through the Sediment (Clinoptilolite) ﬁlter media to reduce and eliminate suspended solids. High sediment removal capacity results in longer ﬁlter runs, with a substantial savings in backwash water and time out of service. Periodically, the media is backwashed to remove any accumulated particulate matter. This process is fully automatic.
Floor standing reinforced ﬁbreglass cylinder. Clinoptilolite deep bed ﬁltration results in superior water quality
Clinoptilolite is a natural zeolite and used as a direct substitute for outdated ﬁlter sand in sediment ﬁltration.
- Removes 40-50% more physical dirt than old, outdated sand systems.
- Removes cysts of cryptosporidium.
- Absorbs and reduces ammonia.
- Absorbs, holds and reduces harmful heavy metals such as lead.
- It can be regenerated and used over again.
