FiltraFast Extreme-Rate Compressible Media Filter

FiltraFast™ is a high-rate downflow gravity or pressure filter that uses a unique compressible media. The filter only uses hydraulic loading to create the required media porosity without any mechanical compressing devices. A proprietary backwash sequence enables maximum recovery, extends media life, and limits energy consumption. This process 1) significantly reduces the footprint compared to sand filters, and 2) reduces maintenance and replacement costs required by disc filters, and other compressible media filters.
