Pre- and Post-Water Filtration
Separmatic’s municipal water filters may utilize pre-filtration and/or post-filtration, depending upon the turbidity and particle load of the raw source. This may consist of sand, bag filters, cartridge filters, multi-media or any of these in combination along with our diatomaceous earth filters for water purification:
- Sand: Used in the removal of suspended solids and high turbidity.
- Bag or Cartridge: For high flow rates may be used in a housing featuring multiple bags or cartridges. This would be used to remove particles to 5 microns to assist the DE filter where heavy amounts of suspended solids and high turbidity are present.
- Multi-Media: These filters consist of multiple layers of different media sizes. This allows for high loading rates of suspended solids. Multi-media filters can remove sediment down to the 10 micron range.
- Activated carbon or Carbon Block: Typically used for post-filtration activated carbon or carbon block filters remove unpleasant taste and odors, dechlorination, or organic contaminant absorption.
DE Filters for Drinking Water Filtration
Separmatic diatomaceous earth municipal Drinking Water Treatment systems can be either pressure or vacuum. Pressure vessels can be either carbon steel with an epoxy coating or made of stainless steel. They are designed to work at pressures up to 150 psi. Vacuum vessels are made of stainless steel and, where space is tight, provide the most square footage of water treatment and filtration. ASME code vessels are available. Separmatic DE filters run with very little manual attention and can be set up to run virtually hands free.
