You should use a Diatomaceous Earth-Water Filter if:
• You presently operate an unfiltered water system
• You are having trouble meeting the new turbidity standards
• You are looking for a way to reduce your disinfectant demand
• You are concerned about chlorine-resistant pathogens
About Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous earth is a chalky, sedimentary rock comprised of the skeletal remains of microscopic water plants called diatoms. When the life cycle of these single-cell organisms is completed, the diatom organic matter decomposes and washes away, and the siliceous skeletons become an inorganic mineral and form a sedimentary deposit.
The diatomaceous earth Separmatic uses in our filtration systems is sourced from the Midwest USA, and receives extensive evaluation prior to mining and processing. The raw materials are analyzed for both chemical and physical properties and are controlled to exact specifications prior to use. The diatomaceous earth product is drilled, milled, classified, and calcined to purify it. The product is further classified to produce a tightly controlled porosity and permeability that assures the water treatment plant operator of consistent performance, time after time, gallon after gallon.
The level of protection afforded by Diatomaceous filtration exceeds the current and anticipated USEPA log separation requirements for protozoan pathogens and further reduces the need for disinfection.
