replacement of sand in swimming pool and spa filters
Replacement of sand and anthracite and multi media gravity and
pressure vessel filters for drinking water.
Filtration of surface and groundwater.
filter for RO and nano-membrane filters.
an ion exchange resin it can be used for the removal of heavy
metal cations, nitrogen, chloramines, certain organic
hydrocarbons, and many other contaminants.
Better filtrate clarity:
BRZ™ has a nominal
rating of less than 5 microns. Sand and anthracite has a rating
of 15 microns, and multi media is 12 microns.
Increased flow rate:
Flow rates are
generally more than double through BRZ™.
Greater particulate loading:
holds more than twice the particulates as sand and anthracite.
Fewer backwash cycles with less water used:
BRZ™ cuts the
backwash cycles and amount of water used in less than one half.
Lower capital cost to expand plant capacity:
can be doubled by replacing sand and anthracite with BRZ™ to
eliminate the installation of more equipment and buildings.
HOW IT WORKS
BRZ™ is a 100%
natural zeolite of volcanic origin. The internal and external
surface area of zeolite is 10 times greater than quartz. One
gram of BRZ™ has a surface area of 25 square meters. BRZ™ 100%
more permeability than sand.
The water passes
through the BRZ™ and not just around the grains like it does
with sand. This gives the much lower nominal rating of less than
5 microns and the greater capacity and loading. BRZ™ has a bulk
density of only 55 pounds per cubic foot which is about half
that of sand.
