A Thoroughly Unique Method of Water Filtration
Through our partnership with Dryden Aqua, SVS Aqua Technologies brings to India a material and method of water filtration that is unlike any other. Using a proprietary filtration medium, and chemical components that treat the water both before and after filtration, and coupled with our own ClO2 products, we can deliver what is arguably the very best methods for assuring water purity in every possible agricultural, aquacultural, industrial and recreational setting.
It All Begins with a Filter Medium
AFM® Activated Filter Media is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure.
AFM® is a highly engineered product manufactured from a specific glass type, processed to obtain the optimum particle size and shape. It is then exposed to a 3-step activation process to become self-sterilizing and to acquire superior adsorption properties.
Self sterilizing surface: AFM® is 100% bio-resistant, prevents channeling and the biological conversion from urea to ammonia in the filter bed responsible for the toxic chlorine smells (trichloramines).
Superior adsorption properties: The surface area of AFM® is strongly increased and becomes hydrophobic (water-repellent) to filter particles down to 1 micron and to remove about 50% more organic substances from the water than sand and other glass filter media, thus reducing the formation of harmful THM's including chloroform by up to 50%.
The surface of each filtration particle is jagged and irregular to increase the total available surface area. This is important due to the fact that the surface of our medium has a negative (-) ionic charge which powerfully attracts the (+) ionic charge of the target organic materials.
An Efficacy that is Easily Demonstrated
The photo to the left "clearly" illustrates how powerful that attraction is...
The first glass is full of murky water, full of organic soil-load.
The second glass shows our Activated Filter Medium (AFM) being introduced and stirred into the water.
The third picture demonstrates how the AFM particles pull the soil-load out of the water and down to the bottom of the glass as it settles.
