Hydrosil works heavily with industrial water filtration. Industrial water filtration typically begins with removal of suspended solids with the use of a sand filter or bag filter. The next step toward clean water is removing harmful contaminants (volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, oil/grease, etc.). Hydrosil provides media to remove contaminants which affect product quality, state water discharge limits, and performance of industrial equipment.
Hydrosil has a wide range of filtration medias available to remove cationic and anionic species. Based on water analyses provided to Hydrosil—Hydrosil will deliver you the best filtration solution. To meet every pollutant problem Hydrosil manufactures customized blends.
Common Industries Hydrosil Provides Media to:
Water Filtration Media is Commonly Used in:
Free Standing Mode: Used on its own, Hydrosil’s media can be loaded in drums or large vessels for use as an efficient bed filtration medium. Other applications include tank cleaning, oil spill mitigation, stormwater run-off, pond clean-up, excavation and de-watering, manufacturing/chemical processes, and lining/capping projects.
Pre-Treatment Mode: Media is used upstream to enhance the performance and extend the useful life of other filtration processes and media such as reverse osmosis (RO), activated carbon, activated alumina, and resins. Hydrosil’s media is often used as a pre-treatment to prevent fouling. Fouling of RO systems is not uncommon due to the presence of silica, oil, and heavy metals.
Post-Treatment Mode: Media is utilized downstream of an oil-water separator or coalesce filter, has the ability to act as an effective cleaning and polishing agent.
