Sand Media Filters
Removal of Solids Down to 20 Microns

Yardney Industrial Sand Media Filters are designed for the most challenging dirty water conditions with a high performance solution for water filtration down to 20 microns. These durable carbon steel filters utilize a 24" sand media bed for removal of organic and inorganic suspended solids for filtering large volumes of water with very little pressure drop and a long-term value. All Yardney industrial media filters utilize our simple backwash system for ease of operation and consistent water quality. The Yardney automatically controlled filter systems operate for extended periods of time prior to a short backwash cycle.

Yardney industrial filtration systems are shipped as a complete finished assembled and packaged unit. Each system is skid mounted with tanks, valves, manifolds, controller, tubing, electrical solenoids and removable underdrain assembled and ready for water source and power hookup.

Performance levels can be modified to remove suspended solids of a given size range consistent with desired application objectives.

APPLICATIONS

  • Removal of organic and/or inorganic suspended solids down to 20 microns
  • Storm water runoff, industrial process water, incoming plant water, waste water clean-up, industrial water for plant reuse
  • Pre-filtration in applications such as granular activated carbon, reverse osmosis, cartridge or bag filtration and deionized water
