Electromedia® III is a unique filtration system integrating a special vessel design and a proprietary media. Electro-media® III is formulated for the filtration of raw waters having high suspended solids (in the order of 200 ppm) and containing detergents.

Electromedia® III is used in conjunction with an alum and ferric chloride pretreatment to produce filtrates having a turbidity of approximately 10 NTU. Electromedia® III is used on such applications as primary sewage after gross solids have been removed, car wash rinse waters, and certain irrigation waters. Backwash-to-filtration ratios of l0% to l5% should be expected on raw waters containing the maximum limit of suspended solids.

The nature of such applications requires laboratory test runs on a 5-gallon sample of raw water to insure the satisfactory performance of the full-scale unit.

Operating Characteristics

  • Filter Rate: 5 gpm per sq. ft.
  • Backwash Rate: 20 gpm per sq. ft.
  • Required Backwash Time: 6 minutes maximum.
  • Clean Filter Differential Pressure: 2 to 3 psi.
  • Terminal Differential Pressure: 25 psi.
