Pile Cloth Media Filtration Removes 97% Of Microplastics From Wastewater


Plastics are ubiquitous. Automobiles, shopping bags, beauty products, clothing, drinking straws, computers, packing material, tools and toys all contain plastic. When we discard, clean and manufacture these items, we generate microplastics.

Filtering microplastics from industrial wastewater prior to discharge is one way to effectively to reduce the volume of this waste material from entering our surface water. Industrial customers can rely on Aqua-Aerobic® pile cloth media filters to filter these harmful microplastics, while offering simple operation, small footprint and high forward flow to backwash ratio. The family of pile cloth media filters, available in several configurations including Aqua MiniDisk®, AquaDisk®, Aqua MegaDisk® and others, features OptiFiber® media capable of producing consistent effluent water quality.
