Batch of our sand based filter media is rigorously tested by our local JMG accredited laboratory for compliance to guidelines which include standards regarding: saturated hydraulic conductivity, phosphorus and nitrogen, organic matter, sieve analysis, EC and pH levels.
Uses of Filter Sand
Sand based filter media is a form of mechanical filter, which is inert and does not interfere with the chemical components of the water. It serves to physically or mechanically strain solid particles passing through it, which is crucial to efficiency in removing unsightly particles such as dust, sludge, soil and others. To prevent build-up, the filter media must be cleaned regularly. Replacement is only required when the media can no longer release all the dirt that it holds.
Common filter media applications include, but are not limited to:
- Water treatment plants
- Swimming pool filters
- Industrial water treatment
- Tertiary sewage filtration
- Wastewater treatment plants
We source our filter sand from multiple locations including the longest river in Peninsular Malaysia, the Pahang River at 459 km, to ensure we consistently provide filter sand of the highest quality for the most efficient filtering of water.
Filter gravel is used as a support media to filter sand and coal in water filters. For maximum efficiency, filter gravel must possess the necessary traits of hardness and be rounded rather than pointed.
All our filter sand is triple washed and pre-sized through our state of the art manufacturing plant. They are then sent over a series of vibrating screens with effective sizes and uniform coefficients guaranteed in order to dry and size them to your specifications. As all our products are washed, dried, categorized and packaged in the same site in Kuantan, we can offer reasonable prices with swift delivery. Packaging is available in 20kg or bulk bags up to 2,200 kg per bag.
