Media Filtration

Ovivo multi-media filters remove more that 95% of 25-5 micron oil droplets and solids, and are fully automatic. All filters run in parallel, with one filter at a time being removed from use for backwash. Air scour blowers are also provided as part of the cleaning system. Typically, sand and anthracite media are used to remove the impurities in the water.
Ovivo® Scourguard® Filter Troughs
The Ovivo® Scourguard® Filter Troughs allow granular media filters to be cleaned by simultaneous application of air scour and backwash water, with only minimal media loss in the backwash waste. Simultaneous application of air scour and backwash water is an aggressive media cleaning technique, allowing tenacious, deeply embedded contaminants to be removed quickly and efficiently.
