Sand & Bead Media Filtration Systems

Sand filters are commonly used for effective mechanical filtration in lightly loaded display aquarium life support (LSS) systems and incoming water filtration systems. In cases of higher organic loading such as aquaculture, IAS offers Perma-Beads™ as a direct replacement for effective, long term non-clogging mechanical filtration. Media filters can also be supplied with specialty media such as activated carbon, zeolite or multimedia materials. IAS offers a complete line of media filtration systems as well as accessories for any aquatic application from small scale to large scale commercial. Automation may be added to stand-alone or multi-filter systems for ease of maintenance and operation.

Automatic Backwash Valves

 

Automatic Backwash Valves & Control Systems – Automatic Backwash Control Systems provide automation for the filter, rinse and backwash cycles. Available with pressure and/or time activation, the HydroMation valve eliminates the labor and concerns of timely cleaning cycles. The HydroMation valve can be easily installed on existing systems or included in new applications and is available for both top-mount and side-mount filters. Available in sizes of 1 1/2″, 2″ and 3″. The control board is built right into the valve housing for easy installation and has a manual external touch control pad for system testing or to initiate an extra backwash cycle if required. Operation is simple – no PLC programming experience is required to operate.

Contact IAS directly for application assistance and technical sales of automatic backwash valves.

Perma-Beads™ Filtration Media

Perma-Beads™ Filtration Media

 

Perma-Beads™ Filtration Media – A permanent, non-channeling, non-clogging replacement for sand in any existing rapid sand filter. Our Perma-Beads™ media provides large interstitial spaces for trapping debris thereby extending backwash intervals and minimizing water loss. The unique surface properties and high density combine to create a self-cleaning media bed that refluidizes completely upon backwash. Complete, state-of-the-art, low-maintenance bead filters provide superior suspended particulate removal without the channeling and clogging found in all common sand, DE and cartridge filters.
