The Fuzzy Filter compressible media filter for water and wastewater treatment systems from Schreiber is very high-rate, compact and modular, and is applicable to a wide variety of water and wastewater applications. Operating in an upflow design, it achieves a high rate of solids removal through the use of synthetic fiber spheres. It offers loading rates of 40-plus gpm per square foot. During the wash cycle, influent continues to enter the filter while an external blower supplies air in the bottom of the chamber to agitate the media. The media, which is retained between two perforated plates, is subjected to vigorous air scouring to free captured solids. Freed solids exit the filter by wash water passing up through the vessel. After the washing cycle, media is returned to its compressed state and filtration is resumed. 205/655-7466;
