WesTech GAC pressure filters

WesTech granular activated carbon (GAC) pressure filters effectively remove low-molecular-weight contaminants, especially dissolved organic compounds responsible for poor taste and odor. When used as pretreatment equipment, the filters prolong the life and efficiency of demineralizing ion exchange resins and reverse osmosis membranes.

The filters use a pressure vessel, typically with a conical underdrain for convenient GAC media replacement. They are sized according to the contact time required for contaminant removal and desired media replacement frequency. Filter piping and valving for multiple units can be arranged to easily change flow paths between parallel flow, series (lead/lag or daisy chain) flow, or single-unit flow patterns. Filters aretypically backwashed only once upon new media installation, and the media usage front is then monitored via sample taps. 801/265-1000; www.westech-inc.com.
