Effective filtration is partly a function of filtering surface area within a given footprint. Toward that end, Aqua-Aerobic Systems has developed OptiFiber PES-14 microfiber pile cloth filtration media engineered to remove suspended solids, turbidity and fine particles. The company says the media provides up to 50 percent greater removal than standard cloth fiber filters or microscreens.

"We consider this media excellent for fine polishing applications," says Ed Lang, filtration product manager. "Its ability to maintain high filtrate quality even during backwashing provides assurance of meeting even the most stringent effluent requirements."

The all-polyester microfiber material has very fine fibers that make it possible to pack more filtration surface area into a given space. "Because it removes more solids, and in particular smaller solids, it's an excellent tool for enhanced phosphorus removal," Lang says. The company states that the media has proven capable of reducing total phosphorus to 0.1 mg/L or less.

The media can be used in treatment plants of any size and type, according to Lang. It is designed for use with the company's AquaDisk, Aqua MiniDisk and AquaDiamond filters, either in retrofits or for new plant construction. Lang notes that the company offers two cloth media styles in addition to the new offering: "We apply them to suit the application." 800/940-5008; www.aqua-aerobic.com.
