For increased filtration capacity with the ability to meet stricter effluent limits in existing footprints, an ideal solution is to convert sand filtration systems to Forty-X Disc Filter from Evoqua. The Forty-X Disc Filter is a high-rate tertiary filter that requires a fraction of the footprint required by traditional sand filters. Designed with unique woven media filter panels, the Forty-X Disc Filter uses an inside-out flow pattern that reduces backwash cycles and energy demand leading to lower life cycle costs.

For applications requiring a higher-solids loading capacity and greater hydraulic throughput, the Forty-X Disc Filter Armor series is recommended. This innovative high-rate filtration device combines outside-in and inside-out filtration technologies within one filtration unit. Influent water flows through an integrated pre-screen (outside-in) to woven stainless steel disc filter panels (inside-out), providing an effective and robust solution for challenging water and wastewater filtration applications.

Forty-X Disc Filter advantages:

  • 40% more filtration capacity when compared to flat panel designs
  • Drop-in simplicity with little or no structural modifications
  • Can accommodate existing hydraulic profile
  • Increases capacity of an existing sand filter up to three times
  • Easy operation and maintenance
  • Suitable for water reuse
  • Title 22 approved
  • Increase treatment capacity of existing sand filters up to three times

The modular design of both the Forty-X Disc Filter and Forty-X Disc Filter Armor series provides a flexible and dependable filtration solution for tertiary filtration, municipal and industrial reuse/recovery, product recovery, process water filtration, and conventional filter retrofit applications.
