For filtration applications that demand high flow rates and increased effluent quality, Macrolite™ Engineered Ceramic Media delivers more performance on a smaller equipment footprint. Available in common filtration sizes, Macrolite™ media spheres optimize filtration performance with their remarkably greater surface area. Macrolite™ is tough and durable. It’s a chemically inert medium that provides excellent resistance to acids, caustics, oxidants, and ferric salts.
With exceptionally high surface area that captures particles down to three microns (compared to 10 microns for a conventional aggregate bed), Macrolite™ protects your membranes, extends their life and reduces cleaning frequency.
Boosts Flow Rate
Compared to aggregates, Macrolite™ filtration spheres are engineered with extraordinarily high surface area that typically allow you to boost flow rates to 10 gpm/ft2 creating surprising improvements in filtration performance and operating efficiency. No other granular media produces lower silt density index.
Reduces System Footprint & Operational Costs
Operating at significantly higher flux compared to traditional media, Macrolite™ allows you to minimize bed size, reducing your equipment footprint and lowering your capital costs. Macrolite™ also reduces backwashing and requires less chemistry, reducing your operating expenses.
Reduces Cyst Contaminants
Macrolite™ also forms a critical barrier to cyst contaminants like Giardia and Cryptosporidium. It can remove significantly more cyst-based contaminants than conventional aggregate media.
