AFM® Activated Filter Media 21kg Bag

Producing crystal clear water, AFM® Activated Filter is the best performing filter media on the market with a certified 1-micron filtration rate which will remove about 50% more organic substances from the water than sand and other glass filter media.

AFM® is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure. AFM® resists biofouling, bio coagulation and transient wormhole channelling of unfiltered water and never needs to be recharged or replaced

AFM® is a highly engineered product manufactured from a specific glass type, processed to obtain the optimum particle size and shape. It is then exposed to a 3-step activation process to increase its surface area by up to 300 times for superior mechanical and electro-static filtration performance.

The activated surface of AFM® is self-sterilising which prevents bacteria mud-balling, coagulation, and channelling of unfiltered water through the filter bed. Activation increases the surface area by up to 300 times for catalysis and adsorption reactions. Similar to activated carbon, the surface nanostructure adsorbs pollutants from the water but unlike carbon, AFM® is recharged by just back-washing with water.

Key Benefits:
• Crystal clear water.
• Lower chlorine consumption.
• No chlorine smell and up to 50% less THMs.
• The risk of infections by bacteria and parasites such as Legionella, Pseudomonas and Cryptosporidium is reduced to an absolute minimum.
• Same performance for many years. AFM® outlasts all other filter media.
