Mechanical Filtration

Mechanical Filtration removes particulate mater from water

Filtration refers to the removal of solids from water.  Solids in water are normally classified and measured as either suspended (Total Suspended Solids - TSS), or as dissolved (Total Dissolved Solids - TDS).  Generally, the definition of a dissolved solid is a particle that is less than 2 micron.

Although some filtration technologies will remove dissolved solids from water, like reverse osmosis, Water Maze does no supply these types of filtration systems at this time.  Rather, Water Maze offers products with filtration that range from 5 to 20 micron.

Factors that should be considered when selecting a filtration system are: 1) the total spectrum (range) of particle sizes; 2) the total amount of particles contained in the water (e.g., percentage of total solids); 3) the process flow rate requirements; 4) the amount of maintenance required by the filtration system.

When selecting a mechanical filtration system, it is important to confirm the following: What are the water quality requirements that pertain to the intended use of the water?  Does the selected filter or system remove enough of the articles to achieve the water quality requirements?
