FILTER MEDIA - GARNET

Normally used as the lower filtration layer in multimedia filters. The larger grains of media at the top will trap the larger solids. A uniformly decreasing grain size in direction of flow with small grains at the bottom will do the final polishing.

High specific gravity of garnet achieves higher loading and better particle retention.
