Accumulated deposits on filter media contributes to declining run times, mixing of media, high head pressures, uneven backwashes, mud balls, media growth, media loss, cementing, channeling and other problems – all of which affect the performance, effectiveness and capacity of a filter.
STANDARD FILTER MEDIA ANALYSIS
If you are experiencing these problems, let Blue Earth Products perform a comprehensive chemical, physical and microscopic analysis of your filter media before you replace it. Once we determine the type of deposit and extent of surface deposition, we will determine the right filter media cleaning product for your treatment. The information provided by our analysis includes:
- Before and after visual and physical inspection
- Before and after microscopic pictographs
- Dry weight loss
- Calcium and magnesium removal
- Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) metals analysis
