If the water has oil particles the Media Filter can be supplemented with one or two layers of Nutshell media. A Media Filter can be used in wide variety of applications and handle large capacities of water containing high dirt loads, upon a filtration efficiency of 98% down to the rate of 2 micron. Nutshell filters are used when there is only oil to remove.


It brings the water in the top of a container by "header" which distributes the water evenly. The filter "media" start with fine sand on the top and then gradually coarse sand in a number of layers followed by gravel in the bottom, is gradually larger sizes.
