Media filters are used to remove particulate matter from water. There are several types of media filters, including gravity and pressure filters.  Multimedia filtration is a well-established technology and is a standard system used in water treatment..

Inlet water is introduced into the upper freeboard of the filter. Water flow is from top to bottom.  The bed is typically several feet deep and consists of layers of various grades and types of media.  Media are selected for the feed water characteristics and are specified in the Equipment List. The primary zone of filtration is the top third of the bed. The most important characteristic of the media filter is that filtration occurs within this primary zone. Filtration is not just a surface filtration, but also an in-bed filtration. This characteristic of filtration offers a number of advantages.
