Red Flint anthracite filter media is specifically selected from deep mining sites that yield the highest percentage of carbon.

Anthracite filter media is specifically selected from deep mining sites that yield the highest percentage of carbon. The water filter media is hydraulically classified to reduce foreign mineral matter and to lower ash content. The water filtration media is then screened and washed to ensure suitability for water filtration purposes. Anthracite characteristically produces reliable improvements in turbidity removal, mostly due to better solids holding capacity. Additionally, low uniformity coefficient media improves flow rates.

Uniformity coefficients are tightly controlled to meet your specifications. Custom sizes are available; call 800.238.9139 for more information.
