AFM the Circular Economy Filter

Sand filters work well, but there are performance and stability issues attributed to bacterial fouling of the sand which leads to bio-dynamic instability, and transient channelling of unfiltered water through the filter bed and into the product water. Typically, a sand filter will channel for 0.01% to 5% of the time, even when the sand is aggressively back-washed, and sterilised using chlorine, a bacterial problem and channelling will still develop.   A channelling filter will allow unfiltered water to enter the product water and a channelling rate of 0.01% is sufficient to permit Vibrio Cholera bacteria to enter the water distribution network or parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia as well as heavy metals including lead, arsenic, chromium.
