Revolutionising Water Filtration with AFM Media: A Sustainable Solution

In the realm of water filtration, innovation is the key to addressing pressing environmental concerns. Introducing AFM media – a groundbreaking hydrophobic surface engineered to tackle the absorption of organics and microplastics with unparalleled efficiency. AFM®, an inert, amorphous aluminosilicate (glass), represents a leap forward in sustainable filtration technology, crafted through the upcycling of postconsumer green and brown glass bottles.

Innovative Manufacturing Process

At the heart of AFM lies a meticulously designed manufacturing process. State-of-the-art facilities, purpose-built to produce activated glass water filtration media, ensure the highest quality standards are met. This dedication to excellence is evident in every facet of AFM’s creation.

Versatile Applications for
AFM media

AFM is not just another filter media; it’s a versatile solution catering to a spectrum of water treatment needs. Whether it’s ground water, surface water, seawater, or waste water treatment, AFM media stands ready to deliver exceptional results. Its compatibility with both single and dual media filtration systems, regardless of whether they are open (RGF) or closed (pressure) filters, underscores its adaptability and reliability.

Features and Benefits

The distinguishing features of AFM media are as impressive as they are essential:

  • Self-Sterilising Surface: Resistant to bacterial growth, ensuring the delivery of safe, clean water.
  • Increased Surface Area: Enhances filtration properties, promoting superior performance.
  • Activated Surface: Facilitates the adsorption of fine particles and organic matter, guaranteeing optimal filtration efficiency.

The benefits of incorporating AFM into water treatment systems are manifold:

  • Safe Water: Prevents the transmission of pathogens, safeguarding public health.
  • Clear Water: Maintains a stable 1-micron filtration rate, ensuring water clarity.
  • Low Operating Costs: Saves resources such as backwash water and chemicals, contributing to cost efficiency.
  • Patented Activation Process: A three-step activation process endows AFM® with self-sterilising properties and superior filtration performance.
  • Sustainability at its core.

AFM isn’t just a filtration media; it’s a commitment to sustainability. By conserving resources such as water, chlorine, and energy through efficient backwash processes, AFM® offers a sustainable alternative to traditional filtration methods. Its longevity ensures a guaranteed return on investment, making it a sound choice for environmentally conscious organisations.
