Single 12” x 52” Back Washable Glass Media Filter 30L/PM – AFM Media

AFM® Activated Filter Media is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure. AFM® resists biofouling, bio coagulation and transient wormhole channelling of unfiltered water and never needs to be recharged or replaced.

AFM® is a highly engineered product manufactured from a specific glass type, processed to obtain the optimum particle size and shape. It is then exposed to a 3-step activation process to increase its surface area by up to 300 times for superior mechanical and electro-static filtration performance.

The activated surface of AFM® is self-sterilizing which prevents bacteria mud-balling, coagulation and channelling of unfiltered water through the filter bed. Activation increases the surface area by up to 300 times for catalysis and adsorption reactions. Similar to activated carbon, the surface nano-structure adsorbs pollutants from the water but unlike carbon, AFM® is recharged by just back-washing with water.

AFM® Performance:

  • Will not support bacterial growth
  • At up to 20m/h will consistently filter, without flocculation:

-- >95% of 4μ particles (Grade 1)

  • Will selectively filter positively charged ionic particles such as heavy metals*
  • Will not suffer from channelling or preferential pathways
  • Will consistently evacuate more than 95% of retained particles using 50% or less water than required for sand. (backwash duration 5 mins max at 45m/h).
  • Has a service lifespan of 10 - 15 years or more.
