Developed 20 years ago in cooperation with technical institutes and water treatment experts, Filtralite® filter media has offered innovative solutions to water facilities worldwide.
Vestfjorden (NO) Wastewater Treatment Plant (Veas)
At the entrance of the Oslo fjord, VEAS cleans wastewater from 600.000 Oslovians.
Fredrikstad (NO) Drinking Water Treatment Plant
Fredrikstad Waterworks in southeastern Norway has an annual water production of 15 millions m3 and supplies the municipalities of Fredrikstad and Hvaler.

Filtralite® helps to keep the Mediterranean clean
Filtralite® is used in biological aerated filters (8 filters for denitrification and 12 filters for removal of organic
compounds and nitrogen) in Ta’barkat's wastewater treatment plant in Malta.<br>
The plant is designed to clean 51,000 m3 of sewage every day, which equals 80 % of all the wastewater produced in Malta.<br>

Filtralite® pressure filters at Beckton (UK) for pretreatment prior to desalination
In the new Thames Gateway Desalination Treatment Plant in Beckton, Filtralite® Pure HC 0.8-1.6 mm is used as filter media in 17 pressure filters as 2nd step of pretreatment before desalination.</br>
These filters each have a filtration area of 50 m2 and operate at a peak filtration rate of 12 m/h.</br>

Filtralite®Pure increased production at Palmachim desalination plant
Filtralite Pure NC 1.5-2.5 has been installed in 2009 in the dual media pre-treatment filters.</br>
Filtration velocity has increased from 7 m/h to 12 m/h and runtime between backwashes from 30 hours to 200 hours.</br>
Moreover biofouling of the RO membranes was reduced and silt density index lowered to around 2.0, sometimes as low as 1.5.</br>
