Sediment filtration is a fundamental water treatment option available on the market. This type of filtration is accomplished by mechanically removing solid elements from a fluid stream, trapping particles in a solid media.
Sediment filters can be divided in 2 groups depending on the mean of retention used:
- Depth filtration, where particles are trapped in the filter's depth
- Surface filtration, where particles are stopped on the filter's surface
Pentair offers a vast choice of depth and surface filtration products to cover many different applications.
Sediment cartridges are available under the Pentek brand.
