Clack Filter-Ag Plus® is a clinoptilolite natural media with a large surface area and microporous structure, which can be used as a highly efficient method to remove sediment from your water. This is the media we use in our lightweight 2510SXT Iron Removal System.
The advantages of Filter Ag Plus is deep bed filtration results in superior water quality and reduces the load on downstream equipment. There's high sediment removal capacity results in longer filter runs, with a substantial savings in backwash water and time that the system is out of service. These high service flow rates result in lower equipment costs and a savings in space.
Filter-Ag Plus is an all-natural, environmentally safe product.
