Sand Filtration


Novotec offers sand filtration units as polishing techniques for waste water effluents or surface water applications. These filters use the oldest natural treatment technique available. Sending water through a sand packages efficiently eliminates suspended solids.

Sand filters require regular cleaning, achieved by backwashing the sand package. When continuous treatment of the water flow is required, a duplex filter or counter flow washed filtration unit is proposed.
