Osorno can accommodate all of your water filtration needs, which depend largely on the filter media. Pressure filters are more popular than non-pressurized / slow sand filters due to their much smaller footprint.
Filters require regular backwashing. However, the optimal flow rate for production is different than the optimal flow rate for backwashing. This normally requires installing a VFD-driven pump, which Osorno can easily accommodate due to our expertise in system design and integration.
Please contact Osorno if you need advice on the type of filter and media for your situation.
Osorno’s Intelligent electronic filter head is ideal for co-ordinating the operation and backwashing of a water filtration system. This technology is also advantageous when the rigid timing of mechanical or clock-driven filter heads prevents the adaptation of timing and frequency for meeting water quality requirements.
Osorno supplies complete filter systems upon request. Our filter systems typically consist of an FRP filter tank, filter media, and usually an Intelligent filter head (described above).
Osorno recommends using a regular quartz sand for water filtration. In most cases, ordinary filter media (gravel, sand, garnet) are sufficient without the need of more expensive filter media. Our company supplies all sizes of gravel and sand for filtration needs and will provide the required media calculations.
