Filter Media


Filter media is a material used in water filtration systems to remove impurities and contaminants from water. There are many different types of filter media that can be used for water purification, including sand, gravel, activated carbon, and ceramic.

Sand is a common type of filter media used in water filtration systems. It is effective at removing suspended particles from water, but it is not as effective at removing dissolved contaminants. Gravel is often used in combination with sand to provide additional filtration.

Activated carbon is a type of filter media that is highly effective at removing a wide range of contaminants, including organic compounds, chlorine, and heavy metals. It is often used in combination with other types of filter media for this reason.
​Rotek also has media like clino-x, Polyphosphate Crystal, Iron Removal Media...etcc.

Overall, filter media is an important component of water purification systems, as it helps to remove impurities and contaminants from the water to produce purified water for various applications.

Ion Exchange Resin


Ion exchange, resins are useful for the removal of water problems including hard water, scale buildup, nitrates, arsenic and more. The articles below explain proven treatment methods and how ion exchange can be an important, cost-effective solution.

Build profits with light commercial arsenic removal — A challenging contaminant to remove from water systems, arsenic can be effectively attacked with ion exchange.

Addressing hard water and scale with sustainable solutions— Scale buildup can have many negative effects on water pipes, and hard water can make washing clothes, dishes, fixtures, and people difficult. Softening water remedies these problems, and the ion exchange method is one of the most common water softeners. Salt is added to recharge the system to keep it operating properly.

Rotek offers a comprehensive line of ion exchange resins for applications as diverse as simple industrial softening, production of ultrapure water, sweetener purification and metal recovery (mining).
