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
Rotek offers a comprehensive range of ion exchange resins for various applications, such as industrial softening, producing ultrapure water, sweetener purification, and metal recovery in mining.
Ion exchange resins have proven to be effective in addressing various water-related issues such as hard water, scale buildup, nitrates, arsenic, and more. In the articles below, you can find detailed explanations of the treatment methods and how ion exchange can offer an affordable solution.
Boosting Profits with Light Commercial Arsenic Removal: Arsenic is a challenging contaminant to remove from water systems, but ion exchange can effectively combat it.
Sustainable Solutions for Addressing Hard Water and Scale: Scale buildup can cause damage to water pipes, while hard water can make washing clothes, dishes, fixtures, and even people, a challenge. Water softening can help alleviate these problems, and one of the most common methods is ion exchange. Adding salt to recharge the system ensures its proper operation.
