What is Anthracite Filter Media?

Anthracite filter media is a kind of water treatment filtration material, it takes anthracite as raw material, which is the coal with the highest carbon content. Anthracite filter media has good adsorption capacity, can effectively remove impurities, pollutants, and odors in water, and can be used in combination with other filter media in multi-media filters.

Huamei Anthracite Filter Media

The black and lustrous mineral is the hardest of all carbon materials. Anthracite for water filtration is usually specially selected from deeper mines where the carbon content is usually higher due to the higher pressure. Ningxia has very rich coal resources, and our factory is located in Ningxia, just a short distance from the raw material source, so Huamei Carbon has a natural raw material advantage. What's important, the bulk density of Huamei anthracite filter media is lighter compared to other brands, and the use of anthracite filter media with a light bulk density allows for larger particles to be placed on the filter sand, enhancing the removal of turbidity.

The Advantages of Huamei Anthracite Filter Media

Why use anthracite as a water filtration media?

This is because of anthracite's broad tolerance to contaminants and its ease of forming filter-grade products. For drinking water, wastewater filtration and industrial water, anthracite has the ability to purify this type of water and can be used in combination with other sand filters or as a component of dual or multi-media filtration systems. It also prevents filter clogging and the formation of mad balls on the surface of the sand layer. Importantly, anthracite offers higher flow rates, less pressure drop and faster back washing than sand.

Low bulk density

Huamei factory produces anthracite filter media with high quality anthracite coal as raw material, so Huamei anthracite filter media has a lighter bulk density for the same volume.

Uniform particle size

Uniformly sized anthracite filter media has more uniform pores, which can effectively adsorb pollutants, make water flow more evenly, and improve its treatment capacity and filtration efficiency.

Long Lifespan

Anthracite filter media is hard, not easy to wear, and has resistance to a wide range of chemicals, preventing their decomposition and dissolution.

High pollutant removal rate

Anthracite filter media can be used in combination with other filter media in multi-media filters to effectively remove various pollutants in water.

Anthracite Filter Media Application

Anthracite filter media is widely used in the water treatment industry, such as drinking water, tap water, seawater, industrial wastewater, etc. It can be easily converted from single media to dual media filtration. The use of anthracite filter media also reduces the length of filter runs and saves installation space. Below is an example of anthracite filter media used for municipal drinking water treatment.
