The use of our pumice filtration media in water filtration applications is increasing worldwide.

Pumice filtration media is increasingly being specified for contracts involving pre-treatment prior to SWRO and desalination, in both new and refurbished plants. This is due to its extremely high particulate removal, low density and its versatility; it can be used in mono and multi-media filters in both pressure and rapid gravity filter designs.
