(EGFM) is the environmentally friendly filter media and a viable alternative to silica sand; made from glass recycled in the UK, it doesn’t involve intrusive mining and the use of scarce resources. EGFM has the green credentials, and with its superior performance is also cost effective against sand.

EGFM the Benefits Over Silica Sand

EGFM Is More Efficient: Saving on backwashing decreases water, energy and chemical treatment costs. - It’s angular to sub-angular particle shape and bound silica content provides a 30% improvement in turbidity removal over silica sand. - It generally removes finer particles from water than the equivalent grade of silica sand. - It’s non porous composition means its less likely to ‘clump’ than silica sand. - With superior permeability, backwashing take less time, saving water/sewer charges, energy and chemical treatment costs.

EGFM Keeps Cleaner: It’s less susceptible to bio-fouling as, unlike silica sand EGFM’s particles have a smooth surface area, so bacteria can’t get trapped in any cracks or flaws, which translates to less remedial action and again less chemical treatment to kill pollutants

EGFM Requires Less Material: It’s less dense than sand, requiring 15% less media to fill the equivalent filter.

EGFM Longer Life: It therefore has a longer life span and may not need changing even when the filters are due for refurbishment.
