Anthracite promotes higher service flow rates and longer filter runs with less head loss than single media filter beds. Backwash rates are reduced as well. Low uniformity coefficient anthracite filter media extends the life of your filter before the media must be changed out.
Low uniformity coefficient anthracite typically produces consistent improvements in turbidity removal, due in part to more efficient solids loading. Plus, low uniformity coefficient media produces smaller changes in effluent turbidity during periods of peak influent turbidity.
