Pumice Powder Industrial Raw materials

Water Treatment Pumice filter media are manufactured under a high quality control monitoring program that subtracts mineral processing from high purity pumice ore to our facility in Saudi Arabia including washing, drying and grading to meet ANSI/Strength Specification standards AWWA B100-09 meets ASTM E11 test sieve standard. Pumice is used in sand filters for Water Filtration with other water treatment filtration media products such as Gravel, Anthracite, Silica Sand, Birm, Activated Carbon, and Garnet. As a filter medium, pumice is used as a powerful filtration substitute for sand (and other filter media) for the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater. Pumice’s low specific gravity and high porosity make it ideal for these applications and processes. A growing body of research shows that pumice is an effective drinking water filter medium.

Pumice is a light-colored, extremely porous igneous rock that forms during explosive volcanic eruptions. It is used as aggregate in lightweight concrete, as landscaping aggregate, and as an abrasive in a variety of industrial and consumer products. Pumice has several advantages over other filtration media such as expanded clay, anthracite, sand, and sintered PFA. Comparison tests done between deep bed sand and pumice filters for treating water found pumice to be superior in turbidity removal performance and head loss. Pumice is a very lightweight, porous, and abrasive material and it has been used for centuries in the construction and beauty industry as well as in early medicine. It is also used as an abrasive. There is a high demand for pumice, particularly for water filtration, chemical spill containment, cement manufacturing, horticulture, and increasingly for the pet industry.
