Water Treatment Silica Sand is manufactured under high quality control monitoring program extracted from high purity quartz silica sand mines reaching to our factories located in Saudi Arabia for minerals treatment processes which includes washing, drying and grading to meet the strengths specifications standard of ANSI/AWWA B100-09 as per ASTM E11 Test sieve standards.
Silica Sand used in sand filters for Water Filtration with other water treatment filtration media products such as Gravel, Anthracite, Activated Carbon, Birm, Pumice and Garnet used in Sand Filters for sea water desalination plants , R. O. reverses osmosis treatment plant, portable water treatment, surface water treatment, sewage water treatment, swimming pool water treatment, industrial wastewater treatment and conventional water treatment filters.
Filtration and Water Production: Industrial sand is used in the filtration of drinking water, the processing of wastewater, and the production of water from wells. Uniform grain shapes and grain size distributions produce efficient filtration bed operation in removal of contaminants in both potable water and wastewater. Chemically inert, silica will not degrade or react when it comes in contact with acids, contaminants, volatile organics, or solvents. Silica gravel is used as packing material in deep-water wells to increase yield from the aquifer by expanding the permeable zone around the well screen and preventing the infiltration of fine particles from the formation.
