advanced turbidity and sediment reduction media capable of filtration down to the 3 to 5 microns with higher flow rates, less pressure drop, and lower backwash rates than multi-media filters

NextSand™ is our top selling turbidity and sediment reduction media. NextSand™ is composed of a rare natural high purity alumino-silicate mineral that is highly processed and graded in the U.S.A. The hardness, stability and microporous character of NextSand™ makes it a perfect filtration media for virtually every application in the water and wastewater treatment industry.

NextSand™ replaces traditional multi-media sediment and turbidity filters - in fact, NextSand™ outperforms traditional multi-media filters in every category of performance:

  • higher filtration performance with 3 to 5 micron removal possible
  • high capacity filtration through entire bed depth provides more than twice the capacity of multi-media filters
  • 3 to 4 times higher service flow rates with less pressure drop
  • significantly lower backwash flow rate than multimedia filters
  • durable media with a typical life of more than 5 years
  • ANSI/NSF 61 validated

In our experience, NextSand™ also outperforms other modern turbidity and sediment reduction media including Filter Ag,, Filter Ag Plus, and Micro Z.
