Advanced Granular Media
Our engineered Advanced Granular Media (AGM) is a specially formulated organoclay and has extremely high adsorption properties that remove emulsified oil, grease and low soluble organic compounds from waste water streams. The AGM is very efficient due to the large surface active areas and can adsorb up to 60% of its own weight in organic contaminants, in comparison to only 2-5% for granular activated carbon. Designed to be quick acting, the AGM is both hydrophobic and oleophilic making it extremely effective. This remarkable adsorption can produce continuous and reliable effluent below 5ppm. With no cleaning cycles, no back wash discharges and no extra downtime for
replacements or the use of chemicals, running costs for our system are kept to a minimum.
