High Rate Multi-media Filtration

FilterClear (formerly Spruce Filter) is a high rate multi media filtration system which removes suspended solids from a wide range of waters at high filtration rates of 25 m/h and above. The patented arrangement of four stratified filtration media (formerly Spruce Media) enables a higher quality of filtered water than sand filtration. FilterClear technology competes cost-effectively with other multimedia filters, continuous filters, deep bed filters, disc filters and micro screens.

Throughput ranges from 1.5 l/s to 500 l/s per vessel
