Unlike traditional methods that use entrapment, OC-1 Filtration Media works through settlement and harnesses advances in pump technology and variable speed pumps/controllers. The new British manufactured filtration media has some exceptional benefits – by replacing commonly used media (such as sand and glass) with OC-1 it is possible to reduce the head loss in the filtration system; filter with a constant flow (regardless of debris entrapment) and, most remarkably, significantly reduce running energy costs whilst still filtering to the equivalent standard as it can be used with a smaller pump or a variable speed pump or controller.
Why YOU should switch to OC-1
Reduces energy consumption – OC-1 maintains constant flow rates, even when the media becomes dirty. Never experience heating/salt chlorinators/heat pumps going out on low flow again. The constant flow means pumps can be run at lower speeds, thus saving energy.
Huge capacity for debris collection – OC-1 offers over 20 times thecapacity of sand or glass.
Reduced requirement for backwashing and a more efficient backwash – Reduces water consumption, chemical usage and heating. There is no need to backwash on start up with new installations.
Lightweight – Can even be shipped inside a filter, easy to handle and super quick and easy to install.
Less Maintenance – reduces pressure in the system, extending the life of equipment.
Suitable for ALL installations – domestic or commercial, outdoor or indoor, new installations or existing filters.
Recyclable at end of product life.
Payback typically 6-12 months.
Don’t just take our word for it – OC-1 has been independently tested by Cranfield University and IFTS Institut de la FIltration et des Techniques Séparatives.
