Watts Micro Z media is designed to reduce sediment in automatic backwashing filtration systems for better performance and easier maintenance.
Watts filtration systems for sediment utilize high-performance Micro Z filter media to provide increased loading capability and enhanced service flow rates. Micro Z’s zeolite structure offers increased porosity to outperform conventional sand, anthracite and multimedia filters. This structure allows Micro Z to achieve 3- to 5-micron nominal particle size reduction and service flow rates of up to 20 gpm/sq ft.
Because the need to backwash is dramatically reduced, the Micro Z automatic backwashing solution reduces water consumption. Micro Z is a single-media replacement for multiple types of media—including anthracite, sand and garnet—which saves on shipping costs and eliminates questions about which media goes in the tank first.
