TMC Fluidised Sand Bed Filters
TMC Fluidised Sand Bed Filters utilise the most efficient method of
aerobic biological filtration available. Process water enters the filter at
the base of the unit and is pumped up through a bed of sand, ‘fluidising’
the media which provides a very high water to media contact area.The
specially designed sand diffuser bowl, in conjunction with the carefully
graded filter media, means that TMC Fluidised Sand Bed Filters fluidise
uniformly and quickly at minimum water pressure to utilise the high
surface area of the filter sand for highly efficient biological filtration.
Filtered water leaves under gravity at the top of the unit at which point
the flow may be diverted to supply another non-pressurised filtration
unit, such as a protein skimmer or re-gas/bio-tower, or simply allowed
to return to the
reservoir. Non-
pressurised units must
discharge above water
level.
All units come complete with supply pipework
including an anti-siphon device, grade #2 oolitic
sand,ABS replaceable sand diffuser bowl and top
flow sight glass (non-pressurised units only). All
TMC Fluidised Sand Bed Filters feature our
unique, flexible double o-ring inlet boss system
for easy service and the simple removal and
replacement of pipework and components.

TMC Fluid Sand Filters incorporate a unique anti-siphon device which
guarantees that in the event of a power/flow interruption, no media will
back-siphon into the supply pipework.
If this were to occur, the Fluid Sand Filter would have to be completely
stripped down and re-commissioned, usually resulting in the sand’s biofilm
becoming unviable.

Un-pressurised units - process water leaves under gravity at top of unit and must be unrestricted
Pressurised unit – for applications where process water from filter remains pressurised for further treatment or pumping to a remote location
