Enviro Glasmedia
• Washed and dried graded sodium silicate glass
• Specially graded and available in 3 different sizes depending on
the application’s requirements.
• Grade 3 ideal for use as “Pea gravel” layer in pressurised sand
filters to facilitate uniform backwashing and filtration.
• Generally for use as a mechanical filtration media only, limited
biological action due to smooth surface structure.
• Inert properties means it will not channel – efficient long term
filtration with minimal maintenance requirement.
• Media properties means easier back-flushing and therefore less
water loss.
• Environmentally friendly – manufactured from recycled glass.
Bio-Glass
• Made from natural silicate.
• Pore diameter ranges from 60 to 300 micron.
• No toxins - harmless to aquatic species.
• Provides a very large surface area compared to other ordinary
bio-rings.
• Suitable for both aerobic nitrifying bacteria and anaerobic
denitrifying bacteria.
• Suitable for freshwater and saltwater applications.
We strongly recommend that bio-glass is used together
with mechanical filtration.
