Activated Filter Media
AFM® is an inert, amorphous aluminosilicate (glass) manufactured by up-cycling post-consumer green and brown glass bottles.
AFM®Activated Filter Media is verified to at least double the performance of sand filters without the need for additional investments in infrastructure. AFM® is used for swimming pools, aquaria and aquaculture as well as water treatment applications - for treatment of various sources of water such as ground water, surface water, seawater and waste water.
Two different types of AFM® are produced in our factories: AFM®s (standard) and AFM®ng (next generation).
Both products are exposed to a unique 3-step activation process to become self-sterilising and to acquire superior filtration properties. During the activation, the structure and the chemistry of the glass is modified.
