AFM Swimming Pool Filter media is manufactured from virgin grade glass and glass manufactured by Dryden Aqua. AFM (active glass filter media ) is a highly processed product certified under Reg 31 of the UK drinking water inspectorate. With offer 80,000 installation around Europe it is probably the safest and most efficient swimming pool filtration media on the market today.
AFM Activated Filter Media is a direct replacement for sand, doubling the performance of sand filters without the need of additional investments in infrastructure. AFM resists biofouling, biocoagulation and transient wormhole channeling of unfiltered water and never needs to be recharged or replaced.
AFM is a highly engineered product manufactured from a specific glass type, processed to obtain the optimum particle size and shape. It is then exposed to a 3-step activation process to increase its surface area by up to 300 times for superior mechanical and electro-static filtration performance.
The activated surface of AFM is self-sterilizing which prevents bacteria mud-balling, coagulation and channeling of unfiltered water through the filter bed. Activation increases the surface area by up to 300 times for catalysis and adsorption reactions. Similar to activated carbon, the surface nano-structure adsorbs pollutants from the water but unlike carbon, AFM is recharged by just back-washing with water.
