MPSFs are constructed and operated in a similar manner to MSSF technology with all of the same advantages.

MPSF based treatment systems are simpler and less expensive than treatment systems using other filtration technologies.

 
Total height of filter similar to MSSF or shallower.
Loading up to 600 litres per square meter of surface area.

MPSF Based Treatment Systems may be used to remove small particles such as:

  • Particulate matter (sand, silt or clay sized particles with or without use of coagulants)

  • Iron (directly or using pre-oxidation)

  • Manganese (directly or using pre-oxidation)

  • Hydrogen sulphide (using pre-oxidation)

  • Arsenic using pre-oxidation and coagulants

  • Fluoride (using lime and coagulants)

  • Heavy metals (with use of appropriate coagulants)

  • TOC/DOC (using coagulants or pre-oxidation)

  • Algae (directly or with pre-disinfection and use
    of coagulants)

  • Parasites including Giardia Cysts and Cryptosporidium Oocysts

  • Helminthes and their eggs

  • Spores

MPSF Based Treatment Systems may be used to treat:

  • Surface water

  • Ground water

  • Ground water under direct influence of surface water

  • Brackish or saline water as part of pre-treatment for desalination process

  • Polishing filtration for municipal wastewater that has been treated to tertiary (perhaps secondary) standards

  • Storm water runoff

  • Industrial or municipal wastewater to condition satisfactory for reuse and recycle or disposal

  • Agricultural wastewater to condition satisfactory for reuse and recycle or disposal

  • Rainwater
