Aqua-garco is a naturally occurring mineral with uniform physical, chemical, hardness and microstructure characteristics, which provide the essential properties for a wide variety of industrial uses. Aqua-garco is the compositional variety known as almandite. There are no free elements; all oxides are combined chemically as an iron-rich aluminosilicate, which has the formula: Fe3Al2(SiO4)3. Texturally and compositionally uniform in all sizes. All material mined from the same high-grade deposit.
Inert filter medium
- as polishing layer (because of it’s high density you can choose finer sizes compared to Aqua-sand) wherever extremely high water quality is required,
- for removal of suspended solids down to 1 µm,
- for pre-filtration to protect valuable units like Activated Carbon Filters, Ion-exchangers and Reverse Osmosis Membranes,
- in single-, dual- or triple-layer filter, combined with Aqua-sand or Aqua-cite or Aqua-sand plus Aqua-cite.
