Water Filtration Media

Hydrosil works heavily with industrial water filtration. Industrial water filtration typically begins with removal of suspended solids with the use of a sand filter or bag filter. The next step toward clean water is removing harmful contaminants (volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, oil/grease, etc.). Hydrosil provides media to remove contaminants which affect product quality, state water discharge limits, and performance of industrial equipment.

Hydrosil has a wide range of filtration medias available to remove cationic and anionic species. Based on water analyses provided to Hydrosil—Hydrosil will deliver you the best filtration solution. To meet every pollutant problem Hydrosil manufactures customized blends.

Options for Water Treatment Design:

Free Standing: Used on its own, Hydrosil’s media can be loaded in drums or large vessels for use as an efficient bed filtration medium. Other applications include tank cleaning, oil spill mitigation, stormwater run-off, pond clean-up, excavation and de-watering, manufacturing/chemical processes, and lining/capping projects.

Pre-Treatment: Media is used upstream to enhance the performance and extend the useful life of other filtration processes and media such as reverse osmosis (RO), activated carbon, activated alumina, and resins. Hydrosil’s media is often used as a pre-treatment to prevent fouling. Fouling of RO systems is not uncommon due to the presence of silica, oil, and heavy metals.

Post-Treatment: Media is utilized downstream of an oil-water separator or coalesce filter, has the ability to act as an effective cleaning and polishing agent.


Hydrosil is a global manufacturer and supplier of organoclay also known as organophilic clays. Organophilic clays which reject adsorption of water, but will successfully remove cations, anions, and oily liquids. Organophilic materials are important in the use of drilling, industrial, and watstewater treatment. The Organoclay Series is a modified clay that has a large surface area and has natural hydrophobic characteristics.

Granular Activated Carbon:

Hydrosil is a global manufacturer and supplier of granular activated carbon (GAC). Activated carbon is derived from a variety of raw materials such as coconut, wood, coal (bituminous, anthracite, sub-bituminous, and lignite), peat, and bamboo. Each raw material has unique properties which effect the resulting pore structure, carbon content, and ash content, which are important characteristics when removing a contaminant of concern.
