Real-world benefits of using Filternox filters over conventional sand filters:

 

Automatic Filternox Filters Pressurized Sand Filters
Space Occupation
sand filter comparison
For any given capacity, space volume required for healthy operation of filtration units are considerably smaller. Requires quite a large space to filter same amount of liquids.
Footprint
sand filter comparison
Filternox filters require up to six times less area. Sand filters occupy a large area which can be used for other tasks instead.
Total weight
sand filter comparison
Weights up to six times less. Storage and maintenance is easy. Bulk weights make initial construction cost, maintenance, operation and storage area availability huge problems to deal with.
Backflush water consumption
sand filter comparison
Water drainage is up to fifteen times less. Save money and also the environment. Some large amounts of water is wasted.
Energy requirement
sand filter comparison
About a hundred times less energy consumption for usual operation. Unacceptable wasted energy levels. Low efficiency, high operational cost.
Energy options
sand filter comparison
Thanks to their efficient designs, Filternox filters can be operated with solar energy. No such option with sensible gains and return on investment.
Filtration efficiency VS time
sand filter comparison
Requires much less frequent maintenance and more importantly, performance degradation between scheduled maintenance is negligible. Sand filters require frequent and costly care. Degradation between sand changes is more than noticeable and can result in complete system failure leaving you with damaged valuable equipment. In addition to high cost repairs, bacterial growth can raise catastrophic health and safety issues which may result in serious problems that can not be solved easily-or at all.
Initial cost
sand filter comparison
About one-third of a conventional sand filter for all the benefits. High cost, low Return on Investment.
Transportation cost
sand filter comparison
In relation to filter volume and weight, considerably cheaper to transport. Very expensive and time consuming to move around and then put back in operational state.
