Ceralite-A has more usable surface area for biomass than any other granular product. It has more surface area in the > 1.0 micron range than granular activated carbon.
- Ceralite-A’s extremely rough inert surface allows excellent attachment and robust filtration process that recover quickly post backwash by protecting some biology from removal.
- Ceralite-A’s lower density reduces backwash rates as compared to anthracite.
- Ceralite-A is typically less expensive than low UC anthracite.
- The improved surface porosity allows for higher filter loading rates as compared to anthracite.
