With its increased focus on environmentally friendly solutions, Waterco has released the new Micron S602 ECO granular filter – a key addition to the EnviroPro suite of products. And like its ‘stable mates’, the Micron ECO has been created with energy efficiency and water conservation firmly in mind.
“The Micron ECO features an internal hydraulically-efficient system, which is designed to facilitate energy and water savings,” explains Bryan Goh, Waterco’s group marketing director.
A major feature of the Micron ECO is its unique ‘fish tail’ laterals, which ensure better water flow distribution through the filter’s media bed, enhancing its filtration and backwashing efficiency.
“We have used our experience in and knowledge of the commercial swimming pool market to design these new laterals and then applied the technology to the domestic pool market,” says Goh.
“The effective coverage of the lateral system virtually eliminates any dead areas of flow and provides an even up-flow through the filter bed during backwashing. The Micron ECO’s backwashing time is reduced significantly, leading to savings of backwash water of up to 30 per cent.”
The Micron ECO is designed to work well with low-powered and energy efficient pumps and can be backwashed at lower flow rates than standard filters. In addition, Waterco has incorporated a 50mm multiport valve instead of the standard 40mm, which allows better water flow with fewer restrictions.
“Reducing flow restrictions of multispeed and variable speed energy efficient pumps significantly improves their performance, without increasing their energy requirements,” Goh adds. “That’s because reducing the overall head loss or resistance to water flow of the pool’s plumbing system facilitates better flow from the pumps.
“The main aim of these pumps is to operate at the lowest motor speed settings to provide the minimum required flow for your swimming pool – without affecting the pool’s water quality – to maximise its energy savings.”
“The even flow produced by the lateral system facilitates the possibility of backwashing the filter with half the backwash flow rate of a conventional sand filter, allowing the option of a lower powered pump for both the filtration flow and backwash flow,” says Goh.
“A slow flow rate also has the added benefit of enhancing your pool filter’s filtration efficiency and improving the clarity of your swimming pool water.”
As with Waterco’s suite of Micron fibreglass filters, the Micron ECO is the result of the latest in fibreglass winding technology that is being extensively used by Waterco. The Micron ECO is manufactured with an inner shell of fibreglass reinforced polyester resin, which is strengthened with multiple layers of continuous strands of fibreglass filaments.
“Our digitally controlled filament winding machine faultlessly winds continuous strands of high quality fibreglass filament under controlled tension filament, which creates a seamless, one-piece vessel with refined consistency and superior quality,” says Goh.
