Simul-Wash™ is a proven sustained, simultaneous air/water filter backwash system that extends the useful life of the filter media, minimizes backwash waste, prevents mud balls from forming, and frees nearly all captured filter debris – better than any other backwash method available.
The introduction of air into the backwash process with a collapse pulsing action results in cleaner filter beds. The superiority of the collapse pulse backwash process is well documented in AWWA sponsored and published research.
Simul-Wash™ works well in a variety of configurations, from horizontal and vertical pressure filters to low profile retrofit applications on gravity filters.
Simul-Wash™ uses up to 50% less water, conserving one of our most precious natural resources. Additionally, the unique water conservation feature allows for a significantly smaller backwash chamber, resulting in space and cost savings in plant design.
