Filtration deposits, such as dried filtration sands, Hydro-Anthracite and mass, are used by every water treatment station. They constitute the filter filling and are used, among others, in removal of iron compounds and manganese. The FERROTEX filters line is part of the offer of ACES SA addressed to the customers looking for complex solutions in treatment of drinking water.

FERROTEX filters are the basic equipment of each water treatment station. They are used to remove iron compounds, manganese, ammonium compounds and turbidity. Anthracites and filtration sands are used as filter filling.
