- AFM®ng: Filters 95% of all particles down to 1 micron.
- AFM® : Filters 95% of all particles down to 4 microns.
- Sand: Filters 95% of all particles down to 20 microns.
- Glassand: Filters 95% of all particles >25 microns.
AFM® ng undergoes a new activation process to increase its surface area and to make it hydrophobic (non polar). Dryden Aqua has developed AFM® ng to remove organics and microplastics from the water – certified 1 micron filtration without flocculation. Any non polar chemical will be more difficult to dissolve into water and it will tend to float like oil, or be adsorbed on to a non polar hydrophobic surface.
Organic matters are the precursor for the formation of Trihalomethanes (THMs), including chloroform. Thanks to its large hydrophobic area and highly mesopourous structure, AFM® ng can filter much finer particles and approximately 50% more organic substances than sand. High filtration performance means less disinfectants are used, resulting in healthier water and better air quality at lower costs.

- more than doubles the performance of an existing filtration system without the need for additional investments
- is not subject to biodynamic instability and will never allow untreated water to pass the filter
- substantially lowers chlorine oxidation demand by up to 50%
- lowers backwash water demand by an average of 50%
- is expected to last for the life of the filtration system
- provides quick return on investment
