  • Pentek DGD-5005 and ECP5-BB Sediment Filter Comparison Aquaman describes and compares the Pentek DGD-5005 and the ECP5-BB sediment filters. Also known as the 155357-43, the DGD-5005 is a dual gradient density depth filter manufactured from spun polypropylene. Depth filters capture sediment throughout the depth of the media, increasing holding capacity. Polypropylene is also bacteriostatic, making it ideal for untreated water. The ECP5-BB, also known as the 255490-43, is a 5 micron pleated cellulose water filter designed for use on treated water. Cellulose will promote the growth of microorganisms, so it cannot be used on untreated water. The ECP5-BB's pleated construction has a very large surface area, which provides for outstanding flow with little pressure loss. Both the DGD-5005 and the ECP5-BB are ideal as sediment water filters and are commonly used as pre-filters for water softeners. Aquaman is a Water Quality Association Certified Water Specialist.

  • RUSCO Spin Down and Sediment Trapper Water Filter Systems Aquaman features the RUSCO spin down and sediment trapper water filters. The RUSCO water filters are designed for sediment removal of large particle size sediment 100 microns and larger. Sand is typically 100-150 microns. With their unique cyclone "spin down" action, the RUSCO water filters self clean the filter element. Designed to be infinitely reusable, each RUSCO sediment filter has a flush valve that allows the user to purge out the collected sediment rather than having to replace the filter element. Filter elements are available in a variety of micron ratings and in both polyester or stainless steel varieties. These extremely durable water filters are perfect for pre-irrigation system or pre-softener filtration. Also available in chemical resistant and high temperature versions, RUSCO offers a product for nearly every sediment water filter application.

  • What is it ? Sediment in a city water storage tank. Sediment can be a habitat for bacteria viruses and protozoa. Keeping your water storage tanks clean may be one of the most overlooked maintenance procedures in the water industry. Out of sight and out of mind, sediment in the bottom of your water storage tanks is never seen and rarely thought of. The sediment that builds up in almost all potable water tanks can be a habitat for bacteria and other contaminates like cryptosporidium. Contaminates can get a foothold in the sediment out of reach of the chlorine entering the tank. In 2005 the a National Assessment of Tap Water Quality was published by the Environmental Working Group found that water suppliers across the US detected 260 contaminants in water served to the public. Keeping your tanks clean is the best way to ensure the health of your water system. If you know someone who works for a water department or is on a city council, please pass this video along Visit

  • Sedimentation Removal of natural buffers between land and sea, such as mangroves, allows the products of terrestrial erosion to wash straight into marine habitats. The coral animal is able to tolerate acute episodes of sedimentation by secreting mucus as a defense mechanism, helping to keep their surfaces clean. Nonetheless, destructive activity on land allows the continual input of sedimentation. This form of pollution, in particular the fine silt fraction of the sediment, directly smothers coral reefs blocking out the sunlight required for photosynthesis (Loya 1976). The short-term effect can interfere with corals by lowering growth rates, metabolism and fecundity (Rogers 1990). Prolonged smothering and burial eventually causes the coral to die. In addition, the silt covers the hard substrate that was available for settlement of juvenile corals making recruitment of the propagules impossible and reducing their reproductive success (Gilmour 1999).

  • Pentek DGD-2501 Sediment Filter Aquaman describes the Pentek DGD-2501 Sediment Filter. The DGD2501 is a spun polypropylene depth filter with an outer layer of 25 microns and an inner layer of 1 micron. This gradient density allows the Pentek DGD-2501 to hold significantly more sediment than a straight 1 micron sediment water filter. Perfect for untreated water because of it's bacteriostatic nature, polypropylene is extremely durable and can be used in a variety of applications including chemical filtration, ie ethylene glycol coolant solutions. The DGD-2501 is an industry standard size cartridge in the 10" length by 4.5" diameter size category. It fits many standard size water filter housings and is commonly used as a whole house water filter.

  • Sediment Source or Provenance In this video, I discuss some of the basic ideas about using sediment grain composition to identify the source of the sediment. This is called provenance ***ysis. If physical weathering dominates, the resulting sediment has the same composition as the original rock types, so one can distinguish volcanic from metamorphic sediment sources for example. Chemical weathering alters the composition of the grains, so it can be more difficult to identify the sediment source. However, some grains are resistant to chemical weathering and can still be used.
  • Radiolarian Micropalaeontology: Extracting Radiolaria from Sediment Professor Simon Haslett discusses extracting radiolarian microfossils from rocks and sediments. Radiolaria are marine single-celled organisms that possess a silica shell and are preserved in the fossil record. They can be collected from sediment accumulating on the sea-floor and retrieved through coring and extracted through sieving and chemical treatments. Radiolaria can be used in stratigraphy to date layers of rock and sediment through geological time, and also to reconstruct past environments and establish palaeoclimate history. Simon Haslett is Professor of Physical Geography and Director of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Wales, Newport.

  • braided stream sediment flume experiment This video is a fast motion record of a sediment flume experiment illustrating braided channel processes similar to what may be found operating on an aluvial fan surface. The dimensions of the sediment flume are 6 meters long by 3 meters wide. Throughout the experiment, water and sediment were fed continuosly through the flume, while the floor of the flume was made to subside continuously effecting a continuous drop in base level similar to what might occur in a basin that is subsiding tectonically. The total amount of time elapsed for the experiment is 45 minutes. Channel processes on display include channel avulsion (a change in flow direction brought on by a buildup or deposition of sediment), channel expansion (an increase of channel width brought on by a decrease in sediment supply or increase in water flow [aka a flood]), sweeping avulsion (a change in flow direction that occurs in a radial pattern), and bar growth (arcuate deposits of sediment that divide [mid-channel bars] or enclose [lateral bars] channel flow). Number of occurences for each type of event: avulsions, 5 channel expansions, 4 sweeping avulsions, 1 instances of bar growth, 2 Video and experiment by Chris Paola of the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota.

  • Rusco Filters, Sediment Filters for Whole House, Business, and Industrial Water Filtration Having problems with sand or sediment in your water? Rusco Filters are the ideal solution for removing sand and sediment from water for your home, irrigation systems, business, and industrial applications. Rusco started in 1985 with the introduction of the Rusco Spindown Sediment and Sediment Trapper water filters .Consumers and businesses raved over the Rusco filters, sometimes referred to as Vu-Flow sediment filters, because it is an alternative to the standard throw-away type filters. The benefit of the Spindown Rusco filter is its ability to be cleaned and reused. The tornado (spin-down action) effect created by the patented process is unique design of the Rusco sediment trapper element which allows debris to settle in the bottom of the clear cover, trapping sediment away from the screen. Rusco filters, sometimes referred to as Vu Flow filters or Campbell filters, are manufactured in the USA from NSF approved materials.
