As the liquid travels through the media, contaminants are trapped between the individual beads of media. The media is specifically selected to provide reliable, consistent levels of particulate removal. As the void spaces are filled with dirt, the pressure differential across the media increases. Once the differential pressure reaches a preset level, a backwash is initiated. The valves reverse themselves, and flow enters below the media flow upward and out of the vessel, taking trapped contaminant with it and to the drain. The backwash duration depends on the type of filter in operation. When the backwash is complete, the valves move back to the forward flow (filtration) mode.
