Orthos offers retention trough installations for low-freeboard granular media filters. Our Ortho-Wash™ baffled troughs are also used when sustained air-water backwash is needed, allowing the efficient combined cleaning process to run as long as necessary.
Orthos ensures engineers make more money by designing our Centurion™ monolithic filter underdrains into their municipal clients’ treatment plant projects.
FIRST: Installation is far less prone to construction error, SECOND: Fewer concrete pours, THIRD: Far less to zero warranty issues
Orthos has demonstrated a long track record of success in BAFs and BACs and with our monolithic design, repeatedly responds to utilities demands of resiliency, reliability, and permanency.
Details given in the video describe a classic two-horse race in Shelbyville, Kentucky. ORTHOS monolithic filter underdrain was fielded directly again Xylem-Leopold plastic block for an upgrade to the City’s water treatment plant.
