Paques presents ASTRASAND®COMPAQT, the compact version of its Astrasand continuous sand filter


At IFAT 2018 in Munich, water technology supplier Paques from The Netherlands, launched a new version of the Astrasand sand filter: the ASTRASAND®COMPAQT. This filter, which is 30% lower than the original version with the same filtration process, is based on the reliable continuous sand filtration technology that has been proven in the last 35 years.

The reduction of height leads to a 20% saving on energy, it makes the filter easier implementable on existing sites and it is even possible to place it inside.
ASTRASAND®COMPAQT can be utilized for many types of wastewater, with unit capacity varying from only a few to several thousand m3/hour. The highly efficient and reliable system offers a short lead time and a better sand velocity distribution than conventional sand filters. With a non-metal tank and use of materials that are resistant to chemicals and corrosion it also offers lower operational and maintenance costs.
