For individual contaminant filtration, we offer a range of media filters for a variety of agricultural and industrial applications. HyperLogic media filters are equipped with the latest media technologies, automated control valves and come pre-programmed to backwash, requiring minimal maintenance.

Carbon filters are essential for chlorine/chloramines treatment. These disinfectants are typically added by water treatment plants to ensure bacteria free water. Chlorine/chloramines are very harmful to RO membranes and will degrade their lifespan. Even very small amounts can ruin membranes quickly, making the carbon filter a critical component of proper pre-filtration. These chemicals must be removed completely before coming in contact with the RO membrane.

Carbon filters use Granular Activated Carbon as the media. Each cubic foot of media can treat approximately 750,000 gallons of water that contains 1 PPM chlorine. Water containing chlorine needs a minimum of 5 minutes of contact time with the bed of media to effectively remove 99%+ of the chlorine. Typically, chloramines require three times as much contact time and media volume than chlorine for guaranteed removal.

The control valve on top of the media tank backwashes the media bed on a pre-programmed schedule, ensuring no dirt remains trapped in the media. This process also “fluffs” the media bed into a consistent surface area for continued removal of chlorine/chloramines. Periodic monitoring of the carbon bed to ensure all chlorine is being removed will determine when the carbon needs to be exchanged. This is typically done every 3+ years.

  • Chlorine/chloramine removal to prolong membrane life for HyperLogic system
  • Produces clear clean water with low turbidity
  • Removal of organic chemicals, tastes, and odors
  • Automatic backwashing reduces maintenance and prolongs the life of the carbon media

The Multimedia Sediment stage of filtration enables the system to purify a water supply with a high level of suspended solids. This stage of solid removal is necessary as a precursor to other pre-filtration stages depending on the quality of the water source.


Sediment filters are layered with different sized media—typically graded in size from large to small media starting at the top of the tank. The solid removal process takes place throughout the entire media bed. These filters are backwashed at a frequency depending on your incoming water source. For automatic backwashing, the water flow is reversed in a chamber, and then trapped sediment is freed to flow to a drain. This system is ideal for filtering out particles in the size range of 5-15 microns or larger.

The backwashing process does not affect the media due to the advanced layering in the filter by size. The control valve on top of the media tank backwashes the media bed on a programmed schedule, ensuring no sediment remains trapped in the media, while preserving the media layering as a consistent surface area for the continued removal of solids.

  • Important for solid removal as the first stage of filtration in the pre-filtration process
  • Prolongs the life of the membrane by minimizing the size of suspended solids which lower product to waste water ratio
  • Filters out suspended solids in the range of 5 – 15 microns from water source
  • Automatic backwashing system prolongs use with minimum maintenance
  • Increased life of filtration media through backwashing process

Water softeners are an extremely important pre-filtration stage to ensure maximum efficiency of the HyperLogic system. These units are most often included to treat hardness, once it is identified in the water source. High hardness levels will scale membranes, damage equipment and impede ultra-efficient product to waste water ratios.


Hard water is caused by excess minerals present in a water source containing Ca (Calcium), Mg (Magnesium), and Fe (Iron). These minerals are undesirable in a water source because they cause high TDS, scaling build-up, water spots and limit RO membrane efficiency. The softening system consists of a mineral tank and a brine tank. Water flows through the mineral tank which contains resin, the dissolved solids in the water attach to the resin resulting in an outflow of soft water. Brine tanks are used on these systems to regenerate the resin from salt.

  • Increases efficiency of the Hyper-Logic system by pre-treating the water
  • Significantly increases RO membrane life
  • Ensures ultra-efficient product to waste water ratios
  • Softeners exchange sodium for minerals causing hardness, which is easily filtered out RO systems
  • Automatic regeneration with brine tanks
  • High quality manufacturing process made in the USA
  • Prevents water spots, scaling and staining from water source

Greensand filters are an important pre-filtration stage for the HyperLogic series when high concentrations of Iron, Manganese, and Hydrogen Sulfide are present in a water source.


Greensand filters remove these contaminants through the process of oxidation and filtration. The Greensand filter should be regenerated with a weak potassium permanganate or chlorine solution to oxidize the contaminants and maintain filtration efficiency. Typically, chlorine is injected into the source water ahead of a contact tank which allows time for mixing and oxidation, and then flows through the Greensand filter to remove the oxidized contaminants. Finally, a booster pump is typically added after the contact tank to boost pressure for the next stages of pre-filtration such as carbon.

  • Standard method to reduce concentrations of Iron, Manganese, and Hydrogen Sulfide from a water source.
  • Ideal pre-filtration prior to HyperLogic to preserve the life of the membranes and product water to waste water ratios
  • Unaffected by chlorine

Calcite media is made from a naturally occurring calcium carbonate. Calcite media corrects low pH to reach a non-corrosive equilibrium. Upon contact with calcite, acidic waters slowly dissolve the calcium carbonate to raise the pH which reduces potential leaching of copper, lead and other metals found in typical plumbing systems. Depending on pH, water chemistry and service flow, the Calcite bed will have to be periodically replenished as the Calcite is depleted. Calcite is also used to re-mineralize reverse osmosis treated water to make it taste better by adding the perfect amount of minerals back into the water and balancing the pH.

De-ionization filters are used to create lab-grade, ultra-high purity, low ppm water. DI filters can be used post-RO to lower the TDS as close to 0 PPM as possible, removing all potentially harmful contaminants. DI is utilized to produce multi meg-ohm quality water for applications such as extraction, aquariums, dialysis, manufacturing, analytical, and laboratory use.

HyperLogic chemical injectors can be used to control pre or post-RO water chemistry. They are important for the RO pre-filtration process, such as injecting chlorine for sterilization or iron removal and antiscalant for membrane longevity. Additionally, Chemical injectors can also be used to control post-RO water chemistry such as raising the pH of RO water, which typically has a low pH value. Brewers or beverage makers use chemical injectors to inject targeted minerals in order to craft ideal water profiles for their unique application.
