Sil Filter Sand

Sil Industrial Minerals Filter Sands – are hard, sub-angular grains of crystalline silica sand. They are both durable and dense, making them resistant to degradation during handling, backwashing and extended use. All Sil Industrial Minerals Filter Sand grades are mined, washed, sized and dried under our ISO 9001:2008 Quality Assurance Program. Both the feed stock and final products are processed through our modern Bruderheim Plant using the latest industrial sand processing technology. The result is chemical purity, minimal clay and organic contamination with consistent effective sizes and uniformity coefficients.
