Depth Filtration

A filtration process in which water flows through progressively smaller pore spaces in a filter media bed. Depth filters are designed to entrap particles throughout the mass of filter media, as opposed to a surface filter where only the surface layer does the actual filtering. Depth filtration can be accomplished with a multilayered bed or multimedia filtration.String-wound fiber cartridge elements can also function as depth filters.
