Unlike traditional filtration methods that use entrapment, OC-1 works through settlement which means that the debris settles within the cells of OC-1 throughout the entire bed rather than being trapped on the top of the media bed. This new British manufactured filtration media has some exceptional benefits – by replacing commonly used media (such as sand and glass) with OC-1 it is possible to reduce the head loss in the filtration system and filter with a constant flow regardless of debris retention.

 Features

  • Out performs traditional filter media
  • Increased debris retention
  • Decreased head loss
  • Potential energy savings
  • Lightweight
  • Suitable for all applications
  • Independently tested by IFTS

High quality filtration

OC-1 has been proven to efficiently reduce the turbidity of pool water and retain particulate without increasing the pressure within the filter or reducing the flow. The debris capacity of OC-1 is more than 20 times that of sand or glass. OC-1 removes 81% of 10 micron particles in a single pass and can even remove particles as small as 1 micron without flocculation or coagulation.

Lightweight

Unlike sand, gravel and glass, OC-1 is lightweight so easy to handle and transport. This is a huge advantage in terms of manual handling requirements, ease of installation and logistics. OC-1 is supplied in 50 litre bags that each weigh approximately 9kg and have the equivalent volume of three 25kg bags of sand.

Reduces pool running costs

OC-1 can reduce energy usage and water consumption. Its open cell formation makes it possible to achieve a greater flow of water through the filter. In many cases this means that pump speeds can be reduced by around 20%, without compromising the original flow, producing impressive energy savings. Alternatively, on new installations a smaller pump can be specified to produce the same flow – saving running costs and initial outlay. Due to its constant flow rate and huge debris capacity, OC-1 can reduce backwashing frequency and water consumption.

Tested to European Standards

The European Standard for Swimming Pool Filtration Medias EN16713-1 is the benchmark for any filtration media in Europe OC-1 has been independently tested to EN16713-1 by the IFTS (Institut de la Filtration et des Techniques Séparatives). It passed all tests with flying colours and indeed surpassed certain tests to levels not seen before by the IFTS.

Existing Installations

OC-1 filtration media is suitable for use on all pools & spas be they domestic, commercial or hydrotherapy. It is simple to convert an existing sand filter for use with OC-1 and take advantage of its benefits over traditional media such as sand or glass.

New Installations

For new installations the OC-1 Filter is the obvious choice. Supplied complete with the OC-1 media it is specially design to work in perfect harmony with OC-1 and compliment the amazing advantages OC-1 can provide. The OC-1 Filter range covers all applications from small domestic to the largest commercial installations.

Commercial Pools

OC-1 media really excels in the commercial sector. Potential savings in running costs come from the ability to reduce pump speeds & reduced backwashing. Add to that the advantage for new installations of the filter arriving with the media already installed and you can see that OC-1 is the obvious choice for the commercial application.

Retrofit - how to calculate the amount of OC-1 you will need

Take the Kg of sand or gravel in the filter and divide by 1.59. The result is the quantity of OC-1 required in litres.

eg. 150kg ÷ 1.59 = 94 litres or 2 bags (18kg).

As a guide 19” Filters require 63 Litres, 24” Filters require 94 Litres and 30” Filters require 157 Litres.

For side mount filters an additional diffuser is required, any side mount filter can be converted.
