General Information on silica sand and silica gravel


  • Raw material

Natural silica sand, silica gravel.

  • Manufacturing process

Silica sand and silica gravel are produced by quarrying, dredging Or crushing, cleaning, drying, and sieving.

Function: - Silica sand and silica gravel are used as filtering or supporting Materials.

Specific amount: - The amount of silica sand and silica gravel used depends on Application. Filtration rate and filter media depths vary with the suspended matter content of the water to be filtered.

Means of application: - Silica sand and silica gravel are used in open or closed,Single or multimedia, filters.

Silica sand is also used in "Slow sand filtration" systems.

Secondary effects: - The products have no secondary effects.

Hydraulic characteristics

  • Interstitial volume: - The interstitial volume is approximately 0.4 (V/V). If used for calculations the interstitial volume should Be measured.

  • Head loss in filtration :- Head loss depends on size, shape and roughness of Particles, filtration rate, filter bed depth, and water Temperature.

  • Expansion in up-flow washing :- The expansion during washing depends on Flow rate, effective size, density, shape and Roughness of particles, and water temperature.

Rules for safe handling and use.

Silica sand and silica gravel are not hazardous products:

  • It is recommended to avoid dust formation.

  • When handling dry product the use of a dust mask is Recommended, especially when using air conveying.

Emergency procedures

  • First aid

  • In case of contact with skin, it is recommended to washWith water.

  • In case of contact with eyes, it is recommended to flush With plenty of water.

  • In case of inhalation, it is recommended to move to fresh air.

  • Spillage
