Stringent testing during the evaluation process confirmed that PathShield antimicrobial filter media kills waterborne bacteria, like coliform, on contact, without the use or release of toxic chemicals or destructive disinfection byproducts. Bacteria cells rupture instantly upon contact with PathShield filter media, making it an environmentally friendly, sustainable option for reducing and controlling waterborne bacteria.
AS Filtration developed PathShield as a stable, non-toxic, non-leaching, non-corrosive product to kill and control waterborne coliform bacteria, virtually eliminating the harmful consequences of conventional oxidizing biocide chemical treatment methods.
The relatively large granule size of the silica filter media makes it an ideal water treatment solution for stormwater and other high flow rate applications. Biocidal action is continually and instantaneously achieved with a surface-area loading rate up to 20 gallons per minute per square foot.
PathShield and Pathex filter media use the same technology to kill waterborne bacteria on contact. Seeking – and earning – EPA registration for both brands offers concrete proof of the filter media’s efficacy of the technology in various applications.
