Data Sheet


Ceralite is a uniquely engineered medium-to-coarse crushed angular grain ceramic media, offering superior performance and significantly lower operational costs than traditional filtration media.

Ceralite is ideal for most filtration applications, including municipal drinking water systems.

  • Effective size ranges from 1mm to 5mm (18-4 mesh).
  • Uniformity Coefficient < 1.5 (typically < 1.3).
  • Surface pore sizes in the 1-70 micron range.
  • NSF/ANSI-61 Certified.

Main advantages:

  • More total usable surface area than any other filtration media, including Granular Activated Charcoal (GAC).
  • Lower total lifetime costs compared to any other filtration media.
  • Less backwash volume required (reduced waste) and faster overall cleanup time with less energy consumption.
  • Inert and non-reactive to highly acidic, caustic, oxidizing, or high temperature environments (up to 1000F / 538C).
  • Up to 15% lower hydrated weight compared to anthracite media.

Suitable for:

  • Treating highly coagulated or turbid water.
  • Surface and/or groundwater filtration systems.
  • Use in industrial, commercial, municipal applications.
  • Removing inorganic contaminants, heavy metals, and organic materials.
  • Mono-media gravity filtration applications, or used in conjunction with a traditional and filter.
  • Propagating and/or protecting biofilms.


  • Ceralite is typically packaged in 27 ft3 (0.76 M3) bulk bags.
  • Various effective sizes and uniformity coefficients are available on request.
  • Can be coated with all types of oxides for filtering metals and other particulates.
