comparative study of sand and FIBALON

SAND

  • Water: 12,000 x 300 times = 36,00,000 Ltr. of water saved
  • Time: 300 times x 30 mins = 150 hours
  • Money: 12m3 x 300 days x 30/m3 = Rs. 1,08,000

fibalon

  • Water: 12,000 x 3 times = 36,000 ltrs
  • Time: 3 times x 30 mins = 1.5 hours
  • Money: 12m3 x 3 days x 30/m3 = Rs. 1,080

SOLUTION

After substituting FIBALON®, the back washing process was initiated only after 4 to 5 months as compared to previously having to backwash daily. As a result the Serum Institute was able to save on their water consumption, time and money by incorporating FIBALON® as their filter media.
