    2020-8-29 · Filtration media of granular filters are made up of particles finer than 2 millimeters. However filter media may consist of different grades of filter medium ranging from gravel to sand. Finer particles in a granular filter are more effective at filtration of wastewater and give better results. This means adsorption rate during the treatment of
