Water saving through efficient filtering


The European Water Charter, proclaimed by the European Governing board in 1968, established a series of key issues geared to recognize water´s fundamental value for life on our planet. According to the written text, water is not inexhaustable and it is necessary to preserve, control and increase all water resources, maintain water quality in accordance to its use, waste water should not be returned to its natural source and it must be managed in an effective way by everyone.  These are just a few of the 12 issues stated and Nature works pursues to ensure we use this valuable resource in the most effective manner.

Grupo Camacho I+D 5

To achieve this goal we have worked and will carry on doing so with Grupo Camacho and its advanced R & D + I team to develop Nature Works Hi-Tech Filter Media, respectful towards the environment in general and water in particular. As an example, the use of calibrated granulometric curves maximizes the impurity retention capacity in filters, making the periods between washing longer and reducing the amount of water wasted during this process. According to studies, this allows to reduce the washes  to  an average of 1 wash for every 8 necessary if silica sand is used in the filter. Compaction is avoided and with it the lower performance that it creates.

The advantages offered by MC2 Anti-compaction Technology, such as lower water, chemical products and energy consumptions makes this technology the most environmentally friendly product in this sector.

Nature Works and AmbientCare in close collaboration

Nature Works and AmbientCare in close collaboration in pilot scheme filter systems.

AmbientCare is an organization dedicated to innovation for the development of intelligent solutions, aimed at meeting specific needs the market has not yet found a solution for. Its activity focuses mainly on «Environmental Hygiene» , «Ground care» and «Water Treatments».

It is precisely in the latter field AmbientCare has been doing pilot experiments with Nature Works solution for its clients in the industrial field. The demonstration plant they have built at their facilities in Museros  in Valencia has allowed to give clients service adapted to their specific needs, and test the performance of different filter mediums, Nature Works being an outstanding one. With this plant AmbientCare may evaluate the different kinds of filter media and therefore give a comprehensive service to their clients.

AmbientCare´s pilot plant is available to any business concerned about any water issues ( product or fresh water, recycling, washing, re-using, waste, intake, etc) if they wish to carry out their own evaluations.

Nature Works and AmbientCare are continually in close collaboration to establish the new MC2 Hi-Tech Glass filter media in its different applications.

Silicosis: a risk hidden in water filters

Nature Works Glass filter media has brought about a revolution in the filter media market for various reasons of which durability, saving capacity -water, energy and chemical products among others- are notable examples. However, it is important to note that the two fundamental advantages are related directly to our health: both the security and water quality it provides.

Captura de pantalla 2016-07-01 a la(s) 10.35.04Traditional filtration medias use, specially in swimming pools, silica sand to filter water. This method may be considered hazardous when it is handled as it can cause silicosis, a lung disease resulting from breathing in silica dust, main component of the sand. Although is is necessary to be exposed to the substance for a prolonged period of time to be considered a risk, it is convenient to wear dust masks when changing the silica charge, something that Nature Works recommends to all the professionals of this sector whenever they come into contact with this substance. Cancer is another of the adverse effects known related to the continuous handling of silica sand, as well as many other incapacitating illnesses. United States law, for example, states that all those exposed to silica sand should take preventive measures such as working in ventilated areas, wearing protective gear, warning workers they are near a hazardous area and cleaning with special vacuum cleaners or with a damp method among other precautions to be taken.

LAb1At Nature works we have been working for years to offer a completely harmless and safe solution for all those who make an occasional use as well as for those who use it continually. Thanks to the resources used by the R & D department at Grupo Camacho, we have created the MC2 technology, a filter media based on glass that avoids the occurence of lung diseases such as silicosis and other related illnesses.

The groundbreaking  MC2 Anti-Compaction Technology also offers a multifaceted filtrating particle free of sharp edges. This feature, crucial when handling the glass to avoid accidents, is only one of the multiple advantages Nature Works has to offer compared to inferior quality glass on the market offered by competing brands.

When it comes to choosing a filter media it is important to assess and analyze all the advantages and inconveniences that the different products on the market have to offer, but always putting our health and that of our employees above any other factor.
