Ruby Sand Comparison

Ruby Sand’s high surface area and low bulk density porous ceramic structure results from the flash removal of water in the aluminosilicate structure. The 1,200° plus manufacturing process rapidly vaporizes the water in the aluminosilicate mineral and leaves behind a rough porous ceramic type structure.

Here is how Ruby Sand compares to other filer media used in sand filters:
