A filter primarily designed for the removal of suspended solid particles, as opposed to filters with additional capabilities.
an electrical filter based on a mechanical element such as a ceramic resonator or crystal , as opposed to a tuned circuit using capacitors and inductors
A filter that removes unwanted particles from the aquarium water by using a mechanical device such as sieve, filament, fibre or another floss type material.
Mechanical filters remove suspended material from water including sand, silt, clay or organic matter. These filters do not remove dissolved or very fine particles and are often used in combination with other treatment equipment.
A device consisting of a flat or pleated mat of fibers that remove particles from the air passing through them by impaction, interception and diffusion
A device that removes particulates, sediments or colloidal material from water by physical size as the water passes through a medium made of a screen, fibrous, granular or sintered material that is wound, pressed or bonded together.
A pressure or gravity filter designed to physically separate and remove suspended solids from a liquid by mechanical (physical) means rather than by the chemical means.
