Clean water is essential for living, playing, and manufacturing. Water filtration processes remove particles and impurities from water using different methods and technologies. As a leading water filter media manufacturer and supplier, R.W. Sidley leverages its 80-year history of mining natural mineral resources to provide superior filtration products for commercial, industrial, municipal, and residential water filtration systems.  


We produce some of the industry’s highest quality silica quartz sands that are washed, dried, and screened in our state-of-the-art, processing plant in Thompson, Ohio. Our silica sand, torpedo sand, and bluestone sand filter media are of the highest purity, free from harmful materials such as organic and inorganic chemicals that can pose hazardous health effects.  


All of our filter media meet ANSI/AWWA B100-16 standards for granular filter media and NSF/ANSI 61 requirements for potable drinking water. In addition, we use the latest testing methods to regularly evaluate our filter media, ensuring it meets stringent quality control and consistency standards.  

Filtration solutions for multiple markets  

Drinking water filtration system manufacturers, industrial manufacturers, wastewater treatment plants, and homeowners rely on R.W. Sidley’s proven filter media solutions, knowing our products are backed by specialists committed to the betterment of water quality.  


Our filter media are used nationally and globally across multiple markets and applications, including: 

  • Potable drinking water treatment plants 

  • Wastewater treatment plants 

  • Commercial package plants 

  • Residential septic systems

What's in your well?  

Many households in the United States get their drinking water from in-ground private wells where layers of rock and soil naturally filter out most but not all potential contaminants. R.W. Sidley manufactures well pack gravels that can be used alone or with screens to effectively settle out fine-grained particles, allowing wells to produce cleaner water.  

Made from silica quartz sand, our well pack gravels feature a sub-angular shape and are processed in uniform grain sizes for improved hydraulic conductivity. They are available in a range of effective sizes and packaging options to suit your requirements.
