DANSAND® Filter sand helps safeguard the quality of our water reserves. This uncompromising product is a popular choice as a filter medium for well drilling and the construction of water filters.

Production of filter sand takes place in a highly controlled process. We wash the silica sand to remove all clay and dust, sort it and dry it using natural gas to ensure that it is entirely free from bacteria. Finally we sift the sand to achieve a uniform and precisely defined filter sand quality.


DANSAND® Filter sand is sold to well drillers all over Denmark and Germany. Used in combination with Bentonite the products gives maximum water flow in the well.


Dansand® filter sand can be made in special grades as per agreement. Our standard grades can be seen below.
In addition to the grades mentioned we also offer substrates in three grades:

8-16 mm
16-32 mm
32-64 mm

The substrate is constructed using rounded lake stones that are washed and sorted. These can also be desinfected if so desired.
