Verti-Press Filter, The Next Generation of Automatic Pressure Filter Technology

Filtra-Systems has been a constant innovator in the filtration industry. Our filter presses are as technologically advanced as they come – and our flagship filter press is our Verti-Press automatic pressure filter. Gone are the times when companies need to rely on traditional plate and frame filters, and a large number of our clients have been able to harness the technological advancements of Verti-Press filter presses to operate their processes more safely and efficiently.

The Innovation of the Verti-Press Automatic Pressure Filter

Incorporating a design that makes use of a series of vertically stacked chambers, Filtra-Systems’ Verti-Press filter presses are a welcome innovation for any organization that needs to dewater a chemical or mineral product. Each one of the chambers of the Verti-Press can be isolated from the process of generating filter cakes from slurry in order to keep maintenance cycles efficient and flexible. Filtra-Systems also has a wide variety of pilot filters to offer as well, which can provide filter press bench scale test opportunities lacking in other systems.

The Result of Listening to our Clients

Filtra-Systems has three decades of experience when it comes to the design, installation, and maintenance of industrial water filters, and a large part of that is a result of truly listening to our clients’ needs. Filtra-Systems is dedicated to the design of new efficient and cost-effective methods to wash and dewater slurries, and that has led to the development of larger filter presses featuring enclosed chambers – to both boost performance and minimize costs. The biggest benefit lies in eliminating plant exposure to the slurry. This also provides higher levels of operational safety as well, proving that Filtra-Systems has your organization covered for your dewatering needs.

Waste Water Filter Solutions for Companies Large and Small

Filtra-Systems takes its role seriously – that’s why we are constantly designing and innovating cutting-edge filtration systems. We hold several patents, including ones for our STiR technology, a system that provides exceptional levels of filter media cleansing from the first backwash cycle to the very last. We also make use of ultra long lasting walnut shell filter media that is adept at separating oil and suspended solids from processed waste water. Not only is walnut shell filter media incredibly durable, it offers better filtration when compared to other substances used as filter media, such as sand.

Bag and Cartridge Filters

Disposable media filters are also available to polish waste water. Filtra-Systems knows that high performance waste water filtration systems need only the best bag and cartridge filters, and we carry a wide variety of filters. We provide ultimate flexibility in filter media. Bag filters are available in medias ranging from nylon, polyester, polypropylene, to activated carbon and oil absorption filter bags, while our cartridge filters are available in polyester, polypropylene, and nylon, all in a variety of different micron ratings. Meanwhile, our bag and cartridge filters can withstand operational temperatures anywhere from near freezing to 338 deg F.

With more than three decades worth of experience and expertise, we have a variety of proprietary filtration options, including back washable filters, such as walnut shell media systems that can recycle wastewater or filter it to even the strictest of environmental guidelines for disposal.

Ideal Solutions for Waste Water or Industrial Filtration Needs

We have the ideal solution you need for your wastewater filter or industrial water filter requirements.

Filtra-Systems will provide your organization with custom-designed, turnkey and industry-specific filtration solutions for your company, making use of the most innovative and proven technologies appropriate for your industry.

Filtra-Systems has built its reputation on innovative approaches to industrial water filtration through the research, development and implementation of a series of patented technologies.

In fact, we take great pride in our ability to create both efficient, cost-effective and profitable (for you) filtration systems for every application you need.

Highly Effective and Innovative Technologies

One of Filtra-Systems’ premier systems is its patented STiR technology, which has the capability of cleaning 100% of filter media during backwash cycles.

This is much improved over older, less efficient systems that use other filter media, like anthracite, sand or carbon, that cannot completely fluidize during a backwash cycle.

Functioning on vacuum pressure, our STiR filters capture contaminants by catching solid material in the tortuous path of the walnut shell media bed.

The filter media is thoroughly cleaned by the agitator, which mixes the filter media and any contaminants before pumping all contaminated water through the backwash screen, leaving the filter media behind for further filtration cycles.

How Bag and Cartridge Filters Reduce Disposal Cost

Bag and Cartridge Wastewater Filters Can Help You Save Money

Water filtration can greatly reduce your waste disposal costs. How? When suspended solids are removed fromyour waste water, in many cases, it can simply be disposed of to a sewer system.

However, levels higher than allowed can incur fines, and even force the hauling of water off-site for disposal. Even more savings can be achieved with the use of pleated bags.

Seriously, in industries where the filter medium is treated as a hazardous waste (i.e. frac water), the minimization of media to be disposed of is paramount.

Pleated bags have a much greater surface area than standard bags, yet fit into the same housing. This allows for greater contaminant removal in a single piece of media. Pleated bags can remove up to 10X the contaminants as standard bags.

Bag and Cartridge Filters for a Variety of Projects

However, we do more than simply offer wastewater filters. Filtra-Systems carries a wide line of bag and cartridge housings and filters providing you the flexibility needed for your industrial water filtration challenges.

We stock activated carbon filter bags, oil absorption bags, nylon monofilament mesh, polyester and polypropylene. Cartridges are available in polyester, polypropylene, and nylon and come in a wide variety of micron sizes.

The reality is, bag and cartridge filter products are ideal for any number of different water filtration systems.

These filters can handle a range of operating temperatures and are designed for operation near-freezing to up to 338 degrees Fahrenheit.
