4 Steps In Industrial Water Purification

Filtra-Systems knows what it takes to perform industrial water filtration. However, the full process can seem mysterious to outside observers.

For this reason, here’s how a general industrial water purification system works.

Step One: Screening

Source water, either from a natural or industrial source, will typically pass through a screen as it enters industrial filtration systems.

This step is important because it keeps large material out of the water system, which can clog or otherwise disrupt the purification processes.

Step Two: Coagulation/Flocculation

The second step is usually the addition of chemicals to the water to be treated.

This causes the formation of small yet sticky particles known as floc to begin forming.

In turn, this floc will attract larger and larger particles.

This leads to the now-larger particulate to either sink to the bottom of the floc tank for conveyor removal or rise to the top to be skimmed off.

Step Three: Filtration

Filtration is a critical part of the majority of industrial water purification systems.

The water will be pumped through one of many different types of filters, leaving the accumulated floc behind in the filtration media.

These filters, which can be made from cloth, crushed black walnut shell (BWS or NSF), sand, or carbon, trap and remove even more particulate as the water passes through them.

For example, one of Filtra-Systems’ patented filtration processes involves the use of walnut shell media.

Step Four: Disinfection

The now-filtered water is then pumped into a closed tank where disinfectant chemicals such as chlorine are used to destroy any bacteria or other microorganisms that may have survived the filtration process.

Other technologies include ultrafiltration (filters with pores of 0.2 micron or less), purification with ultra-violet light (UV), or reverse osmosis (RO).

Wastewater Filters For All Industries

We take our role of providing innovative filtration solutions seriously, which is why Filtra-Systems is constantly designing new types of wastewater filters that operate in ways the industry has never seen before.

This includes our patented STiR filtration technology, which is capable of cleaning 100% of filter media every single backwash cycle. The wastewater filters we have developed incorporate the use of crushed black walnut shell as a filter media, a very resilient material that can be sustainably sourced, and is also much more efficient at removing particulate when compared to anthracite or carbon filters.

Industrial Bag Filters of All Types and Needs

Of course, no wastewater filtration system is complete without the proper industrial bag filters installed as a final protection.

Here at Filtra-Systems, we know that any high-performance wastewater filter needs to be paired together with the perfect industrial bag filters to get the most out of your filtration system, and that’s why we offer a large array of filters to satisfy the needs of our clients.

Our bag filter choices include oil absorption, nylon monofilament mesh, activated carbon, and needle felt filter bags.

These filters are durable enough to withstand a large range of operational temperatures, from near freezing to 338 degrees Fahrenheit.
