Answers to Common Questions About Industrial Water Filters and Filtration Systems

Industrial filtration systems are essential to the operations of companies in a wide range of industries.

There are many different types of industrial water filters to accommodate different needs.

Filtra-Systems, with more than four decades of accumulated knowledge about filtration, has the ability to answer your questions about how you can make your filtration system more efficient.

What Are the Benefits of Walnut Shell Industrial Water Filters Over Traditional Sand Filters?

There are many advantages to the use of walnut shell media over that of sand, especially when removing oil and suspended solids.

Walnut shell filters are bed filters, meaning they work by removing contaminants through a granular media before they are removed through a tortuous path moving through the media. Once filled with contaminants, it is backwashed, which is cleaning the bed (filter media) without the added cost of media disposal.

The STiR technology used in Filtra-Systems industrial filtration systems has proven to clean 100% of the filter media during each backwash cycle saving you time and media costs.

What is the Most Important Feature to Look for When Purchasing Industrial Water Filters?

There are many different types of industrial filtration systems used across a wide array of industries.

The primary goal of each company and application is to choose the filters that result in the best water filtration possible. After that, the needs vary in size and design due to the difference in systems and the types of contaminants that need to be filtered out of the liquid.

The brewing industry uses bag filters to separate grains from sugars, remove proteins from slowing the fermentation process, and also remove any unwanted solids prior to bottling.

This requires different bags, as the tighter bags used towards the end of the process can have adverse effects on beer if used in the early stages of brewing

Mining and Chemical

Bag filters used in these industries must be stainless steel and frequently carry an ASME stamp.

These bag filters and processes must meet stringent regulations, and frequently must be capable of filtering sub-micron particles.

Water and Wastewater Purification

To remove contaminants from water, bag filters along with other purification methods, such as the use of activated carbon or reverse osmosis, are frequently used.

Filtering wastewater for reuse means having the capacity to eliminate all types and sizes of contaminants to meet regulations and ensure safety.

Industrial bag filters are used to filter water according to the type and size of particles that are in the water.

3 Benefits of Automatic Filter Presses Have Over Manual Filter Presses

Below are 3 benefits automatic filter presses offer over manual ones.

Benefit One: Increased Filtration Time

Fully automatic filter presses can be rapidly cycled, especially as compared to their manual counterparts. With an automatic belt wash, time spent scraping plates is eliminated, freeing up man-hours for other projects.

The unique design of the Verti-Press utilizes vertically stacked chambers that offer flexibility and improve wash efficiency for a more even product.

Benefit Two: Increased Efficiency

Automation if not removes, then greatly reduces the potential for error in any process, resulting in a safer, more efficient process that uses fewer materials and lowers costs.

The use of an automatic filter press produces more accurate and precise results. The size of the filter cake can be dialed in by selecting the amount of slurry fed into the press during each cycle.

Benefit Three: Requires Less Energy

Any reduction in labor and error results in better energy efficiency.

As multiple industries look for more energy-efficient processes and “green” technology, the benefits of using an automatic filter press are also expected to grow.

The Verti-Press automatic filter press from Filtra-Systems is the most advanced product of its kind available today.

Which Filtration System Is Right For Your Business?

Choosing the right filter press is essential for an effective filtration system.

It can often be difficult to choose a reliable filter press that is easily maintained, cost-effective, and simple to operate. However, Filtra-Systems offers high-quality filter presses that pass the test of time, and are easily maintained and managed.

For instance, the Verti-Press Vertical Tower Filter Press is an effective and efficient system for slurry dewatering. The multiple stacked chambers allow for a more efficient process.

One advantage is individual chambers can be taken offline to enable continued runtime.

Another advantage is maintenance can be put off until the entire system is shut down, therefore the amount of lost working time is greatly reduced. Your operating costs can be decreased and maintenance processes more easily managed.

Functional industrial filtration systems are essential for many processes.

Filter cakes with remove as much water as possible from the solids in the treatment system are often desired.

The Verti-Press has the power to create a high volume of solids and extract the most water possible.

And, the Verti-Press Tower Filter Press has side seals for a fully enclosed filtrate design, which increases process safety by cutting down on potential process exposure outside of the filter. It is a highly efficient and highly functional industrial filtration system and is at the forefront of filter press technology.

Filtra-Systems has a commitment to continued research and progress in the filtration industry.
