The Benefits Of Using Industrial Water Filtration As A Means To Collect Suspended Solids

Clean, purified water is associated with using industrial water filtration as a means to collect suspended solids. Finding an industrial water filtration system capable of collecting and removing suspended solids from your water can seem like a daunting task. At Filtra-Systems, we are a global leader in industrial water filtration and separation products, systems, and technologies. We offer various industrial water filtration solutions for your water purification needs.

Filtra-Systems Walnut Shell Media Filter

In the oil field, the walnut shell media filter is used to remove suspended solids and hydrocarbons from produced water.

In power generation, metalworking, petrochemical, and chemical applications the filter treats and removes suspended solids, metal hydroxides, and oily residues from industrial wastewater.

Our industrial water filtration systems are energy efficient, with a very efficient backwash. External valves are eliminated, and there is no need for a gas scour during the backwash, eliminating other capital costs. This advanced design allows for almost continuous filtration.

The Growing Importance Of Water Conservation And The Need For Efficient Industrial Water Filtration

Water conservation is important for a plethora of reasons. Clean water is, in fact, a limited resource. Why is conserving water so important? Aside from the money saving aspects, water conservation helps prevent pollution in nearby watersheds, lakes, and rivers. There is no substitute for water. Ensuring safe, drinkable water is essential, and can be achieved through filtration.

What does an industrial water filter do?

Our STiR filter is an elite piece of technology in the realm of industrial water filters. The STiR Industrial Water Filter removes suspended solids and oil without the use of chemicals. This advanced piece of technology is known for its accuracy and success rate. The STiR technology has been mathematically proven to remove 100% of contaminants during each backwash cycle. This proven efficiency is revolutionary for water conservation and industrial water filtration.

Keep Your Coolant System Efficient With Proper Filtration

Your coolant system is unique to your application. To get the most out of your coolant, it is essential that the right filtration is used. Filtra-Systems is a worldwide leader in industrial filtration systems. We have worked with thousands of customers to create custom solutions for their individual needs.

Our variety of patented products and extensive industry experience helps us deliver custom, optimized industrial filtration systems for our customers, which are easily integrated into their operation. Our clientele ranges across many industries  and we understand that different solutions work better for certain applications, which is why we offer different types of coolant filters to fit the needs of our customers. These include vacuum, pressure, magnetic, and bag filters.

The variety of projects that we have worked on over the years allows us to offer the broadest line of equipment in the industry and handle applications from 50 gpm to 5000 gpm for every type of machining operation and cutting fluid. Our central machine tool coolant filtration systems are designed to provide operation at optimal pressures, flow rates, temperatures, and clarities.

Central coolant systems are utilized when multiple machines are integrated for an operation. Our coolant filters can be implemented in a variety of configurations, and have the advantage of providing each machine with the same coolant, at the same specifications. Operational costs are reduced, as well as the stress and cost of maintenance.

Build Filter Cakes Efficiently With A Verti-Press Automatic Filter Press

The world is continually moving towards automated operations. To identify opportunities for efficiency, one of the best places to start is by reviewing traditionally manual processes. Automatic filter presses offer multiple opportunities to increase efficiency in your operations. Filtra-Systems offers the most advanced automatic filter press available.

The Verti-Press is an automatic pressure filter that is available in multiple sizes to meet any need. An automatic filter press offers a few major advantages over the traditional manual filter press. An automatic pressure filter operates the same as a manual filter press except that the entire process doesn’t require the maintenance of a skilled laborer to complete a filter cycle.

A fully automatic filter press can be rapidly cycled and can drastically reduce the workload of an employee who would otherwise need to manually scrape plates. The vertically stacked chambers offer flexibility and improve efficiency. There is no need for workers to maintain the filter press on a daily basis, which greatly decreases the risk of human error. The fewer operational mistakes there are, the more efficient the processes may be. The automation results in a much more cost-efficient process, produces much more accurate results, and is safer. The less time spent maintaining a filter press means more time in the day can be allocated towards more important issues.

Flow Requirements and Single-Bag Versus Multi-Bag Filtration Systems

Filtra-Systems has over 30 years of experience in the industrial filtration industry. Our brand revolves around the ability to identify the needs of our customers and provide the product that will best fit their needs. Like all of our products, we have a wide variety of bag filter housing options for our customers depending on their needs.

Our bag filters have been applied in a wide variety of filtration systems, including cooling tower water, brewing, injection water, biodiesel production, coolant filtration, remediation sites, and RO protection.

Deciding whether a single bag filter or a multi-bag option works best may cause questions. A multi-bag filtration system offers a variety of advantages including higher flow rates and less downtime for bag changes. For example, FSSB multi-bag filter housings are available for flow rates up to 1200 gpm, and FSQC housings can process flow rates as high as 2300 gpm. A low profile provides easy access and spring balanced lids can be opened with one hand.

If a single bag filter option suits your needs, there are multiple advantages as well. A simple design allows the single bag filters to be economically priced. A v-clamp cover closure makes changing bags fast and easy, and tools are not needed.

Our proprietary bag clamping mechanism guarantees that our bags will be adequately sealed and the housing will accept both standard or pleated bags. Electropolished stainless steel housings are easy to clean and maintain. We have a large inventory of single-bag housings, and cartridge filters are also available to meet your immediate needs.

Choosing the proper bag and cartridge filter can be complicated, so if you have questions about our bag or cartridge filter housings, contact our team of experienced applications engineers, who will review your process and make a recommendation.

Why The STiR Industrial Water Filter Is The Most Efficient Filtration System On The Market

Worrying about replacing your filter media doesn’t need to be a concern any longer. Filtra-Systems patented STiR technology eliminates this need in your industrial water filter. STiR technology is unrivaled against competing offerings.

The STiR big advantage… it cleans 100% of the filter media during the backwash cycle.

Other industrial water filtration systems with a sand media can render a purification system useless by allowing the filter media to mudball. In a mudball situation, the only result is to waste time and money to purchase and install new filter media.

STiR industrial water filtration systems use black walnut shell media instead of the potentially problematic sand filter media. Black walnut shells are a byproduct of the food processing industry.

The benefits of these STir filters are incredible and profitable in industrial water filter applications.

By the way, Filtra-Systems leads the industry with the lowest percentage of backwash water to throughput water.

Using the STiR filter, only 1.5% of the throughput is backwashed. 95% of suspended solids and 90% of oils and greases are removed at 5 micron, and waste is minimized. It is a reliable filter that has a typical operational life of over 30 years.

STiR industrial water filters reduce the cost of reprocessing and disposal by drastically lowering waste volume. The savings of a quality industrial water filter cannot be denied.
