Common Industrial Applications Of High Flow Water Filters

Filtra-Systems is an innovative company that is dedicated to providing solutions for our customers and their industries. We specialize in industrial water treatment and water processing solutions. We offer a variety of solutions for your company’s needs in order to minimize the need for multiple technologies, reduce operating costs and positively impact the environment.

At Filtra-Systems, we offer different industrial water treatment options depending on your needs. Our high flow water filters are optimal for water processing in different industries. Our river protection filter is designed to handle large amounts of water to be discharged to fish-bearing rivers. The river protection filters uses our STiR technology for highly efficient results.

The high-flow water filter was tested in the Bow River, which receives 4700 gallons/day of waste water (which includes fish waste, suspended solids, fish food, etc.) from the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery (which raises about 3 million fish yearly). The STiR filter was evaluated to see if it would effectively remove waste material from the discharge stream. The results of the three week evaluation period exceed our expectations, and showed that the STiR filter would be able to reduce the total discharge to less than 22 kg/day (the plant’s discharge limit).

Our results concluded that the STiR filter could reduce the amount of solids by a factor of 10. A single STiR filter was used to achieve this reduction. The plant now is in environmental compliance, and protects the water from pollution.

Our STiR filter is unlike any other water processing filter offered on the market. We take pride in our highly-engineered, customized technology that sets new standards for products to follow. Read more about the STiR technology and the benefits it provides your company here.

Save On Filtration Media Replacement Costs With The STiR Filters’ Unique Backwash Cycle

At Filtra-Systems, we strive to engineer technology that will reduce our customers costs and improve overall efficiency and productivity. As industry leaders, we are known for our modern, advanced technology. We are constantly coming up with new ways to improve our products so they will conserve energy, reduce costs and comply with safety procedures and regulations.

How can you reduce costs with the STiR Filter?

The STiR Industrial Water Filter is a one-of-a-kind piece of technology. This industrial water filtration system is used primarily in the waste water treatment process. The features of this technology include the regeneration of its filter media through its unique backwash cycle. The reuse of media has the advantage of reducing operating costs and having a positive impact on the environment.

What makes the STiR Industrial Water Filter’s backwash cycle unique?

The STiR filter utilizes a filter media consisting of black walnut shells, which have a very high modulus of elasticity. This means that the media does not break apart into smaller pieces very easily. We use this property to perform a very aggressive backwash cycle, which utilizes a mixer to agitate the bed. Because the shells do not break apart, we can agitate at a very high rate, ensuring that 100% of the bed fluidizes. This means that the STiR has the most efficient backwash on the market because it removes 100% of contaminants, every time.

At Filtra-Systems, we offer various bag filters for water treatment. We have engineered products over the past 30 years to better serve our clients based on their needs and feedback. As industry leaders, it is our responsibility to manufacture elite industrial water filtration products. Below is a list of the bag filters for water that we offer:

  • Single Bag Filter Housings
  • Multi-Bag Filter Housings
  • Duplex Bag Filter Housings
  • Replacement Filter Bags
  • Engineered to Order Filter Systems

What does a bag filtration system do?

Bag filters for water treatment are placed inside the bag filter housings, in order to remove suspended solids from waste water. However, the specific bag filters used varies depending on the industry in which they are used. Bag filtration systems are used the treatment of groundwater, cooling water, industrial process water, wastewater, and many other purposes. In summation, bag filters are used to remove suspended solids from liquids in various scenarios and industries.

When do you require a carbon filter media?

Carbon filter media is a special type of bag filtration system designed specifically for water and wastewater purification purposes. Carbon filter media is essential in the removal of heavy metals and organic materials from water and wastewater. The activated carbon removes contaminants from the water for more effective purification than a simple barrier can provide. This process is important for safety and water reuse purposes.

How Proper Coolant Filtration Can Increase Efficiency

Many of our customers are looking to increase process efficiency when they begin to search for a new filtration system. At Filtra-Systems, we have worked with thousands of customers to meet their industrial filtration needs. Whether it is industrial water filters or central coolant filtration systems, our experts design and engineer products customized to our customer’s needs. We understand that not one single solution will work for every company, so we take pride in our customized solutions for customers.

Here we will explain how proper coolant filtration can increase efficiency.

It is no secret that we are all about maximizing and increasing efficiency. We spend large amounts of time engineering products that will be long lasting and maximize efficiency and production for our customers. Our customer’s satisfaction is our main concern when building new equipment. Our coolant filtration systems are designed to operate at the optimal pressure, flow rate, and temperature for each individual operation.

Individual coolant filtration systems are used in applications that require single filters for each CNC machine. A central system can be designed for operation with multiple cutting machines. By designing your central system around our coolant filters, you are providing the machines with the same temperature, concentration, and pressure of the coolant. By doing this, the most efficient filter may be installed.

Using the proper coolant filtration equipment from Filtra-Systems will eliminate the need to operate and maintain multiple coolant filters. This will result in an overall enhancement of product quality and reduce operating and maintenance costs.
