With more than three decades of experience in designing, installing, and maintaining water filtration systems, we can provide your organization with the most reliable waste water filters. The high efficiencies of our bag and cartridge filters can help minimize your disposal costs.

Our Waste Water Filters Can Help You Save Money

The filtration of water can greatly reduce a company’s waste disposal costs. If suspended solids are removed from water, in many cases in can simply be disposed of to a sewer system. Levels higher than allowed can incur fines, and even necessitate the hauling of water off-site for disposal.

Even further savings can be achieved through the use of pleated bags. 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

Water Treatment Solutions: Building Sustainable Systems

In the world of water filtration systems, sustainable water filters were at one time prohibitive to operate and design. However, Filtra-Systems’ innovative approach to building sustainable systems has made adopting a replacement technology for a sand filter both cost-effective as well as efficient. Never before has it been so easy to ensure your industrial water filter system is as “green” as it can be thanks to Filtra-Systems’ STiR filter systems.

The STiR Innovation

Performing as a Continuously Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR), our STiR technology is a patented process that has been mathematically proven to clean 100% of filter media during a single backwash cycle. The filter media itself is permanent – STiR industrial water filters use black walnut shell media, a media that is resilient, hard, chemically inert, and is a byproduct of the food processing industry. In fact, it isn’t necessary to ever replace the walnut shell media, as the typical life of our media under normal operation is 30-plus years.

More Than Just Sustainable Filter Media

While never having to replace your filter media again is a fine example of how the STiR is an excellent replacement technology for a sand filter, there are even more sustainable benefits to our patented design. Normal operation of our STiR Industrial Water Filter does not need any chemicals in order to operate, and our backwash method likewise requires no additives or surfactants.

The backwash volume generated by our STiR filter is also minuscule. Only one half of one percent of throughput is backwashed, something that none of Filtra-Systems’ competitors can claim. Combined with our high removal efficiency of 95% of suspended solids and 90% of oils and greases at 5 micron, waste is minimized – another way you can ensure your industrial water filter system is as sustainable as it can be. All of these reasons show why the STiR is an excellent replacement technology for a sand filter.
