Improving Performance with Industrial Water Filters

Whether it’s an industrial water filter or a waste water filter, industrial water purification systems are crucial to any large-scale operation that has a need to ensure that large quantities of water are cleaned reliably and consistently. With more than three decades worth of experience in the water filtration industry, Filtra-Systems knows the value of high-performance industrial water filters – and our STiR walnut shell filter technology has what it takes to improve the filtration performance of your organization.

Patented Technology Proven to be 100% Effective

Filtra-Systems’ patented STiR technology has been proven to clean 100% of filter media during each and every backwash cycle. This is a marked improvement from other filtration technologies, such as carbon, anthracite, and sand media filters, as these filtration systems have a higher susceptibility to media fouling. Additionally, these types of industrial water filters neglect to fluidize media completely during backwash cycles. The STiR tracks the differential pressure as water flows over the media bed. Because it always returns to the same pressure differential after a backwash, we know that all contaminants have been removed.

STiR filters also feature increased effectiveness when it comes to disposal and maintenance costs. When other waste water filters like sand filters are tasked with cleaning oil from contaminated water sources, this often causes filter media to “mudball” to the point where it becomes largely ineffective, even when subjected to extended or additional backwash cycles. The end product is possibly unsafe water and increased disposal costs – as well as a heightened replacement cycle for the filter media. With Filtra-Systems STiR technology these risks are minimized, helping to control costs and increase the effectiveness of your industrial water filter system.

Innovation at Work for Improved Filtration Performance

Our STiR technology uses a vacuum pump to draw water through the crushed black walnut shell media bed. Contaminants captured by the filter system restrict water flow, which increases the differential pressure across the bed. Once this pressure reaches a set point, the backwash cycle begins. During this cycle, the filtration media is cleansed and any contaminants are eliminated through the use of an agitator, which mixes the contaminants and filter media together before pumping the waste water through a backwash pipe. The backwash screen allows the contaminated water to exit while the filter media remains behind for another filtration cycle.
