Discover How These 3 Industrial Processes Benefit From Filtration

See how our industrial filtration systems can benefit your business in these three different situations where our products have made a huge impact on the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of particular companies.

We have found it very easy to make claims regarding the abilities of your products, but what really counts is the ability to prove that your products work exactly as described.

Eastman Kodak

Eastman Kodak has been one of the leading names in imaging for decades, going back to the original personal cameras. At the Eastman Kodak facility located in the northwestern US, the company produces chemicals that are used to process a wide range of health imaging films.

Eastman Kodak had been using a rotary drum filtration system to filter, wash, and dewater their products. However, the company conducted a study to find a more effective and efficient process. Their research found that a vertical tower filter press would make a major difference.

The one chosen was the Filtra-Systems Verti-Press because it offered far superior efficiency and the ability to operate with any arrangement of chambers offline (for maximum maintenance versatility).

The Modern CNC Machine Shop Floor

For decades the average CNC machine shop used a central coolant system that utilized trenches in the floor as a way to transfer contaminated coolant from the various machines to a central pit.

These filters were typically located at the end of a sloped trench. Not only was this highly inefficient, but in many instances, routine maintenance was very difficult and costly.

Today, CNC facilities are installing a centralized machine tool coolant filtration system that is located on the floor rather than under it.

Not only does this system do away with the need for trenches running under the floor, it also allows management to modify the number of filters. In fact, the entire system, as their facility or needs change.

The STiR Industrial Water Filter

Achieving the highest possible level of wastewater filtration is more important than ever because regulations have become more stringent.

By contrast, while industrial water filters using sand, anthracite, and carbon media have their uses, they have always been susceptible to media failure due to fouling. This leads to increased downtime and expense, as the filter media must be changed on a regular basis.

By way of comparison, our patented STiR technology has been tested and proven to remove up to 95% of suspended solids, and 90% of insoluble hydrocarbons from your wastewater.

More importantly, our STiR industrial water filters do not need the addition of chemicals to achieve these results. Individual units that can process fro 50-6,500 gpm, and will be happy to build you complete systems that are ready to be installed.

By the way, over the past 40 years, we have found that there is no such thing as one size fits all when it comes to industrial wastewater filtration. That’s why we offer a complete range of custom water filtration systems which can be used to improve your business’ efficiency while reducing  your operating costs.
