Why You Should Replace Your Industrial Sand Filter

Sand filters have been used for water filtration since the early 19th century, and their success is mainly due to their simple design. Filtra-Systems has over 30 years of experience providing advanced industrial water filtration systems to our clients, and that has shown us that there are drawbacks to using sand filtration, especially in modern times, when companies have become increasingly aware of the need to conserve energy and lower overall water usage.

Filtra-Systems Understands the Drawbacks of Industrial Sand Filtration

Sand filters are often used in areas in which removal of suspended matter from water or waste water is required. Unfortunately, these filters also require frequent cleaning, which in turn produces large quantities of polluted rinse water that itself must then be cleaned and disposed of properly. This can create environmental issues and increased maintenance costs.

Additional problems can arise when the water source introduces oil into the sand filter. This can cause the sand bed to become clogged and uncleanable, even when treated with extended backwash cycles, and results in increased disposal costs and potentially unsafe water. Typical sand replacement is every 3-5 years, but the introduction of oil can dramatically decrease the life of the bed.

The Best Replacement Technology for a Sand Filter May Not Be a New Sand Filter

Filtra-Systems can help you to find a replacement for your industrial sand filter that provides improved water quality while reducing bed replacement costs and lowering backwash volumes. The solution we offer for replacement of sand filters is the patented STiR Walnut Shell Filter, which can decrease your use of chemical compounds while producing higher removal efficiencies, especially of oil and grease. Plus, the walnut shell media in the STiR never needs to be replaced.

So contact Filtra-Systems today to learn more about the STiR and other industrial water filtration systems that can save you money while improving efficiency.

Why A Customized Industrial Water Treatment System is a Superior Choice

Do you have an aging industrial water treatment system, or is your system inefficient? Often when you purchase a system from a disreputable supplier the effectiveness of your industrial water treatment system is in question. Additionally, aging systems can incur substantial maintenance fees and result in poor treatment of your wastewater or groundwater.

On the other hand, a customized industrial system can provide your business with an incredibly efficient industrial water treatment system. Filtra-Systems has a diverse lineup of products, ranging from bag and cartridge filters to walnut shell filters. Each of our products are designed with the highest quality and efficiency in mind, and we offer customized solutions to address all of your filtration and cooling needs.

Our team members have decades of experience designing, building, and installing several types of customized industrial water treatment solutions for different industries. Some of these industries include the metalworking industry, water and wastewater industry, and chemical industries. Each process is different and customized to each of these industries and clients. For example, Filtra-Systems developed several technologies to remove suspended solids and oil from industrial wastewater, allowing the water to be recycled in the wastewater industry. We also developed technologies to reduce energy consumption and cut down on labor requirements to maintain systems in the chemical industry.

4 Advantages of Cooling Tower Filtration

Increase the life of your system with cooling tower filtration solutions provided by Filtra-Systems. Almost every industrial site has a cooling tower, and our solutions promote cleaner systems and more effective cooling. We offer several types of filters for your needs including magnetic, vacuum, pressure, bag filters, and more. Our central filtration systems help your system perform at its maximum efficiency, providing many advantages to your business. Below we will discuss a few key advantages of cooling tower filtration.

Save Energy

If you wish your cooling system worked at maximum efficiency, cooling tower filtration is an excellent option for you. Cooling tower water treatment increases the efficiency of your cooling tower by recirculating the water and removing particles such as suspended solids. If your cooling system is operating at maximum efficiency, you save money and decrease maintenance.

Less Maintenance

As we mentioned above, using cooling tower filtration decreases maintenance costs by ensuring that your cooling system is operating at maximum capacity. This reduces cleaning of spray nozzles, heat exchanger plates, and other points of material build-up.

Longer Lifespan

With less maintenance and greater output, your cooling system can significantly increase its working lifespan. Your system easily stays at its optimal levels, helping you avoid costly downtime in order to replace parts.

Reduced Cost

By installing a filtration system on your cooling system, you will spend less time cleaning your system to reach the system’s maximum efficiency. Not only are you saving on energy and maintenance costs, you avoid expenses such as replacement parts, which can add up down the road.

These are but a few of the many advantages of cooling tower filtration systems. At Filtra-Systems, we know that customers have needs based on their industry and business; that’s why we offer custom design and engineered central filtration systems.
