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

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.
