Industrial Water Purification Systems | STiR Industrial Water Filter
the next generation of industrial water filter systems
Filtra-Systems has been providing industrial manufacturers with the best in industrial filtration systems for almost four decades.
Our patented STiR fluidization technology has been validated in production and mathematically proven to clean 100% of the filter media during each backwash cycle.
This effectiveness makes the STiR industrial water filter unmatched among industrial water purification systems, when compared to older technologies like sand, anthracite, and carbon media filters which do not completely fluidize the media during backwash and are highly susceptible to media fouling.
When removing suspended solids and oil, these STiR water purifying systems provide double the throughput efficiency of conventional sand filters or graded mixed media filters.
Under normal operating conditions, the STiR industrial water filter removes 95% to 99% of suspended solids and 90% to 99% of insoluble hydrocarbons, without expensive hazardous chemicals.
how The stir works
As contaminants are captured and flow is restricted, a vacuum pressure builds.
Once the vacuum pressure reaches its designated set point, the regeneration cycle is automatically triggered, the media is cleaned, and the contaminants are removed.
This process is verified via the visual indicating media bed sight glass located on each unit, and return of the vacuum pressure to its clean bed set point of 0 inches Hg.
Once proper vacuum pressure is reached, the STiR industrial water filter begins the patented media cleaning/regeneration process. All flow is eliminated and the agitator becomes energized to completely stir the tank.
The philosophy is all of the filter media and contaminants captured become a homogeneous mixed slurry in the filter tank.
Already mixed, process water is allowed to enter via the filter inlet, while the pump pulls the liquid containing all of the contaminants out through the backwash exit pipe.
The filter media remains in the industrial water filter during this cycle by the backwash screen, next, contaminated water flows through and is sent to upstream processing or waste handling.

engineered & Supported to meet your REQUIREMENTS
Single filtration units are able to process 50 to 6,500 gpm each, depending on the application.
These industrial water purification systems are pre-assembled and shipped to your site, skid mounted, ready for installation.
Units that have a diameter greater than 20' have filtration tanks designed in easily shipped and site assembled sections, to minimize freight and installation costs while maximizing single unit throughput.
