Industrial & Commercial Water Filters
Pure Aqua manufactures industrial water filters in commercial, institutional, seawater, tap, brackish and industrial water sectors that remove the following:
- Sediments & turbidity
- Iron and manganese
- Unpleasant tastes
- Suspended particles
- Unwanted color
With the utilization of the correct pressure tanks, valves and accurate filter media choices, Pure Aqua's industrial water filters can suit most any water filtration requirements.
Our equipment can be designed to operate manually, semi- or fully-automatically and requires very limited technical knowledge. Multi-media water filter system are a significant upgrade from single-media filters. This is primarily due to improved filter bed action based on the innovative use and selection of filter media. Multi-media filtration allows delivery of high quality filtered water at much faster flow rates, as compared to a conventional sand filter.In a conventional sand filter, lighter and finer sand particles are found at the top of the filter bed, and coarser, heavier sand particles remain at the bottom after backwashing. Filtration takes place in the top few inches of the filter bed.
A multi-media filter is backwashed in the same manner as a sand filter, using reverse or upward flow of water through the filter bed. The various layers of media retain their stratification because each material has a different density.
All Pure Aqua steel and stainless steel industrial water filters include pressure tanks constructed of high quality welded steel designed for 100 psi working pressure and tested for 150 psi. Standard pressure tanks are equipped with inlet and outlet connections, top mounted loading port (either handhole or manhole), and a side filter media removal fitting. Due to the corrosive nature of other filter media types, all carbon steel tanks are epoxy lined.
We design our filters using the correct pressure tanks, automatic or manually operated valves, filter media choice and operating conditions, our industrial water filtration solutions meet most water filtration requirements. The equipment operates in a manual using manual valves, semi- or fully-automatic using fully automated PLC or controller, and requires requiring very limited technical knowledge. Backwash initiation can be through a timer, external signal from a central control system or using a differential pressure switch.
Our filters serve the following Industries:
- Chemical Processing
- Reverse Osmosis and Desalination
- Environmental Compliance
- Food & Beverage Water Treatment
- Heat Transfer
- Agriculture and Irrigation Water
- Metal Working Fluids
- Mining Water Treatment
- Municipal Drinking Water
- Paints & Dyes
- Oil and Gas (Petroleum)
- Pharmaceutical Water Treatment
- Pulp & Paper
- City Water
- Surface or River Water
- Waste Water Treatment
- Water Softening
- Industrial Water Treatment
- Well or Underground Water
In addition to the conventional media filters, Pure Aqua has a wide range of Stainless Steel Cartridge Filter Housings. The SSC series is engineered and manufactured to handle harsh applications. We can offer different cartridge elements to meet your specifications.
What are industrial water filters?
Industrial water filters are utilized to eradicate impurities from water in industrial applications. The pores in these water filters are small enough to allow water to seep through, but not suspended solids that contaminates the water. There are a variety of industrial water filters that are built for different usage, and can be used for different applications such as water pre-treatment for reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, ultraviolet sterilizer, and ion exchange systems.
How industrial water filters work?
Industrial water filters work by removing particles from water or wastewater streams. While many kinds of industrial water filters can be used to remove suspended solids, only one of these filters is needed to produce filtered water. However, there are many instances where only a certain number and type of industrial water filter is suitable. Here are some aspects to consider when determining the right type of filter to use:
The volume of impurities in the water
Whether water needs continuous filtering or intermittent
The scope of particle sizes
The number of suspended solids in the water
The number of suspended solids wanted after filtration
The size of the particles sought in the water after filtration
How to choose the right industrial water filter?
Choosing the right filter depends on a variety of factors which must be considered in order to attain sufficient results. Such factors include, the maximum flow rate required, the average flow rate of the water, the nature of the suspended matter, the required quality of purified water, and the availability of an adequate supply of water for backwashing the filter are all basic parameters to be kept in mind.
