Process Filters

Waterex uses the full spectrum of our filter technologies to deliver the appropriate water treatment solution for process applications. Waterex's designs are backed by our own laboratory capability as well as input from our suppliers allowing Waterex to continually develop state of the art solutions for each client's specific application.

Our process filters are designed to remove organics to below 2 ppm and suspended solids down to 10 microns, typically to less than 5 microns. For critical applications air scouring can be used to assist in backwashing. An air blown purge is integrated into the filter in full pregnant liquor recovery applications.

Waterex uses process filters to provide solutions for many applications including:

  • Condensate polishing
  • Precipitate recovery
  • Roughing filtration
  • Organic removal
  • Electrolyte polishing
  • Oil removal from boiler condensates 
  • Oil recovery in machine shop or automotive applications
  • Oil recovery in process applications
  • Polishing prior to ion exchange
  • Steel mill cooling water recycle
  • Solvent extraction filtration

Pilot Plant
If you have a challenging process application that doesn't quite fit the convention or your process chemistry is different we are happy to talk to you about labwork or pilot trials that may be of benefit in this instance. We have a wide range of process filter pilot plants available for use on-site or at our premises in Perth.
