Industrial Water Filters

Nancrede Engineering’s line of catalogued vertical industrial water filters for industrial water purification offers the most complete range of sizes and water filter media available, including industrial carbon filters and industrial iron filters. All units automatically backwash and rinse on a periodic time clock basis in order to cleanse and reclassify the filter media. Sediment filters incur an increased pressure loss from inlet to outlet as filtered particles collect in the bed. As an option, these industrial water filters can be furnished to backwash and rinse on a preset pressure loss basis. The M series (manganese greensand) filters require a periodic regeneration in order to function properly. An optional regenerate system is available to facilitate regeneration. For high total dissolved solids (TDS) and high turbidity (NTU), ultra filtration (UF) systems should be used.  They also filter much smaller particles down to 0.02 micron.

In addition to service flow, the selection of a filter system must take into account the available backwash flow rate. This is the most important function in the proper operation of a filter. Periodically, the accumulated impurities (iron, sediment, etc.) must be removed (backwashed) from the filter. Backwash flow rates are always much higher than service flow rates and therefore limit the size of filter that can be installed. As a general rule in sizing filters, select the largest filter that can be backwashed with the flow rate available at the point of filter installation, then note the service flow rate for the filter selected. If it is not adequate for the flow to be treated, a twin or triple filter installed in parallel is required. Or an ultra filtration (UF) systems can be used as they have much smaller backwash rates.
