Pressure Filter by Water Equipment And Treatment Services (WETS)

WETS offer vertical or horizontal pressure filters process require to send well water directly to GST. They are ideal for smaller flows and buildings accommodating higher headroom but compact footprints.

What is Pressure Filter?

Pressure Filters Water Treatment works as the process of removing the chemicals by contracting granular media with the help of a fluid stream. The use of Pressure filter is not restricted to serve a single purpose, it has a wide range of usability such as conventional filtration media, activated carbon media, oxidative granular ferric hydroxide GFH media​ to remove arsenic content.

Types of Pressure Filters

There are two types of Industrial Pressure Filters.

  1. Vertical Pressure Filter (VPF).
  2. Horizontal Pressure Filter (HPF).

Vertical Pressure Filter (VPF)

Vertical pressure filter subsists a pressure vessel having an over-drain system to distribute the flowing water and collect the backwash waste. Vertical Pressure Filter helps in

    • Maintaining System pressure via the treatment process
    • Eliminating the backwash supply pumps
    • Utilizing several media configurations
    • Isolating individual filtration vessels

Features of VPF

    • Enclosed Filtration System
    • Air Scour Backwash
    • Underdrains can be connected
    • Multiple vessels in a single system
 

Benefits of VPF

    • Line pressure is maintained
    • Re-pumping is eliminated after filtration
    • Provides the most effective backwash
    • Reduced backwash flow rate
    • Flexibility of Operations

Applications of VPF

    • For the removal of such as iron, manganese, PFAS, and arsenic
    • As a pretreatment to Reverse Osmosis
    • To remove fluoride
    • As the cooling tower make-up
    • As the surface water treatment
    • To treat water to be used for other industrial purposes

Horizontal Pressure Filter (HPF)

Horizontal Pressure Filter subsists a pressure vessel having an over-drain system to distribute the flowing water and collect the backwash waste. Horizontal Pressure Filter allows

    • To maximize the filtration area
    • To maintain system pressure throughout the process
    • To eliminate backwash supply pumps
    • To utilize assorted media configurations

Features of HPF

    • Enclosed Filtration System
    • Air Scour Backwash
    • Curved plate under-drain
    • Common under-drain system
    • Multiple cells in a single vessel

Benefits of HPF

    • Line pressure is maintained
    • Re-pumping is eliminated after filtration
    • Provides the most effective backwash
    • Reduced backwash flow rate
    • Allows easy inspection

Applications of HPF

    • For the removal of such as iron, and manganese
    • To remove arsenic for groundwater
    • Help in Industrial water treatment process
    • Works with a wide range of operating pressures
    • Manufacturing includes non-code or ASME code with a stamp.
