Industry Overview:

The definition of filtration – the removal of solids from fluids (liquids or gases) by passing the solution through a filter – does little to capture the true depth of this field. In our modern society in which chemicals go into nearly everything, ensuring the purity of these chemicals is essential. Filtration does everything from treating our drinking water to increasing the purity of the electronic chemicals used in the creation of smartphones and computers. In addition to increasing product purity, it can assist in meeting stringent rules on discharges, minimize wastes, and increase sustainability.

From reverse osmosis to woven metal technologies the filtration industry continues to drive innovation and create new products to address filtration needs in everything from oil and gas refining to aquarium water.

Common Applications:
  • Solvents, etc.
  • Product purity, testing
