River Water Filtration

The industries in which we operate and the product applications we have are extensive and here we provide a sector by sector breakdown. For a more specific solution please do not hesitate to contact us directly.


Principal Applications

River Water Filtration

 For many process industries along with commercial user's river water make a convenient source for water for both processes and cooling of building environments. Unfortunately many of these natural sources are not as clean as the water supplied by our utility companies, but with careful selection these water sources can be easily transformed into low cost process water.

River water has been successfully used for the air conditioning of shore side or riverside buildings for many years, but with the advent of high efficiency heat exchangers to minimise energy used in maintaining our building temperatures we can no longer use the water as provided. New depth filter technology can provide a simple yet effective solution depending on the level of quality required by the equipment.

For industry, river water has been a convenient and readily available source of both process and cooling water, here again the quality of the water provided is increasingly becoming an issue both to user within the process and afterwards, top the environmentalist when the water is returned back to source. The solution again can be met in many instances with high performance filtration systems.

Gravity drum filter

For the intake from a river or canal this first stage filtration relies upon gravity for its feed, this system can be used as a self cleaning inlet screen to protect the pumps downstream from larger particles and fish normally found in these waters.


This depth filtration system effectively filters down to 20 micron and can be invaluable for the protection of heat exchangers and water fed cooling systems, whether for direct cooling or make up water for cooling towers SpinClean can offer a robust solution

CrossFlow media filtration sand filter

For more efficient process heat exchanges,  and manufacturing processes , filtration to better than 1.0 micron is essential to maintain the design performance.  Many of today's   high efficiency systems are based on "clean water " There design do not allow for progressive particulate fouling unless the client wishes to pay the huge energy penalty, and the extra maintenance required to keep systems on line.

Self Cleaning Inlet Screens

There is a number of reliable self cleaning inlet screens were extraction is via a submerged pipeline rather than via a culvert (GDS system) these can use either pumped backwash water or compressed air to backwash debris from the filter thereby affording protection to downstream pumps, whilst acting as the prefilter for other finer filtration.

They are available as wedge wire or mesh systems with filtration down to 1.0 mm
