Superior Filtration

Industries

Superior filtration has over 36 years’ experience in the filtration industry. We have the expertise to assess your filtration needs and supply fit-for-purpose solutions, no matter what they are.

Key industries we work in

With a minimal number of moving parts, and with automation built in to a greater or lesser extent – all of our filters have been designed to require very low levels of maintenance. Their reliability and the levels of automation mean: less risk of downtime and reduced lifetime costs.

Mineral Processing

Mining

Oil & Gas

Petrochemicals

Potable Water & Sewage Wastewater

Other Industries

We understand that no two filtration requirements are exactly the same.

For this reason, we believe in working closely with our clients to determine their specific filtration needs. Only then can we provide the best possible, long-term filtration solution.

Mineral Processing

Filtration is vital for effective management of water. It is an indispensable step in the preparation of process water and facilitates the re-use of water within the plant, as well as  helping transform effluent water to a safe-for-discharge state. All of our filters have been designed to require little maintenance, and low levels of management. Their reliability means: less risk of downtime and reduced lifetime costs.

Mining

Our filters play a vital role in managing water globally on many mines. There are many varied needs for filtration in mining and minerals operations. Superior Filtration caters for most of them. A growing need is to make sure that water is re-used, where possible, and that waste water is disposed of in an environmentally responsible way. All of our filters have been designed to require very low levels of maintenance. Their reliability and the levels of automation mean: less risk of downtime and reduced lifetime costs.

Case Studies

Oil & Gas

The oil and gas industry is divided into two parts. These include upstream and downstream activities. While upstream refers to the sourcing and production of crude oil, downsteam relates to the refining process of crude oil. With a minimal number of moving parts, our filters are utilised in both upstream and downstream and have been designed to require little maintenance. Their reliability means: less risk of downtime and reduced lifetime costs.

Petrochemicals

Besides the fact that effective filtration is integral to the operation of petrochemical plants, the importance of water management within the industry, cannot be underestimated. Our filtration systems create a more efficient plant by recycling water and reducing water consumption. They also assist in the environmental imperative of making effluent water safe for discharge.

Industries in which we have experience include:

  • NRefining
  • NPharmaceutical
  • NPlastics

Potable Water & Sewage Wastewater

Municipal water provides water to households and businesses. Filtration plays a vital role in ensuring this water is potable (safe for drinking). Our filtration systems are used to remove any unwanted substances from the ‘raw’ water which enters a water purification plant.

We understand that no two filtration requirements are exactly the same. For this reason, we believe in working closely with our clients to determine their specific filtration needs. Only then can we provide the best possible, long-term filtration solution.

Other Industries

Our filters are designed to deliver the high quality of process water needed for industrial applications. They also reduce water usage by enabling the ‘cleaning’ of water for repeated use. Being aware of the environmental responsibility facing the industry; our products have been built with low-maintenance and reliability in mind. This means the risk of down-time is reduced and the safe discharge of wastewater is given the highest priority.

Industries in which we have experience include:

  • NAgricultural and Horticultural
  • NAutomotive
  • NBrewing & Distilling
  • NFood & Agri Processing
  • NNuclear
  • NPulp & Paper
  • NPower Generation
  • NQuarrying
  • NRubber Processing
  • NTextiles
