Irrigation Technology Reduces Waste Water

Forsta Filters has developed technology for reducing backwash waste water by as much as 75 percent. The company’s technology is called Green-Clean.

Without interrupting system flow during backwash, Green-Clean technology utilizes smaller flush valves to minimize the volume of water required to remove buildup on a filter element. Using internal vacuum nozzles, the new Green-Clean system scans and removes debris from the filter in 15 seconds or less. This combination of short duration and small flush valve make the Green-Clean backwash cycle efficient.

Forsta Filters offers a full line of self-cleaning water filters (1- to 36-inch flange size) with screen elements ranging from 5 to 4,000 micron. Integrating the Green-Clean technology in all products maximizes efficiency and reduces waste water and energy costs. Filters are constructed from all stainless steel and designed to provide a long-term solution to a wide range of industrial and municipal applications.
