VAF Filtration Systems
For over 30 years VAF Filtration Systems has been providing filtration solutions worldwide with a business model built on Simplicity, Quality and Integrity. VAF was incorporated in 1985 with a charter to distribute and manufacture innovative fluid handling equipment for industry. In 1993 VAF began manufacturing automatic self-cleaning water filters and control valves leading up to the introduction of the V-SeriesTM filter in 2002.
Our flagship VAF filters, the V-SeriesTM, are automatic self-cleaning screen filters used “Wherever Water Flows” and can remove suspended solids from 1500 to 10 micron. Individual filters and pre-assembled filtration systems are used in applications for pre-filtration of membrane, ultra-violet and other micro filtration technologies, as well as applications for industrial water reuse, water and wastewater, cooling towers, seawater, river intake water, well water, groundwater re-injection (frac water), irrigation and many more. Systems can be designed to handle any range of flow rates.
The standard V-SeriesTM filters are competitively priced while manufactured in 316L stainless steel and can be built to meet ASME Pressure Vessel Code requirements (ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1 requirements). In addition, the stainless steel filter bodies come with a 5 year warranty against leaks (consult VAF for details). The patented Bi-directional Hydrodynamic Drive (BHD) design DOES NOT require electric motors, limit switches, gearboxes, hydraulic pistons or any external shaft seals. The cleaning cycle of each filter takes less than 15 seconds and does not interrupt flow or the filtration process.
We also offer a complete line of fabricated skid packages, complete with pump, filter, controls and valves. The LCF-Series and CTF-Series are skids specifically designed for cooling tower side stream systems. These "Plug & Go" units are easily installed and are not only energy-efficient, but extremely cost-effective in eliminating unnecessary blow downs. The cooling tower packages also offer an optional basin agitation system called the Turbulator™, which keeps debris in suspension so that the side stream filtration system can maintain a clean basin.
VAF supplies parts and service (including complete filter rebuilds) for VAF filters as well as for other major filtration brand names, including Orival Filters and Amiad/Filtomat Filters. A staff of professional engineers has the capability to design virtually any size manifolded systems for any flow rate required.
