    Top Quality Liquid Filtration Solutions

    Our Harmsco Water Better up-flow filter housings provide exceptionally long filter runs, reduced maintenance and lower filtration costs in conventional filtration applications. The patented up-flow design of these filters allows them to utilize 100% of the cartridge surface area, providing efficient filtration and improved filter life. The single jumbo cartridge design of this system makes installation and maintenance a snap and a variety of specialized filter cartridges are available in a wide range of micron ratings to treat most applications. Built with rugged stainless steel construction and electro-polished to resist corrosion, our Water Better filters will deliver a stable supply of filtered water at a fast flow rate with high volume for all your most demanding commercial and industrial applications.

    Superior Upflow Design

    Trapped air is automatically purged from the Water Better filter vessel due to the principle of up-flow filtration which allows filtered water to exit the filter at the highest point as it is filtered. A secure top plate prevents cross contamination of filtered and unfiltered liquid. Pressure rated to 150 psi and hydrostatically tested for safety and materials quality, Water Better filters are suitable for commercial or industrial use anywhere in the world.



    Why Should You Filter Your Water?

    Cool, clear water is the life force in manufacturing operations. It cools, cleans, and can be counted on to run pure and steady - unless it becomes contaminated with dirt and other pollutants, in which case it can gum up a system, increase the friction losses and induce erosion corrosion. Water contamination also wastes energy by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate to offset the lost capacity due to scaling. This can impede operations, lowering the thermal efficiency of the system and even impair the quality of the products being made.

    Water filtration is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to solve equipment fouling and scaling problems caused by dirty water. Heat exchangers, molds, pipes, tubing, sensors, monitors, and other parts become fouled when dirt particles in the water settle out on warm surfaces. Calcium and magnesium are the bonding elements that cement the dirt onto the equipment. Chemical analysis shows that the calcium and magnesium are less than 2%, while the rest is made up of airborne particles, rust, sand, biological organisms, and other contaminants. High concentrations of water pollutants can result in the need for costly repairs or replacement of the facility's mechanicals. Our up-flow commercial housings are designed to deliver unsurpassed filter performance which enables longer filter runs and reduced filtration costs to keep your equipment running efficiently.


    Features & Benefits of Water Better Filter Cartridges

    The single cartridge design allows for easy filter removal and maintenance. Water Better filter cartridges are available in a wide assortment of micron ratings and may be used in a wide range of applications.

    Water Better filters can be used with Hurricane brand cartridges. Hurricane filters can be cleaned in most applications and micron ratings making the filter elements reusable. Can be cleaned of dirt, sediment, minerals, oils, organic matter, algae and much more.
