New Low Pressure Automatic Water Filter Reduces Pump Energy Requirement

Forsta introduces a new line of low pressure automatic industrial water filters. Low Pressure self-cleaning water filters range from 2″-30″ with flow rates range from 15-20,000gpm in a single filter housing . Until now self-cleaning water filters required over 35psi for backwashing, but the new Low Pressure Series design provides an ideal energy saving solution […]

Forsta Filters for Greenhouse

Every greenhouse irrigation system should incorporate proper filtration of the water supply to protect small drip or sprinkler orifices from clogging. Any clogging (which may occur if unfiltered water is utilized) will cause disastrous results in uniformity. In the case of drip irrigation, some plant material will not be irrigated at all if the lines […]

World Water Day 2010: United States Facing Its Own “Quiet Crisis”

RACINE, Wisconsin – As World Water Day 2010 was observed today across the globe, The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread announced a new initiative to focus long-overdue attention on the emerging freshwater crisis within the United States. Intensified by climate change, this “quiet crisis” threatens access to safe drinking water, the reliable supply of surface water […]

Proper cooling tower maintenance increases power plant efficiency

An improperly maintained cooling tower will produce warmer cooling water, resulting in a condenser temperature 5-10 F higher than a properly maintained tower – reducing efficiency and reliability of the chiller while wasting energy, increasing costs, and shortening tower operating life. Many power plant operators tend to overlook the importance of the cooling tower in […]

Benefits of Water Filtration in Industrial HVAC Tower

HVAC is the abbreviated term for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning and finds its use in environments where humidity and temperature must be closely regulated while providing safe and healthy working conditions. HVAC operates on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. In order to maintain comfortable working temperatures in large industrial units […]

Side-Stream or Full-Flow Filtration

Effective filtration is important to keep your heat transfer fluid clear of particles, coke and sludge that will coat the heat transfer surfaces and degrade heat transfer. But what type of filtration system do you need? The decision to filter your heat transfer fluid is the first step in the right direction. There could have […]

New Green-Clean Technology Optimizes Self-Cleaning Industrial Water Filters

Forsta Filters Inc. has revolutionized the industrial water filter industry with the release of its Green-Clean technology, reducing backwash waste water by as much as 75%. 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 […]
