Forsta offers a free water testing service for customers looking to determine the most cost-effective water filtration system. Send a one gallon water sample and Forsta will determine the right solution for your application. With a representative water sample our engineers can estimate how often a self-cleaning filter will backwash and how much screen area will be needed to achieve the desired filtration degree.
Quality Systems, Service, and Support
The self-cleaning mechanism in a Forsta self-cleaning filters eliminate the need for routine maintenance by automating the cleaning cycle. Differential pressure is monitored by the controller which initiates the backwash cycle automatically. As a result, Forsta self-cleaning technology saves maintenance time and operating cost. Manual washes, spray downs, filter, cartridge and bag replacements become unnecessary. Basic bi-annual or annual inspection (depending on particle load) replaces the need for daily, weekly or monthly shutdowns.

The control system of a self-cleaning water filter is an important part of the package. It is designed to be reliable, easy to operate and capable of initiating a flush cycle either by high differential pressure or on a timed basis. Why choose Forsta? Forsta’s control systems provide an alarm function to warn operators of filter malfunction. LCD displays also indicate the number of times the Forsta self-cleaning filter has backwashed.
Controllers are sized to fit the application ranging from large industrial controllers to small battery powered controllers. An industrial controller is capable of flushing up to four self-cleaning water filters in parallel. The small, battery powered controller features a one-year battery life and is ideal for controlling filters located where a power source is not available.
