Industrial Water

High performance filter solutions.

Solve water filtration challenges in industrial environments

Water filtration challenges can wreak havoc to industrial systems. Porex provides high-performance solutions including tubular membrane filters, underdrain support plates and standard filter housings for industrial water filtration, industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater applications.

Specifically designed for industrial environments, POREX® solutions include:

  • Tough, durable membrane tubes in both micro and ultrafiltration options for use in high solids, abrasive and harsh chemical environments.
  • Support for sand and multimedia filters with underdrain plates that have backwashable capabilities and long life
  • Standard filters and housings for applications such as agricultural sprayers, pressure washers, floor scrubbers and pre-filters, cooling tower water, and marine water filtration.

Tubular Membrane Filtration (TMF)

Filter industrial wastewater with tubular membrane filters

For micro and ultrafiltration of industrial wastewater, our POREX® tubular membrane filters (TMF) are designed to fit new and existing tubular membrane systems. During operation, a fluid - such as chemically pre-treated wastewater - flows through the cross-flow membrane tubes at high velocity, sufficient to maintain turbulent flow. 

Best used for industries including electroplating, microchip manufacturing and zero liquid discharge systems, our tubular membrane filters:

  • Fit new and current tubular membrane installations
  • Are highly durable - Strong membrane-to-tube bond ensures long service life, and tough membrane withstands sharp particles and strong cleaning regimens.
  • Enhance wastewater system performance with backwashable capability
  • Multiple configuration options to meet low to high flow requirements

Underdrain Plates

underdrain plates details

Improve bed regeneration and extend system life of filtration systems

Developed to support sand and multimedia filtration beds in municipal, industrial, and residential water treatment processes, POREX® underdrain plates function like a "false floor" allowing for maximum, uniform water flow-through in either direction without loss of filtering media. This enables automatic backwashing of the filtration system for improved bed regeneration and long system life. Underdrain plates can be customized for cutting, welding and hole-drilling and are UV resistant.

Offering durability, efficiency, and easy installation to water filter treatment systems, our underdrain plates:

  • Retain filtering media–Underdrain plates act as a “false floor” to support media and allow for flow and backwash with uniform distribution of backflush.
  • Increase backwash efficiency through uniform distribution of backflush
  • Safe for drinking water applications – NSF-61 material is certified safe for drinking water applications.
