Forsta Filters Provides Reliable Membrane Pre-Filtration


Raw water characteristics dictate the level of pretreatment required upstream of a membrane. By removing 98-100% of suspended particles above the degree of filtration (screen size), Forsta UF prefiltration will prolong membrane life in a fully automated system – i.e., there is no interruption to system flow during the short backwash cycle.

Forsta’s UF pre-filters work to effectively remove all types of debris including organic fibers, algae, sand, silt, and more from water sources. Forsta UF prefiltration systems are used to protect a variety of UF modules and are always equipped with screens that capture the debris of main concern.

Standard UF pre-filters come in stainless steel 304L. Material upgrades available in 316L, Duplex, Super Duplex and Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) for brackish/brine/seawater applications.
