Vortisand by Neptune Benson (formerly Sonitec) is an industry leader in submicron sand filtration. Utilizing the innovative Vortisand technology, Vortisand filters are high performance automatic backwashable microsand filters which filter down to the submicron level. Vortisand filters excel within the pharmaceutical, petroleum refining, biotechnology, pulp & paper, automotive and general HVAC industries. The VORTISAND® filtration technology: provides sub micron filtration as low as 0.2 micron removal and our line of Membrane separation products: are used for many types of aqueous applications. The Vortisand® high-efficiency water filtration systems for the removal of suspended solids down to sub-micron range are easily installed and fully automatic. The very compact filters ensure a filtration that is 10 to 20 times finer than traditional sand filters. The performance of Vortisand® filters is due to a unique concept which ingeniously combines centrifugal separation and sand filtration.


VORTISAND - In-line serie

Full flow or process applications (pre ro, water reuse, etc). Our 'A' Serie is used for In-line applications to ensure a continuous or intermittent flow – the flow can be maintained during backwash operation. When one vessel is in backwwash mode the remaining vessels ensure the selected flow. VORTISAND® filers are available in a variety of materials and components depending on each application requirements. Sonitec manufactures customized ...

Model AWT Serie - Side Stream

The most suitable VORTISAND® system will be chosen according to the tonnage of the refrigeration system, the circulation flow and/or the volume of water in the system. Other parameters such as temperature and maximum inlet pressure will also be considered.
