Pentair designs and manufactures advanced technologies for the high performance separation of liquids, solids and gases. These technologies are used to help facilitate balanced systems that are highly stable, reliable and robust, thereby increasing throughput, reducing operating cost and minimizing waste. We help solve the most critical separation and extraction issues for the gas, refining, produced water, chemical and power generation industries.
Our S.T.A.R. Labs (Scientific Testing, Analysis and Research Laboratories) are staffed with Ph.D. scientists who develop innovative technologies for advanced separation applications.
We are made up of people who share the same vision, values and commitment to working with our client's as a partner. Just as the needs of our client's and their challenges change, so do the solutions. We take pride in the process of listening, analyzing and executing solutions that best fit our client's needs; understanding precedes solutions.
