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® systems are synonymous with water filtration, serving the industrial water markets since 1986. The award-winning Vortisand is a High Efficiency Microsand Filtration System. It is a high capacity media filter that combines cross-flow dynamics with microsand media to achieve submicron filtration performance. This technology allows the unit to operate at filtration rates of up to 5 times greater than those of traditional media filters, while filtering 10-50 times finer.
With over 2,500 installations worldwide, Vortisand has become a leader in high efficiency filtration systems.
