For 30-years VAF Filtration Systems has been providing filtration solutions worldwide with a business model built on simplicity, quality and integrity. VAF filters qualify for LEED and ARRA funding, as all materials, manufacturing and assembly are done in the US.

Our flagship product line, the V-Series, are automatic self-cleaning screen filters; used “Wherever Water Flows” and can remove suspended solids from 1,500 to 10 micron. Individual filters and pre-assembled filtration systems are used in applications for pre-filtration of membrane, UV and other micro filtration technologies, as well as applications for industrial water reuse, water and wastewater, cooling towers, seawater, river intake water, well water, groundwater re-injection (Frac water), irrigation and many more.

The standard V-Series filters are competitively priced while manufactured in 316L stainless steel to meet ASME Pressure Vessel Code requirements (ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1 requirements). In addition, the stainless steel filter bodies come with a Lifetime Body Warranty* against leaks. The patented Bidirectional Hydro Dynamic (BHD) drive design DOES NOT require - electric motors, limit switches, gearboxes, hydraulic pistons or any external shaft seals.  The cleaning cycle of each filter takes less than 15 seconds and does not interrupt flow or the filtration process.

V-Series Automatic Self-Cleaning Screen Filters

These filters feature a patented state-of-the-art drive mechanism that improves screen-cleaning efficiencies resulting in:
  • 100% screen cleaning with controlled suction nozzle rotation

  • Flush waste less than 1% of total volume.

  • 70% fewer moving parts - less maintenance

  • Competitive prices against carbon steel filters.

  • Individual flow rates from 20gpm (4.5 m3/hr) to 5,600gpm (1,272 m3/hr).

  • Filtration 10 to 1500 micron.
