Evoqua Water Technologies and its Neptune Benson business acquired VAF Filtration Systems, an Arvada, Colo.-based manufacturer of automatic self-cleaning water filters and control valves for industrial water applications.

VAF’s markets include industrial water reuse, cooling towers and wastewater as well as municipal waters. The deal combines VAF’s self-cleaning screen filtration systems with Neptune Benson’s media-based filters and boosts Neptune Benson’s and Evoqua’s product offerings in industrial markets. The companies can now offer filtration solutions ranging from 1,500 microns down to submicron filtration.
