Sofi Filtration is committed to engineering for the environment and this reflects in the latest field tests from United States. Together with Encotech our US partner, we have successfully piloted the self-cleaning Sofi Filter at an oil drilling waste water treatment site in West Texas.
Sofi Filtration is happy to share its knowledge on wastewater in the latest issue of Filtration and Separation magazine. The article, details a tunneling wastewater project in Helsinki, Finland, where settling tanks did not provide sufficient total suspended solids reduction. In addition, the use of coagulants and flocculants to aid settling was not working, so Sofi Filtration was brought in and used its self-cleaning Sofi Filter to solve the problem.
"We are proud that our solution could be successfully implemented. The Sofi Filter system is fully automated to operate only when the settling tanks reach a certain level. It requires no chemicals or frequent bag-filter changes and no routine operator attention", said Ville Hakala, Sofi Filtration CEO. These operating features gave the construction company the freedom to focus on the tunneling work and not be distracted by water treatment.
We’ve also made a video about the case and you can watch it here.
