Filtration and beyond
Spiral Water Technologies develops and markets high performance products for advanced high solids filtration and concentration applications. Sophisticated in engineering yet elegantly simple to use, these products utilize our patented technology to deliver superior results while reducing CapEx and OpEx to deliver low Total Lifecycle Cost.
Modular and scalable, our filters can be used as standalone products or to complement existing filtration technologies for high TSS filtration and solids concentration, backwash filtration, or prefiltration for existing automatic filters or smaller skid systems. In addition to filtration, our products are ideal for solids separation in industrial processes as well as food & beverage processing where they can eliminate the need for large and expensive equipment and maximize the recovery of valuable products.
Today, Spiral Water products are delivering breakthrough performance in some of today’s most demanding applications, including water reuse and recovery; pre-filtration for DAF, MBR and RO/UF; industrial water filtration; and concentration of valuable or resalable product from non-hazardous wastewater.
From coast to coast…
Spiral Water was founded in 2012 with a vision to develop a revolutionary automatic self-cleaning filter specifically designed to address the issue of high and variable suspended solids removal across multiple industries. Originally based in the San Francisco Bay area of California, USA, Spiral Water introduced its initial product in 2015.
In 2018, the company was restructured with the goal of refining its existing products and technology and developing the next generation of its revolutionary filters. As a result, its operations were consolidated at a new global headquarters in Middlesex, New Jersey, USA, which features a world class laboratory for research & development, engineering and product testing, as well as state-of-the-art facilities for manufacturing and product assembly.
…to global connections
Spiral Water has an established a global presence as a member of the prestigious Institut de la Filtration et des Techniques Séparatives (IFTS – International Filter Testing Services), an independently regulated, ISO 17025 accredited, laboratory and research center and the world’s leading organization dedicated to solid-liquid separation. Based in the Aquitaine region of France, its operations include the Roger Ben Aïm Test Center, a renowned research and experimentation station that assesses the behavior of pilots and industrial equipment on real waters with different characteristics.
Through this affiliation, Spiral Water works hand-in-hand with global filtration manufacturers as well as other water systems and filter manufacturing firms as marketing and commercialization partners to apply its technology to new applications and help solve challenges that have plagued the water industry for decades.
