Meet our solutions providers: insights from control factors filtration

One of Spiral Water’s valued Solutions Providers, Control Factors is based in Auburn, Washington, and operates in the Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska regions. Established in 1984, it has a steadfast dedication to delivering energy-efficient and cost-effective solutions to its customers, and proudly serves as a manufacturer’s representative and distributor of cutting-edge technical products.

Its primary focus is on offering top-quality filtration and separation products as well as heat exchangers, control valves, instrumentation, and other piping-related products. The company has been representing Spiral Water since SWT’s early days in the mid-2010s.

“Our goal is to provide our valued customers with innovative and cost-effective solutions that enhance energy efficiency, improve process quality, and generate substantial cost savings,” says Ryan Gilbert, President, Control Factors Filtration.

“In terms of filtration products, our early was focus on bag filters, but the introduction of self-cleaning filters changed that. Spiral Water’s filters enabled us to offer customers a product designed for high TSS, high solids loading, and self-cleaning filtration,” he notes.

That has opened to the many opportunities for Control Factors to help its customers. “We’ve established a good niche in several markets. For example, one of them is the hydropower industry. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re home to a large percentage of the country’s hydropower production, and Spiral Water’s filters are a great fit for that market,” he says.

Of course, that is only one of the industries and applications for Spiral Water’s products. “We’re providing a value-added engineered product, and that’s why Spiral Water is a great fit for us. Theirs is not a ‘me too’ type of item. We’re here to provide our customers with a solution that makes sense from an energy standpoint, maintenance – you name it – and we strive to consistently exceed expectations with an extensive range of reliable products, expert guidance, and a customer-centric approach focused on ensuring our customers’ success,” Gilbert adds.
