Side Stream Filtration Ensures Cleanliness of Closed Loop Water Circuits

Amazon Filters is a leading manufacturer of permanent Side Stream Filtration systems for initial clean-up and ongoing maintenance of closed loop water supplies to large buildings, airport / rail infrastructure and sporting / entertainment arena.

Once installed, the Side Stream Filtration system removes the contaminants from closed loop water systems – not only suspended solids but also the chemically treated biomass – and the problems that go with them. If left within the system these contaminants lead to poor temperature control within the building, greater maintenance issues and unsatisfied users of the building.

The UK Building Services Research and Information Association** recommends a permanent Side Stream filtration system as a key resource for initial clean-up and ongoing maintenance of water pipework systems.

An Amazon Filters Side Stream Filtration system is typically installed in the Plant Room of a building. A typical Amazon Filters Side Stream Filtration consists of an industrial style filter housing and SupaSpun II depth cartridge filters – one of the very few products to be accredited by the UK Water Industry for use in this specific application. Each Side Stream Filtration system is designed to treat 5-15% of the mains water circuit flow in a closed loop water circuit.

For the most effective filtration, Amazon Filters recommends absolute rated SupaSpun II cartridge filters as part of a side stream filtration system. These filters are available in a range of micron ratings, so as the re-circulating water becomes cleaner, a finer filter can then be installed to remove ever-smaller contaminants.
