Evoqua-Neptune Benson acquires VAF Filtration Systems

US-based Evoqua Water Technologies and its recently acquired Neptune Benson business have acquired VAF Filtration Systems, a screen filtration manufacturer based in Arvada, Colorado.

VAF, founded in 1985, engineers and manufactures automatic self-cleaning water filters and control valves for a variety of industrial and municipal water applications.

Markets include industrial water reuse, water and wastewater, cooling towers, seawater, river intake water, well water, groundwater re-injection, irrigation, and more.

VAF’s premier product, the V-Series, is a self-cleaning screen filter capable of removing suspended solids from 1500 to 10 microns (one millionth of a metre).

The acquisition pairs VAF’s self-cleaning, screen filtration systems with Neptune Benson’s media-based filters including the award winning Defender regenerative media filters, Vortisand cross-flow microsand filters, and Legacy sand filters.

“This acquisition expands Neptune’s presence in industrial markets and complements our existing filtration product lines, allowing us to offer a media-free filter in applications that may not need the Defender or Vortisand’s level of filtration,” said Ken Rodi, president of Evoqua’s Neptune Benson unit.
