Premier Filtration


Premier Filtration has over 30 years experience in filtration of all liquids for industry, from perfumes, honey, paper white water, oils, river / lake waters and a wide range of other applications.

Conservation of water and reduction of effluent have become paramount to industry survival. Filtration of process liquids by the correct means ensures minimum involvement by personnel, and with correct filter sizing caters for process changes. We supply a range of products to suit small applications and large, from small in-line filters with mesh or cartridge elements, to larger backwashing filters for factory wide applications.

Spin-Clean Filters

Spin-Clean Filters - Water Purification
SpinClean™ is a self-cleaning depth filter system, designed to remove contaminants such as fibres, grit, sand and algae from water under pressures of 1-10 barg. SpinClean™ units have a compact design whilst providing large surface areas and high dirt holding capacities. Original Modular design provides for flow volumes from 7m3/h to 2000m3/h with filtration down to a nominal 15µm. New SuperFlow product is available for flows in excess of 2000m3/h.

The Spin Clean filtration system is a new & unique concept which uses micro-grooved disc technology to provide highly efficient depth filtration and particle retention.

Backwash effectiveness is ensured by the total separation of every individual disc. Internal flushing nozzles create a wash- through action to release trapped particles, and a spinning action of the discs assists the total removal of all solids.

High liquid flows are achieved by the exceptionally high surface area of the media in each module. Systems range in size from single units, multiple units, and up to 42 modules configured in a "Star" construction. 

  • compact modular construction offers exceptionally high flow rates in limited space conditions
  • layered micro-grooved discs provide combined surface & depth filtration from 5 to 400 microns 
  • disc separation during backwash, combined with centrifugal spin action, ensures particle release
  • designed for rugged applications, assuring long life for components & filtration media
  • exceptionally low rates of backwash flow (optimising water or water/air) ensuring low demand upon later effluent treatment
  • flow capacities from 3 to 450m3/hour as standard. Larger flows can be accommodated

Hi Flo

Unique Multi-Media Concept

A single Hi-Flo body can accommodate any one of 6 different filter elements of standard design. This gives unprecedented flexibility & versatility to the user, where previously a media-change often involved a complete filter body change. The Hi-Flo filter can be supplied with wound cartidges, wedge wire, mesh on perf, pleated elements, polyester sleeves and Topmesh, enabling the filter to be adapted to many applications. 

Hi-Flo filters are primarily designed to accommodate the unique Topmesh stainless-steel filtration element, with its innovative diffusion-bonded construction on a spiral support structure.
  • All 316 stainless steel construction rated to 35 Bar pressure (50 Bar also available)
  • Smooth internals for high flow rates
  • Space-conscious design, easy to manifold 
  • Horizontal or vertical mounting
  • Option of 3 body lengths that can be supplied in duplex or triplex alternatives 
  • O-ring and gasket seals in choice of materials for agressive duties up to 95 degrees C  
  • Easy-open cap - no tools required
  • Choice of connections and orientation. RJT, BSP, NPT, and flanges are all readily available.
