Absolute Filtration

Filtersafe’s unique weave-wire screens provide guaranteed filtration down to 20 microns, which is the required level for protecting membranes.


Our automatic, self-cleaning solution eliminates the need for human intervention, ensuring a clean screen with minimal pressure drop and providing significant OPEX savings.

Automatic Trigger

The filter traps particles, creating a layer on the screen. Sensors monitor pressure differences, triggering automatic self-cleaning when a pre-set threshold is met.

Particle Removal

Filtersafe’s smartweave screen removes particles that can harm the RO membrane. With 100% screen cleaning in every cycle, the filter prevents bacterial growth and biofouling downstream.

Reliable Filters

The dependable filter choice with near-zero maintenance filter options.

Real Energy Savings

Lower operating pressure capability (down to 1.6 bar) means lower ongoing energy costs.

Modular Design

Horizontal and vertical installation options that can to fit your configuration.

High Flow/Small

Just one unit can filter up to 5,000 m3/hr, while taking up minimal space.

Superior Protection

Our first-class filtration protects your system from unplanned maintenance and, when relevant, reduces the amount of secondary treatment required

Global Presence

With manufacturing facilities, offices, and support personnel located across the globe, we’re there when you need us.

"Bloom Agro chose Filtersafe for their unique filtration technologies, that quite simply, allows their filters to work reliably and effectively in situations where other filters have not been able to. We endorse Filtersafe filters for use in applications where reliability and durability are important."

"Filtersafe dramatically reduced our problems. Our previous filtration system couldn’t cope with our source water. We work with treated wastewater that was stored in a reservoir and has a lot of red worms and their eggs in it, which creates a goo that mucked up the filtration system and prevented the filters from working properly. The filters would have to be stopped and manually cleaned at least 5-6 times a season. In the 2 years since the Filtersafe filter replaced the previous filtration system, we haven’t had to open it to clean it even once. The Filtersafe filter saves us a tremendous amount of man-hours. Even downstream, where we have more filtration systems, of the previous kind, we previously had to stop and clean them 3 times a week. Now we only have to clean them once a month."
Orr Cohen
Water Manager, Kibbutz Yehi'am Farm
"Filtersafe auto strainers have been installed in the Sharqiyah Desalination Plant in Oman for UF protection since 2019. The reason for choosing Filtersafe product is due to its compactness and horizontal configuration which is much easier to maintain and service. The product is also equipped with its patented technology which has proven reliable and performs efficiently to the expectation and demands of the plant."

"APT Water is very proud to be partnered with Filtersafe Automatic Screen Filtration to work on projects such as the one at Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Throughout the last year, the water quality varied significantly in the tidal creek that also experienced cyclone conditions resulting in very high total suspended solids. Evidence that the Filtersafe Everclear cleaning system is a market-leading design."
Andrew Dean
Director, APT
"After working with Filtersafe since 2018, we can say that we are quite satisfied with the filter quality and performance thanks to good support on our ECS-Hychlor system."
