VLF: Vertical Leaf Filter

Non-membrane wastewater filtration for particles < 1 micron

The GEE Vertical Leaf Filter (VLF) System is ideal as a final step water polishing system to filter out particles smaller than one micron.

The VLF produces membrane quality water without the hassle of membranes. Perfect for use after the GEE EOX wastewater treatment, the VLF is an unmanned, fully automated, turnkey package.

The system is a non-membrane, non-plugging, non-fouling technology. The system continuously adds filter aid, creating a new filter surface and eliminating plugging. The VLF’s robust design means it has lower consumables, longer lifespan and lower operating costs than membrane technologies.

Sectors & Applications

Problems solved

The Science behind the VLF

The never-ending problem with membrane-based water filtration systems is that they constantly plug and foul. It takes manpower, toxic chemicals and downtime to maintain them. The VLF from GEE removes the membrane downtime problem entirely because the system continuously regenerates its filters automatically so performance remains high. The system is designed to remove up to 2% solids. Moreover, the VLF can be run unmanned—saving you operations and maintenance (O&M) costs and consumable expenses.
