For over 25 years, FILTEC has committed to making water safer: safer for drinking; safer for manufacturing; safer to put back into our environment. With a growing recognition of water purity, public safety and the obligation to care for what we return into our environment, industrial and municipal customers in both New Zealand and Australia are working more closely with water treatment, re-use and conservation specialists like FILTEC.

FILTEC — a New Zealand headquartered design, construction, service and water treatment optimisation company — has been operating in Victoria for four years and recently acquired Practical Filtration Solutions (PFS), a Melbourne based water treatment design, installation and servicing specialist of a variety of water filtration systems.

The two companies, operating as FILTEC International, have already delivered a number of key projects in the industrial and municipal water treatment sectors, leveraging FILTEC’s design and fabrication capability with PFS’ local presence and experience.

These include a zero discharge, high salinity, wastewater recycle project for a Victorian feedstock company, a containerised reverse osmosis drinking water treatment plant for a Queensland country town and a containerised mine water treatment plant for a Queensland coal company.

FILTEC has previously designed and built municipal water treatment plants for Victorian regional water authorities including Wannon Water, Central Highlands Water and North East Water.

They are currently providing ultra-violet light based wastewater disinfection systems for Coliban Water and TasWater, utilising a long-term technology partnership with Trojan Technologies.

FILTEC International is also partnering with Veolia Environmental to deliver an iconic PFAS/PFOS removal and water recycling solution to multiple training sites around Victoria.

If you need water that is safer for drinking, safer for manufacturing and safer to put back into our environment, please don’t hesitate to contact FILTEC International or visit us at WIOA Bendigo in September, stand 115 and 134.
