Old filters this time, not brand new.  We have had two Phoenix Filters back from a steel works in South Wales for refurbishment. The first one dated from 2001, and the one pictured here is from 2010.  Both have been refurbished with some new parts and a bit of a clean up.


The controls were still working and all re-used, except for the label.


We think it's a good advert for the Phoenix Filter, that can survive over twenty years in service, and then go on for another twenty.

Another new Phoenix.  This one a C type, with its external valve, and fitted with 50 micron elements.  This is going to a customer in the North, to join at least one Phoenix in an industrial setting.

23 February 2023

Two new Phoenix units, both type C, with 50 micron elements fitted. These filters are fitted with a pneumatic ball valve on the backwash line, as site pressure can get very high.These two are going to a good customer in the North West. They have multiple Phoenix units on site already, all now made to the same specification so they have common spares.


Please excuse the poor photo. The two filters were bolted together and then bolted to a pallet for despatch. This is taken from my phone.

This unit is off to the Scottish Highlands where it will be filtering the make up water to a cooling tower at a distillery.


26 December 2013

We are in the new building, but still have a lot of work to do. The (unfinished) front:-

Inside there is a lot of storage going up, and a lot of stock being carefully put away. We are not trading from the new building until 02 Jan 2014 so we have a lot of work to do.


We have a new filter in build with one of our subcontractors. Photos to follow.


04 December 2013

Not a great deal to report.  The new building is being wired and plumbed so hasn't changed a great deal, although one of the big doors is off and a new steel post has been fitted.

This is the view from one of the mezzanine flors. The handrails are all recycled.
