At WesTech, we understand the crucial role municipal water treatment plays in our everyday lives. We supply an array of water treatment solutions for municipalities across the globe.
WesTech offers a wide variety of equipment for groundwater treatment for potable use.

Surface Water Treatment
WesTech also offers a holistic approach to surface water treatment for potable use. Depending upon the raw water quality, flow rate, and operational preferences, WesTech can provide conventional treatment systems, combination treatment units, package plants, high-rate processes, or even customized solutions.
With the iconic General Filter and Microfloc brands under the WesTech umbrella, WesTech has the breadth of experience and process capability to provide comprehensive solutions for all water treatment applications, including: Aeration, Flocculation and Clarification, Filtration, Thickening, and Backwash Recovery.
General Filter was founded in 1935 in Ames, Iowa. It had a long tradition of innovation, beginning with the invention of the ATOMERATOR™ system – an innovative way of introducing oxygen into a process stream without breaking system pressure. Over time, General Filter became established as an industry standard for all varieties of manufactured water treatment equipment, including pressure filters, clarifiers, and aerators.
Microfloc was founded in 1961 and made its mark on the industry with several innovative water treatment methods, including the mixed media filter bed, the first commercially viable tube settler, the upflow Adsorption Clarifier® system, and a method for electronic control of coagulation chemical addition. Microfloc continued in the tradition of innovation with the Trident® HS system, which remains the most sophisticated package treatment system on the market.
Municipal Water Solutions
Groundwater is an indispensable water source for communities worldwide. However, it can present challenges for municipalities that must remove the minerals and gasses that it often accumulates. Our aeration systems provide effective and low-cost solutions that oxidize iron and manganese for efficient removal.
Water from filter backwash systems can be an additional source of treated water that boosts your plant’s overall water production. WesTech provides clarification systems for recovering this valuable water resource.
With our extensive lineup of filtration systems, we can help you select the filtration solution that fits your available footprint and contains the internal configurations that make the most of your water treatment processes.
WesTech’s flocculation and clarification solutions offer the processes that your source waters require for efficient treatment. Whether your challenges include moderate-to-high turbidity, organics, or both, we have the expertise and processes you need.
Our expertly sized, cost-effective thickening systems can help you minimize the volume of waste solids. WesTech’s premium solutions include options that range from conventional gravity thickeners to high-rate thickener clarifiers.
