Alkota 8-VFS-1 Vacuum Filtration System

8-VFS-1 Vacuum Filtration System

120 Volt, 13.1 Amp, 5 GPM System Flow Capacity, Up to 35 PSI Transfer Pump Pressure

Protecting the environment from wash water runoff and complying with governmental storm drain regulations is simple, economical and effective with the Alkota Vacuum Filtration System (VFS). The VFS is designed to be used as a portable or
stationary treatment system that guarantees results with ease of service while minimizing disposal cost. This automatic and
easy to use zero or controlled discharge system has been uniquely designed to keep businesses operating without expensive filter cost, down time and additional manpower. The VFS can be equipped with a portable wheel kit for specific sight portability or with ease fit into pick-up trucks, vans or onto trailers.


The complete process utilized in the VFS is the first of its kind and the manner in which it operates is unique and proprietary to Alkota. The first two Phases of filtration operate and flow under a vacuum or negative void to enhance flow and extended filter life. The wash water is vacuumed through the pre-filtered 14” round patent pending 4-mesh multi-tier suction head or a specifically designed surface cleaner. The waste stream then enters the Phase I filtration chamber that contains three 100 micron screen filters and eight polymer impregnated micro-fiber filters. This process removes most solids and
99.9% of free oil and petroleum related products. There is no time consuming and expensive
bag filters or baskets to clean.


The VFS Phase II filtration continues with the patent pending Perking® Filtration process trapping any remaining fine solids with three 120 mesh screens that never need removing or replacing. Finally, the effluent enters the Phase III filtration
which is pressurized through high density string wound polishing filters of 50 and 20 micron to a discharge source of choice. The polishing filters are monitored by pressure differential gauges, making it easy to identify when filters need
cleaning or replacement.
