Zero Gravity Filters offers four extremely unique and effective separation / filtration technologies to meet the needs of several industries.

  • Maggie – Maggie is a fully automatic, in-line, high intensity, high efficiency, self-cleaning, patented magnetic separator.  Maggie is the best available technology for separating magnetic contaminants from process fluids.
  • Spring Filter – The ZGF Spring Filter is a 316 stainless-steel coil wound with a variable pitch that allows the filter element to open evenly from top to bottom ensuring that all contaminants are completely removed from the filter element with each backwash.  The “nidges” provide an absolute gap to ensure consistent and reliable particle capture. The Spring Filter element is utilized in the EZ Clean family of automatic filtration systems.
  • Tornado – The Tornado is high “G”-force, centrifugal separator.  The Tornado is a simple but extremely innovative device.  The Tornado has no moving parts and no media.  Tornado effectively removes particles without any regular maintenance.  
  • MEC – The MEC is the only fully automatic, permanent media, in-line filter that combines magnetic and barrier filtration in a single system.

ZGF technology can be installed in a variety of processes and applications.

To get a better understanding on where ZGF technology can provide value in your industry and / or application, click on Process Diagram. You can download up to 18 different process diagrams that show you where a ZGF technology can be implemented in a specific process and the benefits it provides.

ZGF Maggie, Spring Filter & Tornado technologies meet all purchasing and performance criteria by effectively and efficiently capturing and removing the contaminants from process fluids and process / cooling water.

ZGF technology will provide value because it is:

  • fully automatic
  • consistent & reliable
  • non-disposable
  • energy efficient - utilizing a minimal amount of electricity and air during purge/backwash
  • able to remove ferrous particles down to 1 micron and non-ferrous particles down to 20 micron
  • able to provide value throughout the mill and help optimize each process by effective and efficient contaminant capture and removal
