The History of Industrial Filtration

We here at Advanced Filtration like to think of ourselves as veterans of the field--but the field itself goes back... way, way back. In fact, industrial water filtration, surprisingly, is not a new concept. It actually goes back 7,000 years, to one of the most advanced ancient civilizations at the time. And while we salute the Ancient Egyptians for their ingenuity, 21st Century filtration methods are probably a bit more sanitary and secure. In this article, we're going to take a look at the history of industrial filtration, and see how it has advanced and improved over time, to get us to where we are today.   4,000 Years Ago The Ancient Egyptians loved papyrus, the reeds that grew along the banks of the Nile River. They wove them into baskets, and also water filters. They also made porous clay pots to filter water as the world’s first ceramic filters around 2,000 BCE. 2,700 Years Ago Ancient Hindu cultures in India describe using rocks, sand, and gravel to filter water. Surprisingly, these media also tend to work today as well. 2,500 Years Ago Greek physician Hippocrates (who invented the Hippocratic Oath) invented a sleeve that used cloth to filter out impurities…
