Filtration & Specialty Media

Filtration systems can treat the pumped-out water before it is released and having proper filtration on a jobsite can reduce or eliminate turbidity and VOCs so contractors can remain compliant with environmental regulations. United Rentals experts have many years of experience with renting, installing and operating filtration systems to fit your filtration requirements. We rent carbon filter systems, bag filter systems, chemical vapor scrubbers, media filters, trailer-mounted filter pots and water treatment trailers.


What is the best water filtration system?

  • Different industries and project requirements need different filtration systems, and one size does not fit all. It’s best to research the types of filtration solutions such as reverse osmosis, ceramic filtering, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, water recycling, coarse filtration, and UV light, then contact United Rentals to find the right system and size for your filtration requirements.

What is industrial filtration?

  • Industrial filtration is the process of removing suspended particles from a liquid, and manufacturing and industrial processes work to filter out these particle contaminants to keep the site systems working properly. Filtration systems can be used for construction runoff or groundwater,  oil refinery and industrial plant waste. They also come in varying types of systems and sizes. For example, United Rentals’ carbon filter systems work to remove contaminants from vapor waste and process streams. Bag filters utilize coarse filtration to eliminate particles from process fluids or urban runoff.

Do water filters kill bacteria?

  • Water filters do not typically kill bacteria, and it’s important to continually monitor and service your water filtration systems to prevent the growth of bacteria.
