Updated: Jan 13, 2021

Roberts Filter Group has come a long way within the water industry since its founding in 1889.

The earliest patent paper still in possession is dated 1889 and made out to C.V. Roberts for a water filter. Since then, Roberts has developed a wide variety of processes and technological solutions to the most demanding treatment challenges; dissolved air flotation, plate settlers, sludge treatment, gravity filtration, pressure filters, and package plants. Roberts' wide range of solutions can be adapted to solve whatever the challenge.
