Temporary Filtration Prevents Plant Shutdown


An industrial plant needed a temporary filtration system installed to keep the operation online while aging carbon units were replaced. The system would need to remove all TSS and chlorine from the clean water coming into the plant. To side-step the threat of a shut down, which would cost millions of dollars per day, the chemical plant would need equipment and support services that were tested, reliable, and proven to perform well.


Based on expressed knowledge of the plant’s needs with examples of similar successful job completions, Rain for Rent was selected to provide a turnkey temporary filtration system with duel filtration units, a bag filter and a carbon vessel. Both units were configured with bypass capabilities along with a back flushing line and drain line. To avoid damaging the plants filtration units, pressure had to be carefully held within certain parameters that varied as the system progressed.


  • The project’s success protected the plant from equipment failure which would have resulted in a shut down and cost the plant millions of dollars in lost production and revenue.
  • Thoughtful consideration was given to each piece and style of equipment to ensure there were no failures.
  • The project was completed within a small space of 10’x30’ which allowed room for the walls of the building to be removed, necessary for removing the three old carbon vessels and bringing in the new units.
  • All Rain for Rent crew members completed site orientation training and passed a final safety exam before being granted access to the site.


The operations team at the chemical plant was very pleased and shared that they will be using Rain for Rent’s products and services again in the future. Further feedback from the plant stated that “(The Rain for Rent) team has provided ours with yet another fine product and service. Your team represented your company with the utmost professionalism and experience. The customer service you’ve provided our team is top notch.”
