Canadian industrial filtration equipment manufacturer, Fil-Trek Corporation has received NSF/ANSI 61 accreditation for its vertical and horizontal cartridge filter housings, bag filter housings and strainers.
NSF/ANSI 61 sets stringent criteria for water system components that involve drinking water systems. NSF-61 was developed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), a global independent public health and environmental organisation, and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) which oversees the consensus for developing standards for manufacturing and procedures in the US.
Forty-eight US states and eleven Canadian provinces require that drinking water system components comply with NSF/ANSI 61.
Sarah Pinkerton, marketing manager, said that immediately following the approval of NSF/ANSI 61 certification, Fil-Trek received a large contract for a California municipal water facility along with numerous other requests for quotes. She added that Fil-Trek is one of very few North American filtration equipment manufacturers that has this certification.
