Founded in 1985, VAF engineers and manufactures automatic self-cleaning water filters and control valves for a range of industrial and municipal water applications. Markets include industrial water reuse, water and wastewater, cooling towers, seawater, river intake water, well water, groundwater re-injection and irrigation.

“We are pleased to welcome VAF to the Neptune Benson and Evoqua family,” said Ken Rodi, president of Evoqua’s Neptune Benson unit. “This acquisition expands Neptune’s presence in industrial markets and complements our existing filtration product lines; allowing us to offer a media-free filter in applications that may not need the Defender or Vortisand’s level of filtration.”
 
“We are enthusiastic to join the Neptune/Evoqua team,” said Glenn Dobbs, president of VAF. “This acquisition provides VAF Filtration additional resources, products and an increased presence worldwide to better support our diverse market channels.”
