Oberlin Filter Company is been guided by one principle: make filters that really work. Our excellent group of experienced engineers, salesmen, designers, welders, plumbers, electricians, servicemen, and laboratory technicians work with our customers to determine the best system for their application. We build it ourselves, help start it and provide support throughout its lifetime. There are Oberlin filters that have been operating continuously for over 40 years.
We are a family owned and operated business. Three generations of our family have worked hard to build filters and treatment systems that are dependable, reliable and get the job done. Our founder, Wayne Oberlin, started Oberlin Filter by making one filter at a time. His son, Tom Oberlin, developed and expanded our filtration technology making Oberlin Filter a global leader in liquid solid separation. This attention to detail and tenacity of spirit has enabled Oberlin Filter to grow into an international company that still calls Waukesha, WI home.
We are an engineering company. Our engineers are your project managers and are responsible to you for the filter’s satisfactory operation. They supervise your order from initial design stage, through production and startup. They are always available for support.
We have a global presence. We have manufacturing plants in England and Germany that provide sales, design, manufacturing and service support throughout Europe. We have service agents placed throughout the world. There are Oberlin pressure filters operating in over 30 countries throughout the world.
We are active in four major markets: Metal Working Fluids for grinding and machining, Food applications primarily in hot frying oil and specialty oils, Chemical Separations and Industrial Water Treatment. Industrial water treatment covers a wide range of applications with almost all of them unique to the client. We enjoy strong working relationships with GE and their many divisions, Veoliawater, DuPont, and a major semi-conductor manufacturer in their silicon wafer cutting processes.
