The SILEXA™ Range

Continual development by our research and development team has enabled our products to evolve into some of the most advanced filtration materials available.

Bowman's filter products can be tailored to suit customers' requirements using either carbon, polypropylene and clay or our superior SILEXA™ silica based filtration media. A combination of products can be used in cases where discharged effluents and emissions require pre-treatment before passing through the main filtration material.

We can also manufacture and develop bespoke filter housing receptacles to contain our bagged or bulk media for various particulate, vapour/air and water filtration solutions.

Making it our way

At Bowman we not only research, design and develop new uses and applications for filtration equipment, we also manufacture our products on site.

This allows us complete control over the production process and stock control. Our dedicated team are skilled and flexible enough to change production techniques quickly and efficiently so that productivity is maximised and delivery dates minimised.

We always carry huge quantities of raw materials allowing us to react quickly to market demands. As the largest supplier of carbon filters for oil water separators in the UK, we produce more filters than the combined sales of some of our ‘original equipment’ competitors and have 100's of satisfied customers.

Our newly developed SILEXA™ Sorb material is a revolution in filtration and spill control technology that promises to bring new cost effective alternatives to traditional media and keep Bowman at the cutting edge for all of your industrial requirements.
