Filtration is the process of passing a fluid through a porous material, causing particles that contaminate the fluid to become trapped in the material. This results in a cleaner fluid. Industrial fluids are filtered to remove metallic particles created by the manufacturing process. Removing the particles will extend the useful life of the fluid, and reduce the cost of the manufacturing process.

Crystal Filtration was established in 1986 with a single goal: to provide advanced media filtration solutions to reduce costs and improve quality. For over three decades, we’ve helped countless companies across a broad range of industries lower manufacturing expenses and produce better products. 

Believe it or not, we started out with a single product. We spent our first year developing an improved filter paper for metalworking coolants used in the manufacturing of 2-piece aluminum cans. After testing over 50 different formulations, we developed a product that reduced filter media costs from $1,500,000 to $750,000 within a year.

As we’ve expanded our product line, we’ve painstakingly developed each and every product with the aim of providing maximum value for our clients. From start to finish, we employ a scientific approach to fully understand the client’s manufacturing process, environment, and overall needs. Our qualified staff visit your facility, evaluate your process and analyze your fluids. With an in-depth understanding of the situation, we then craft solutions tailored to their specific goals. 

Continuing technical field support is an essential part of our business model. The service we provide can improve your process today, tomorrow and for years to come.

Today, we offer a full suite of filtration services. In recent years, we’ve branched into the food service, snack, beer, wine, and other beverage industries with our Filsorb and Food Analyzer brands. Our Waste Free recycling facility enables manufacturers to go landfill-free by recycling their filters. 


In 2003, Crystal Filtration was asked by General Motors to help GM obtain the country’s first landfill-free plant. The plant chosen was General Motors Flint Engine South, which utilizes filters supplied by Crystal Filtration to clean and process coolant liquids used in its manufacturing operations. After two years, GM Flint Engine South became the first landfill-free automotive facility in North America.

Shortly thereafter, Crystal Filtration provided the same services to GM’s Ypsilanti Transmission Operations (which has since been closed) and Toledo Transmission Operations, which were the second and third GM plants to achieve their landfill-free status. Crystal Filtration also assisted General Motors in helping the company achieve landfill-free status in plants outside the Detroit area.

General Motors asked Crystal Filtration to open a Detroit facility to assist other automotive facilities in becoming landfill-free. To meet its customers’ needs in the automotive industry, Crystal Filtration purchased a 45,000 square foot building in Detroit and all necessary equipment to open a new company, Waste-Free, LLC, which has since been relocated to Warren, Michigan. The new Waste Free, LLC facility currently receives rolls of dirty filter media from a variety of engine and transmission facilities within the Big Three. Rolls of filter media have successfully been tested in preparation to enable more facilities in becoming landfill-free.
