Gravity Flow Systems has been in the business of supplying Wedgewater™ Filter products for over 40 years. It started with the simple idea of using gravity and other natural forces to separate solids from liquids. Originally known as Hendricks Fluid Systems, the company developed the Gravity
Dewatering Filter Bed System in the early 1970’s, using stainless-steel wedgewire for sludge dewatering and drying.
The company name was eventually changed to Gravity Flow Systems, Inc. In 1978, we developed the high strength polyurethane media, currently known as the Wedgewater™ Filter Bed System, that is both structurally sound and more cost effective.
In the 1990’s, Gravity Flow Systems, Inc. was purchased by Aqua Care Systems, Inc. The assets of Gravity Flow Systems, Inc. were purchased by the current owners in September of 2000, and the name was changed to Gravity Flow Systems Southwest, Inc. In 2019 the company was moved to its current location in Leadville, Colorado and our manufacturing facilities are located in Denver.
We have the ability to provide order management, technical assistance, CAD design, and all other aspects necessary to supply the highest quality products, which the company has long been known for. We routinely work hand-in-hand with owners and engineers to provide the highest quality, best-performing equipment installations. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products with innovative thinking applied to real-world applications. At Gravity Flow Systems Southwest, owner satisfaction is the highest priority.
