During the 1990's SWS Filtration has continued to offer the benefit of its experience installing sub-sand sea water intakes for a wide range of Government, University and private projects. Clients have included Blue Circle Industries, Fisons, Unilever, Biwater, National Coal Board, Post Office, British Antarctic Survey, Sea Life Centres, and the Ministry of Agriculture. 

Since no two situations can ever be identical, SWS treats each and every enquiry individually. The basic principles remain the same although we continually seek to expand our range of techniques using new materials as they become available.
