About Oberlin Filter

For over 50 years, Oberlin Filter Company has been guided by the principle: make filters that really work. We have an excellent group of experienced engineers, salesmen, designers, welders, plumbers, electricians, servicemen, and laboratory technicians. We work with our customers to determine the best system for their application, 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.


Established, Accountable & Family Owned

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.
