Tonka Equipment Company has been an innovative designer and manufacturer of potable water treatment equipment since 1956. The company originated as the filter division of a well drilling company located near Lake Minnetonka just west of Minneapolis. Tonka subsequently became an independent, privately owned entity; relocated to expanded facilities in a western suburb of Minneapolis; and developed to become a leading water treatment equipment manufacturer with a broad and diverse product line. Tonka can design and manufacture a treatment system for any potable water application, whether ground water or surface water. With our team of experienced mechanical, civil and chemical engineers we custom design each of our products to meet the specific requirements of each application and the exacting US EPA water quality standards. Tonka is a knowledge based, solution-oriented company. We’ve led the way with innovative technology such as Simul-Wash™, a unique filter backwash system that extends the life of filter media, conserves backwash water, and improves filter performance. Tonka is committed to staying abreast of current technology and finding new solutions to water quality problems.
