Self Cleaning Filter

Product specification

Self cleaning filter can remove suspended particles from wastewater. In municipal wastewater plants effluent of secondary sedimentation tank can pass through the filter and discharge as a grey water or process water.

Filtration is continuous and there is no need to side filter during washing operation. Due to Bernoulli principle during washing, there is a minimum water waste ( 99% efficiency)

Washing mechanism are as follows:


1: During normal filtration, dirt particles accumulate from top to bottom on the inside of the filter insert according to fluid mechanical laws, when the set time or differential pressure reached the particle drainage valve will open


2: In second phase a after the valve opens the flushing disc moves into the filter sieve without touching it. The outer diameter of the disc is smaller than the inner diameter of the sieve.The flow velocity increases within the gap between flushing disc and strainer. This causes a decrease of pressure between them.  Dirt particles are sucked out of the filter element
