Low pressure automatic filters

Functionning of the automatic filters for low pressure networks (AS Series) :

Filtration. Filtration is achieved through a cylindrical screen. As soon as the filter screen is clogged, a pressure switch detects the pressure difference between inlet and outlet and starts the cleaning cycle.

Cleaning. Cleaning is performed by means of a water spraying arm. Clean water from filter outlet is pressurized with a centrifugal pump and sent to the water spraying arm. A complete rotation of the water spraying arm is achieved, so that the whole surface is cleaned in one cleaning cycle.

Drain. A the end of the cleaning cycle, a solenoid valve is opened and the suspended solids are drained out of the filter.
