PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
The Airpel Series 200-300 mm fabricated self-cleaning filter ranges extends the self-cleaning filter series by combining multiple Airpel filter elements inside a fabricated housing, perfectly suited for high flow applications.
It blends modern technology with simplicity to provide a versatile method of filtering your process fluids. The filter can be set up for fully or semi-automated or manual operation during which the liquid enters the body and flows through the filter elements from outside to in.
Debris is collected on the outside of the wedge wire or perforated elements. Cleaning takes place without interruption to flow by the rotation of the elements against fixed scraper blades. The debris accumulated during rotation is deposited into the bottom of the filter body from where it can be periodically discharged either manually or automatically via the drain port. Ideal for processes that require continuous flow, the SCF range is also suitable for use on unmanned sites and with hazardous process fluids.
Designed to suit customer’s specification the Fabricated Range of self cleaning filters are available in Carbon Steel and Steel materials for model sizes from 200mm (8”) to 300mm (12”) with suitable working pressures and temperatures of 10 barg and 260°C (dependent on seal materials) respectively. Various levels of automation and element design can be chosen to suit application and installation demands. And benefiting from the same features and options as the rest of the range.
