Conventional filters need to have their filter elements replaced or cleaned at regular intervals for sustained operation. Self-Cleaning Filters as the name suggests is a type of filter or strainer that overcomes this limitation by cleaning the elements in place without downtime.
Sungov’s Self-Cleaning Filters are based on the online automatic backwash or backflushing technology. In other words, the filtration cycle and the cleaning cycle happen simultaneously without interrupting flow. Industrial filtration of process water, cooling water, seawater intake systems are typical examples where Self-Cleaning Filters are used. The use case for these filters become even more convincing when the inlet debris is significant and frequent shutdown of conventional filter for cleaning reduces operational efficiency.
A differential pressure transmitter, an energy efficient geared motor, a local control system, and a backflushing mechanism precision machined to close tolerances, together form a typical Self-Cleaning Filter system.
Sungov has both pre-engineered and engineered-to-order options for customers to choose from. Contact us today for your requirements.
