Low-Pressure Automatic Water Filter Reduces Pump Energy Requirement

April 14, 2010
The new line of low-pressure automatic industrial water filters, features self-cleaning water filters range from 2-30-inches with flow rates range from 15-20,000gpm in a single-filter housing. Until now self-cleaning water filters required over 35psi for backwashing, but the new low-pressure series design provides an ideal energy saving solution in applications with line pressure as low as 15 psi. Equipped with Green-Clean technology, the low-pressure series point-of-suction backwash takes less than 16 seconds and uses less than 1-percent of the total flow per backwash without interrupting the main flow. Filters are available in stainless steel, carbon steel with epoxy coating or duplex stainless. The low-pressure series is ideal for process water, cooling water, wastewater, spray nozzle protection, and other industrial applications.
