Automatic Backwashing Filters
- Reduces process/system downtime
- Reduces operator exposure
- Reduces maintenance cost
- Reduces labor costs
- Reduces filter element disposal and Replacement cost
- Increases productivity
The list above highlights many reasons why customers are switching from standard filter housing to either our Auto-duplexes or Automatic Backwashing Systems.
Self-cleaning filters represent the ideal situation and provide the most productive and labor free solution. Rosedale Products’ ABW is unique because our patented technology backwashes with the lowest volume of liquid. This is achieved by using normal shop air (propane or nitrogen can also be used) to create the shear velocity needed to effectively clean the filter with only the clean liquid inside each housing.
How It Works
Fluid is introduced through the bottom of the filter housing. It is then forced through a filter element where the contaminant is captured on the outside surfaces of the filter. The clean fluid exits through the outlet. A controller monitors the differential pressure across the filter. When enough contaminant collects on the element and the differential pressure reaches a pre-selected point (^P), the backwash sequence is initiated. The backwash is accomplished by automatically shocking the filter with air or gas which lasts approximately 10 seconds. There is no introduction of additional fluids to contaminate the process, and the volume of liquid discharged is held to a minimum, reducing disposal costs. When the backwash operation is completed, the system returns on-line, the controller resets itself, and the whole process begins again.
