Module filter systems

Backflushing with filtrate (F29)/external medium (F28)

The fully automatic backflush filter has proven itself in numerous industrial applications as a process-reliable, high-performance and by and large maintenance-free backflush filter system. Employing the concept of fully automatic backflushing of the filter cartridges, the filter cleans itself during the ongoing filtration process with no interruption of operation. A portion of the volumetric flow that has already been filtered or a (supplemental) flushing medium is used for backflushing. 
The dimensioning of module filter systems is tailored to your use case, for example, with custom shapes and dimensions as well as other materials and customer specifications.

Application areas

  • Refineries (protection of reactors for further processing)
  • Petrochemical industry (refining of fuels)

Filtration capacity

This is dependent on the filter size and the filter medium. The modular design makes it possible to adapt the filtration capacity to suit individual needs. Filtration capacities from 15 m³/h to 500 m³/h are possible.

Advantages

  • Increased cost-effectiveness in fuel production processes
  • Enables production of lighter fuels meeting increased environmental protection requirements
  • Fully automatic, continuous production process thanks to fully automatic backflushing for regeneration/
    cleaning of the filter elements
  • Optimal combination of longevity, high contaminant holding capacity and minimized backflushing losses
  • Unsurpassed flexibility with respect to flow rate, contaminant amount and changing future requirements
    thanks to its modular design
  • Backflushing is independent of the existing operating pressure
  • Durable and low in maintenance

Module filters

Robust and reliable with low operating and maintenance costs.

Gas-assisted filtrate backflushing (F27)

Employing the concept of fully automatic backflushing of the filter cartridges, the predominantly maintenance-free module filter cleans itself during the ongoing filtration process with no interruption of operation. A portion of the volumetric flow that has already been filtered is used for backflushing. Before cleaning, an inert gas (e.g. nitrogen) is used to build up a pressure reserve in the module that is to be cleaned. The subsequent cleaning by means of flow reversal then takes place with the pressure created using the inert gas.

Filtration capacity

This is dependent on the filter size and the filter medium. The modular design makes it possible to adapt the filtration capacity to suit individual needs. Filtration capacities from 5 m³/h to 500 m³/h are possible.
