Mechanically Self Cleaning Filters
Collect, concentrate, and expel: how it works
Ronningen-Petter mechanically cleaned filters are based on a simple concept: A cylindrical stainless steel housing contains a filter screen; unfiltered liquids enter the inlet; solids are deposited on the interior surface of the filtration media; and filtered fluid exits at the outlet.
When the media requires cleaning (based on time, differential pressure, or manual selection), a cleaning disc travels down and up the screen, removing concentrated solids. This cleaning process happens while the filter remains in service, thereby maintaining process efficiency and dramatically reducing loss of valuable product.
