Automatic, Self-Cleaning Screen Filtration System – SAF Series
The Amiad SAF Series are sophisticated, yet easy-to-operate, automatic filtration system, with a self-cleaning mechanism driven by an electric motor. The SAF supports flow-rates of up to 1760 gpm, with various screens designed to cover a range of 800-10 micron filtration degree, and are available in inlet/outlet diameters of 2”-10”.
Amiad’s suction-scanning technology combines focused flush with automation to provide 100% cleaning of the screen area, using less than 1% of the total process water for cleaning. The self-cleaning cycle is triggered by the accumulation of suspended solids (filter cake) on the screen surface, as measured by the pressure differential. Because cleaning is performed “as needed”, it results in minimal water and energy waste. Suction-scanning technology eliminates the need to isolate the filter during the self-cleaning cycle. The focused cleaning and the minimal exhaust requirement allow for uninterrupted process flow.
Two types of control boards are available for the SAF filters: Programmable Logic Control (PLC) or Electro-Mechanical Relay and Timer.
