Filter systems extended. (Plant & Equipment).

The range of Ronningen-Petter AFR Series automatic internal backwashing filter systems has been extended with the introduction of 152mm diameter tubular filter bodies.

Offering economical, low retention/high flow filtration, the larger systems retain the compact configuration, small footprint and low operating cost/maintenance characteristics of the AFR design. Designed primarily for high flow water filtration, typical applications include industrial process cooling, cooling towers, treated mill water and water extraction from wells, bore-holes, etc. The system, available throughout the UK from filtration specialists Meller Process Equipment, consists of up to eight 152mm tubes in circular configuration around a central inlet/outlet manifold, capable of handling flow rates up to 2745 1/min per tube and retentions from 1-100 microns.

Larger tube capacity allows for up to 15 filter elements in each body tube. Adopting a bottom to top flow path, liquid flows in under pressure from the central inlet up and through the filter elements, the filtered liquid being discharged from the upper outlet.

Operating under a programmable logic controller, the filtration process is continuous, and used backwash liquid can be recycled or diverted to waste.
