Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers
Automatic self-cleaning strainers are fluid filters that utilize system pressure to keep themselves clean. By removing large particles and debris from flowing fluid, these self-cleaning strainers are capable of saving money on energy, water, equipment replacement, and maintenance.
These filters are called automatic self-cleaning strainers because, unlike several other systems, this advanced technology does not require any routine maintenance. There is no need for constant change-outs or system shutdowns such as a bag or cartridge filter.
The Eliminator® Series strainers are automatic and motorized self-cleaning strainers designed by Fluid Engineering. They can provide continuous debris removal from the fluid piping systems that demand an uninterrupted flow.
These strainers are also quite effective in fluid applications that have high solids, unattended service, and uninterrupted flow requirements. They consider a basket strainer and their attendant maintenance problems quite impractical.
When the Fluid Engineering 723 – 793 – 753 Strainers are correctly applied, they turn out to be one of the most cost-effective efficient strainers compared to the standard or duplex options.
Another good example of an automatic self-cleaning strainer is 721 – 751 Hyper-Jet, a proven and patented filtration solution. This one is more effective in fluid applications where there is the need for uninterrupted flow and unattended service.
The solid particles and debris get caught in the strainer screen, and when they are removed, the strainer backwashes. During the backwash cycle process, the downstream flow does not get interrupted. The Hyper-Jet further adds internal spray nozzles that are powered by a high-pressure external source to aid in cleaning.
There are various strainer housings and screens also available in numerous materials and configurations to help meet the many applications, including the geminate, Didymosphenia, more commonly referred to as a didymo rock snot.
