FILIX is automatic self-cleaning and built for filtration of water, sea water and process fluids. Our filters are robust and have great operational track records from various applications. The filter casing is of Duplex 2205, ensuring excellent corrosion resistance and weight savings. The filter screen comes in different qualities dependent on application – 316L is standard. FILIX standard filters are available with filtration grades ranging from 20 till 300 µm and dimensions from DN80 to DN700. Other dimensions and grades are available upon request.
The FILIX family of filters comprises single screen and multi-screen models, all utilising the difference between internal pressure and the pressure in the back-flush line (ideally atmospheric) for self-cleaning. A cleaning cycle is initiated when the pressure across the filter screen reaches a pre-set value during which a number of cleaning nozzles are rotated in a spiral covering the entire filter screen area. The duration of a cleaning cycle is 1 minute. The flow required for cleaning is approximately 10 % of that of nominal flow. The nozzles are designed to ensure high hydraulic efficiency as well as resistance against clogging.
