F Series

For liquid filtering that requires unattended operation, maximum uptime, and solids removal from 1 to 1,700 microns, the F-Series delivers unbeatable performance.

The key to the F-Series’ versatility is its modular design that enables future capacity and configuration flexibility. F-Series systems can include 2 to 20 body tubes on a single framed skid and can be ordered with blank stations to allow low-cost expanded capacity.

The F-Series uses cleanable media. This further reduces life cycle costs and maximizes productivity by eliminating the labor, replacement, and disposal costs of bags and cartridges. Three types of elements are offered: single element with 0.23 m2 of surface area, the Tri-Cluster® with 0.33 m2 of surface area,  or the Accuflux® 7 with 0.51 m2 of surface area.

The F-Series features 3-way ball valves, automated cleaning with direct mounted actuators and solenoids, and available blank stations for easy future expansion.

How the F-Series Works

When cleaning is required, triggered by time or pressure differential, a single valve removes the tube to be back-washed from the incoming flow stream. The resulting pressure drop redirects a portion of the clean process flow downward, flushing the contaminants to the drain manifold. When process liquids are very valuable or hazardous, an external back-wash configuration, which uses a small amount of cleaning liquid introduced through a separate manifold,  is recommended. External backwashing is also recommended when operating  pressures are expected to be less than 3.1 bar.

FEATURES

  • Solids removal from 1 to 1,700 microns
  • Single system flow rates up to 681 m3/h
  • Smooth pipe and nozzle connection transitions to avoid dead spots in the fluid stream and minimize pressure drop
  • Broad selection of filter media materials and retentions suitable for a wide range of applications
  • Proprietary 3-way, full-ported valves allow fast, frequent sequencing and maximum cleaning force during backwashing
  • Isolated top-to-bottom backwash flow ensures complete and efficient media cleaning while continuing to deliver filtered product downstream
  • Numerous automated backwash options for operator-free service and minimal backwash effluent (<2% of system volume)
  • Available ACCUFLUX™  media dramatically increases filter surface area in the same footprint

External backwash system shown. Secondary header at the top of the unit introduces cleaning fluid, typically water, (green arrows) to loosen and discharge debris to the drain header at the bottom.

3-way ball valves

To ensure positive sealing and maximum flow, our F-Series filters feature the industry’s best 3-way ball valves. These important components were developed specifically for the demands of industrial filtration. Their full-ported design reduces pressure drop and requires no additional linkages for actuation.
