The Amiad Filtomat M100 Series is automatic, self-cleaning filters, ideal for remote installation sites, with a water-driven self-cleaning mechanism that doesn’t require an external power source for operation. With a variety of screen areas, the M100 models support flow rates of up to 800 m3/h, with filtration degrees of 500 down to 80 micron and inlet/outlet diameters from 2” to 14”.
The filtration process begins when raw water flows through the filter inlet into the coarse screen which pre-filters the water to protect the cleaning mechanism from large debris. The water then passes through the inner surface of the fine screen where dirt particles are trapped and accumulate inside the filter, while clean water flows through the filter outlet. The gradual buildup of dirt on the inner screen surface causes a filter cake to develop which causes an increase in the pressure differential across the screen.
When the pressure differential across the screen reaches a pre-set level of 0.5 bar (7 psi), the M100 or MG filter starts the self-cleaning process by opening the internal flush valve. This results in the release of a back-flush stream flowing through the nozzles out of the hollow suction-scanner shaft to the turbine and to the drainage pipe.
Available as a stand alone or as filter bank assembly, with a single control system (AC/DC).
