The 180C (clamp-style) filter boasts a more compact and lightweight alternative to the standard 180 series. The 180C series offers a first-stage coarse protection screen, and a second-stage fine screen. The 180C filter line accommodates simple online installation, with the water-saving advantage of using only a single 1″ flush valve.

Flush volume is as little as 4-12 gallons per backwash, depending on the selected model. 180C filters are ideal for irrigation, municipal, or industrial applications where installation footprint, weight, or flush volume are of concern.

Low Pressure models make self-cleaning filtration possible at lower pressures. The Low Pressure Series automatic water filters utilize an electric motor to assist cleaning during the backwash cycle. They are necessary where the minimum 35 psi system pressure is not available. Motor powered filters operate at system pressures as low as 15 psi. All 180 Series and Zero Series filter models can be upgraded to allow low pressure irrigation and industrial water filtration.

Applications:

  • Cooling Towers: Can be integrated at any point within a process cooling system.
  • Petrochemical: Self-cleaning water filters ensure that continuous water flow.
  • Seawater: Industrial water filters provide a vital tool for solid removal from seawater.
  • Food Processing: Regulate water quality to ensure cleanliness and proper hygiene.
  • Water Processing: These filters provide reliable and efficient particle removal.
  • Irrigation: Eliminate debris from clogging lines, while improving overall water quality.

How does the self cleaning process work?

A self cleaning filter is a type of water filter which utilizes system pressure to clean itself. A rigid cylinder screen strains particles from the water source, trapping debris on the inside. This layer of buildup causes differential pressure across the inlet and outlet. A controller monitors the filter and opens a flush valve when it senses adequate differential pressure. This creates rapid flow through the internal cleaning apparatus, which vacuums buildup from the screen and expels it.

Features:

Expert design allows our filters to comply with the rigid standards of the industrial sector. While at the same time saving time and money from maintenance costs, and process down time. Self-cleaning filters are offered in a wide range of sizes, orientations, and to varying degrees of filtration in order to answer any demand.
