Automatic Self-Cleaning Filters: Omega Series BrochureSource: Amiad Water Systems
The Amiad Omega Series are automatic filters, with multiple screens operated by a common electric driven screen cleaning mechanism. The “Omega” filter flow rate range is up to 5,000 m³/h (22,000 gpm) and from 500-10 micron filtration degree. Inlet/Outlet flanged connections are available in the range of 200-800 mm (8”-32”).
Raw water enters from the filter inlet and passes through the multi-screens. Filtered water flows through the filter outlet. The gradual dirt buildup on the inner multi-screen’s surface causes a filter cake to develop, with a corresponding increase in the pressure differential across the multi-screens. A pressure differential switch senses the pressure differential and when it reaches a pre-set value, the self-cleaning process begins.
