Many industrial process liquids become contaminated with various solids, debris or swarf and have to be removed by gravity filtration.
Dirty liquid is fed into the gravity filter through an inlet header forming a pool. Gravity and the weight of the liquid become the driving force and create a pressure differential across the media. Solids accumulate on the surface of the media to form a filter “cake” which further improves filtrate clarity through depth filtration. The pressure differential also provides a higher filtration rate and lower filter media consumption.
For most any application, complete system packages including tanks, pumps and controls can be proposed.
