An area where pre-filtration is required is in high-pressure water jetting applications, used predominantly for cleaning and cutting.
Typically using plunger type reciprocating pumps to produce the very high pressures required (400-3000 bar), an ingress of solids to this type of pump will cause damage and lack of efficiency. The pumps are often pre-filtered to 5 or 1 micron, typically with bag or depth cartridges.
Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment
Bulk Solids Removal
To remove a high quantity of solids, gels and other irregular shaped particles, a filtration solution with high surface area and flow properties is required.
Prevents debris, scale flakes, dirt and particle build up in pipework, tanks, equipment and where present, premature blinding of filtration stages further along the cascade.
SPECTRUM Premier Bag
Multiple pre-filter and microfibre layers of the Premier bag offers graded filtration as well as efficient particle removal. WRAS approved and FDA compliant.
SPECTRUM TruDepth Standard Spun-Bonded Cartridge
Boasting WRAS approval over the ESP, the TruDepth Standard is the best value option for general particulate reduction. With a recognisable mini-grooved construction, the SSP has a higher surface area and enhanced dirt holding capacity over the TruDepth Economic cartridge (ESP).
Pentair 10″ Bag Housing & Bag Filters
The popular 10” Pentair PBH is a corrosion resistant polypropylene bag filter housing constructed to give strength without the weight of typical stainless steel options, making them ideal for applications with low-flow, chemical compatibility, space restrictions or economic requirements. This 10” PBH-410 housing comes with gauge, bag support basket, spanner and drain valve. Bag filters to suit this system are the BP-410 (polypropylene) or BN-410 (nylon).
