Reduce consumable and maintenance demands with KSF Self Cleaning Filters

Category:

Siga Filtration provides filtration solutions for applications in process, water, food, electronics and pharmaceutical industry. We work with engineers, designers, operators and maintenance personnel to design, improve and upgrade filtration systems. Our products are used for filtering water, chemicals, food products, oils, paints, inks and sterile filtration of gases.

Siga Filtration self-cleaning filters provide continuous filtration of low and medium viscosity liquids and have very low maintenance requirements. The KSF Series self-cleaning filters do not require backflushing which results in less fluid waste, zero interruption, and fewer maintenance parts.


Applications: 

Filtration of low to medium viscosity liquids in water, wastewater, inks, paint, varnishes, oils, and food industry

Operation:
1- Liquid travels from outside to inside the wedge wire element.
2- Dirt particles are deposited outside the element.
3- A Scraper plate rotated by an electric motor, continuously scrapes off the dirt.
4- Dirt is deposited in vessel sump.
5- A manual drain valve can be used to remove the dirt from the vessel at regular intervals. Alternatively, an optional pneumatically operated valve with a timer can be used to remove dirt automatically at timed intervals.

Self cleaning wedge wire filter KSF-400 / 700 / 1000

Flow rate: Up to 35 m3/h
Cleaning mechanism: Scraper plate

Low maintenance, easy to operate, continuous cleaning with KSF Series self-cleaning filters.

KSF Series self-cleaning filters come with a top mounted electric motor which continuously rotates a scraper on the surface of an internal wedge wire element to remove dirt. This eliminates the need for backwashing and makes these filters easy to use and maintain.

An advantage of using wedge wire elements is that the V shaped profile avoids blockage by particulates.
A manual drain valve can be used to remove the dirt from the vessel at regular intervals. Alternatively, an optional pneumatically operated valve with a timer can be used to remove dirt automatically at timed intervals.

Low maintenance, easy to operate, continuous cleaning with KSF Series self-cleaning filters.

KSF –TL self-cleaning filters come with a removable motor, lid and scraper assembly which makes it easy to clean, sanitise or replace wedge wire element. This is also useful for food or batch applications where the unit must be cleaned after each batch. In addition, a flushing port is provided to clean the assembly in situ.

Top mounted electric motor continuously rotates a scraper on the surface of an internal wedge wire element to remove dirt. This eliminates the need for backwashing and makes these filters easy to use and maintain.

A manual drain valve can be used to remove the dirt from the vessel at regular intervals. Alternatively, an optional pneumatically operated valve with timer can be used to remove dirt automatically at timed intervals.
