Tecnoidea’s high-beam design eases filter changes
Tecnoidea Impianti has introduced a plate press filtration plant with high-beam design, which is capable of working at pressures up to 16bar and said to speed the location of and replacement of breached filters.
The modular design can have up to 100 pairs of filters to cope with flows up to 9,000lit/min and each pair has an individual drain, making it easier to locate breached filters. For ease and speed of replacing breached filter material, the high-beam design incorporates a handling system to remove the relevant filter.
Contaminants from 3mm down to a few microns are captured by the filters with 95% of the water removed for re-use. When the operation allows, the twin pump system is adjusted using an inverter to reduce the working pressure and lower energy consumption.
Maximum sludge capacity is 10m3/cycle and the cakes are discharged by gravity. Water cleanliness meets the Italian 80mg/lit limit for discharging water to rivers and lakes and even tighter levels can be met using sand bed filtration after-treatment.
