Isokinetic

Tried-an-tested operating principle

The AutoFilt® RF3 series has been highly successful. It is used to separate solid particles from low viscosity fluids and its flow-optimised designed is impressive.

Features

  • Separation of solid particles from low viscosity fluids
  • Conical filter elements provide greater efficiency
  • Variable housing design: The inlet and outlet flanges, as well as the back-flush line, can be arranged in various positions in relation to one another- this means that the filter can be easily integrated into any system layout

Advantages

  • Fully automatic operation
  • Ready-to-operate unit
  • Maximum utilisation of the filter area
  • Provide its worth over a thousand times
  • Isokinetic filtering and back-flushing
  • Service friendly and low operating costs

AutoFilt® RF10 - Low Pressure

JetFlush

JetFlush technology - hydrodynamic suction effect

The patented technology used in the HYDAC AutoFilt® RF10 breaks new ground and provides a solution for applications where conventional back-flushing filters have already reached their design limit. The AutoFilt® RF10  is particularly suitable for applications with high dirt loads and surges in contamination.

Features

  • Variable filter isometry
  • Individual control parameters
  • Filtration ratings from 25 µm to 3000 µm
  • Electro-pneumatic power supply
  • Stainless steel filter elements
  • Corrosion protection for carbon steel filter housing: Polyurethane coating

Advantages

  • Back-flushing independent of pressure on clean side of filter
  • Dependent only on inlet pressure
  • Highly efficient back-flushing with low pressure conditions and long back-flush lines
  • With its highly efficient back-flushing, the filter is suitable for high dirt loads and also surges in contamination
  • Low maintenance requirements reduce operating costs significantly
