Cost effectiveness and energy efficiency
Filter Type W is a very economical strainer:
Its pressure loss is
- only 50% in comparison to conventional pot / basket strainers
- only 25% in comparison to Y-Filters of same dimension and sieve mesh.
This advantage reduces the cost of pump energy and result in extended reserves until the cleaning cycle. Connectors for the differential pressure are standard from size DN 150 and above (below upon request possible).
The streamlined angle of impact between the flow and the sieve / screen results in a slowly increasing pressure loss, caused by dirt, and at least more than double the operational time before cleaning.
As the cleaning cover is located at the top, the rare cleaning cycle is easily and conveniently carried out. The sieve is a closed basket and simultaneously serves the complete removal of the dirt – hence the remaining medium is already cleaned and can be just drained.
