• Constant and low pressure differential filtration
• No downtime to change bags, increase filter productivity
• No manual handling of used filter bags
• Small footprint


PVSC Series Self Cleaning Mechanical Filters

Our mechanical clean filter system is designed to handle to filter particles 25 micron and larger in various industries where high particle content, viscous and sticky liquids are present which other systems can’t handle. PVSC filters are ideal for continuous and batch applications.

The filtration system uses dual pneumatically driven activators to move the special grade Teflon disc up and down the screen to perform the cleaning operation inside of the vertically slotted wedge or perforated screen. The system can either be operated in manual or automatic mode. The collected dirt is periodically purged in intervals of less than 1-2 seconds to minimise product losses during operation.

A cleaning disc is moving up and down the screen surface to remove the dirt which then can be discharged through the drain valve at periodial times.
The cleaning- and discharge frequency can be programmed using the integrated PLC to suit the individual requirements. Alternativelly the system can be operated manually.
