Sand filters "FiltrePro"
  > Printable version

Our new sand filters "FILTREPRO" are very popular in the water recirculation systems and for filtration of water very charged in particles.  The reason is simple:  the maintenance of our filters requires only very little time, an intervention from only 8 to 10 minutes per week are enough to obtain a water of quality.

One of the great characteristics of the sand filters "FILTREPRO" is that they do not require a pump for backwashings and water to be treated is distributed uniformly on all the surface of filtration by a set of internal distributors. 

Filtration is ensured by 410 kg (900 pounds) of quartz sand of gauged granulometry.  In the process of filtration, water charged with particles crosses the sand bed completely and leaves the filter by gravity. This process involves a loss of pressure lower than 5 psi. 

At the time of backwashing (automatic), clogged sand goes down by gravity to the bottom of the filter.  A system of pump with emulsion takes this sand and bring it to the top of the filter, in the separation and washing process.  Clean sand is reintroduced at the top of the filter bed.  The system of washing and separation constitutes the heart of the filter.  It receives a mixture of water, sand and impurities.  The impurities of washing are evacuated outside the filter.  The cleaning of sand is made in an automatic way using a valve actuated by a compressed-air cylinder (Air compressor in option).
