The drum microscreen filter features a polyester microscreen (Nitex type) mounted on a corrosion resistant drum for strength and durability. Screen sizes are available with openings as small as 15 microns.

As water flows through the lower drum's half, the small screen cells help to transport the captured solids to the backwash spray area for an intermittent and automatic self cleaning.

 

Transmission
Drum is turned by a heavy duty DC motor coupled to a lubricated gear box.  An electronic variable speed is standard on each models allowing you to select the right drum rotation speed.

Materials
To maximize its durability, Aquamerik offers for several years an drum entirely molded in fiberglass (FTR-36/61 model).  Others smaller models are made from plastic material ( chlorinated polyvinyl).

Head loss
Our filters offer a high flow industrial filtration with minimum head loss (around 4 to 6").  Ideally, the water supply will be performed by gravity to avoid particules fragmentation resulting from water pumping

Maintenance
Drum filter maintenance is very low, the screen replacement take only few minutes, you can easily adapt the filter to the actual need of water flow capacity and filtration performance requirements.  There is only one part to lubricate two times a year.  The strong motor and extra strength gear box significantly increases the filter's service life.

Automatic backwash
A probe detects the filtration membrane clogging and send a signal to the automatic control system to proceed with a backwash.  Backwash cycle is fully programmable by the user corresponding to the application request. A minimum pressure of 40 PSI is required for this operation.

Using cold water backwash most of the time and if necessary with periodic programmable hot water (80o C.) cycles to remove biological fouling that would eventually clog the screens. 

For high precision settings, a push button is now allowing to simulate a cold water backwash.

The Aquamerik drum filter operates with a low energy consumption and requires only 4-7 GPM (15-26 LPM) -depending on size- periodic backwash water flow.

Model selection
Filters are available in three models with drum diameters of 18, 27 and 36 inches. Each model is made from non corrosive materials, ideal for salt water applications.

Those filters design brings you the possibility to select different configurations for the inlet and outlet piping.
