Automatic self-cleaning pipeline strainers and filters protect valuable equipment from debris, with the added benefits of continuous flow and streamlined maintenance.
Automatic self-cleaning filters from Eaton include
mechanically cleaned filtershigh flow mechanically cleaned strainerstubular backwashing filtersautomated custom cast and fabricated pipeline strainers
Mechanically cleaned filters from Eaton (formerly Ronningen-Petter) are the finest automatic self-cleaning filters available, featuring improved flow, minimal loss of product, and reduced operator intervention.
For low product loss and few wear parts, look to the MCF & MCS magnetically coupled series.
For reliable and economical operation with higher viscosity liquids, look to the DCF series. Eaton also has incorporated the Zurn line of automatic strainers.
Process filtration systems are designed to clean and treat substances like water, chemicals, and gases in most processing applications from sanitary to heavy industrial. These filtration systems form an important part of most industrial processes, in applications like pharmaceutical, chemicals and coatings, food and beverage, water treatment, oil and gas, and more. A well designed and maintained filtration system reduces maintenance costs and improves process efficiency.
Each industrial filtration system is designed according to the properties of the material and the contaminants (or by products) that are being removed, as well as the process needs. Filtration solutions may range from a basket strainer that can remove products as small as 40 µm (microns) or depth filters that can filter down to .1 µm. The ideal filtration solution also depends on whether the process can be interrupted to change or clean filters, and whether automatic cleaning is necessary. The design and quality of the filtration system is essential to protect downstream equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, traps, valves and filters from damage due to contamination.
