automatic filter F480
The self-cleaning Automatic Filter F480 is pneumatically operated and used for the separation of solids in various different media like seawater, river water or process water. The Filter ensures reliable and continuous filtration in a variety of applications like cooling water cycles or water treatment plants. The filter can operate at very low pressures of only ≥ 0,7 bar and is characterized by an unmatched low backflush rate, a compact design and near maintenance-free operation. The F480 utilizes the advanced Multi-Bernoulli cleaning technology. This technology was invented by Georg Schünemann and combines multiple strainers in one filter housing.
THE COMPACT GIANT
Reliable filtration by using the Bernoulli principle
The multi-strainer design allows exceptionally high volume flows of up to 40.000 m3/h with a single and compact filter. Furthermore, the Multi-Bernoulli cleaning technology reduces the backflush significantly. While maximizing the clean water flow the waste water flow is reduced to a minimum. Possible costs for the storage or disposal of the backflush can be reduced significantly.
The F480 ensures the safe protection of our customer’s applications with a consistently high filtration quality down to 40 μm. The proven Multi-Bernoulli technology warrants a continues and effective filtration even at low operating pressures starting from only 0.7 bar.
The F480 can be adopted to all customer requirements and offers a broad range of materials suitable for almost every application. The design allows flexible nozzle positions which ensures a simple integration into the piping. Furthermore, the F480 can be designed according to many national and international codes and regulations, among others, EN13455, ASME, AD2000, EAC and ATEX.

FILTRATION CYCLE (BERNOULLI PRINZIPLE)
Bernoulli‘s principle states that an increase in the speed of a fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in static pressure. Georg Schünemann has perfected the utilization of the Bernoulli principle for automatic filters over decades. The distinguishing feature of this filter is the flushing disc, which enables an efficient and contactless cleaning. The cleaning process is completely automatic and requires no manual intervention.
5. The released particles are flushed out from the filter via the flushing outlet. Finally, the flushing valve is closed.
The filtration will not be interrupted during the entire cleaning cycle.
