Netafim Scan-Kleen Screen Filters offer quick and easy manual cleaning without flow interruption. These filter are designed as a primary filter for well water with small amounts of sand, center pivots and reservoir water with small amounts of algae.
The stainless steel screen provides strength and long life durability, and is ideal for use as a primary filter on well water with small amounts of sand or reservoir water with small amounts of algae. When cleaning the filter, there is no need to manually disassemble, clean the screen and reassemble the filter. Just open the flush valve and turn the handle to rotate the dirt collector. The combination of rotation and linear movement scans and cleans the while internal screen surface. Water flow is not interrupted during the cleaning process.
Water enters the filter through the inlet and reaches the screen (1) which traps the particles from the water. As mor ewater flows through, debris builds up on the screen. As debris accumulates on the screen, a pressure differential builds up between the internal and external sections of the screen.
When the pressure differential reaches the determined value (7-10 psi), the filter should be cleaned. Water continues to flow through the filter during the cleaning process.
This combination of rotation and linear movement cleans the whole internal screen surface. The flushing cycle takes about 10 seconds.
