AZUD Helix Automatic FT200 AA DLP Disc Filter
The AZUD Helix Automatic FT200 AA DLP disc filter is a piece of disc filtration equipment that acts as a screen in a water treatment plant.
This disc filter is composed of 1-10 AZUD Helix Automatic Ø2 filters with MG/WS discs, installed in-line. It performs in-depth 3D filtration followed by automatic backwashing.
Its DLP technology enables the sequential low-pressure backwashing of each filter using a combination of filtered water and compressed air stored in an auxiliary tank.
The patented AZUD Helix anti-clogging deflector allows for centrifugal separation, ensuring reliable filtration.
Because of the abovementioned factors, the disc filter reduces the volume of backwashed water up to 80% compared to regular disc filtration.
Besides the volume of backwashed water, the frequency of backwashes is also a lot lower in comparison with regular disc filtration. This makes AZUD’s disc filters more sustainable as they use less water and energy.
The AZUD Helix Automatic FT200 AA DLP disc filter is a smart, compact and modular plug-and-play device made of technical thermoplastics. The disc filter has an extended shelf life and guarentees long-term operation with minimum operational costs and less maintenance downtime.
Advantages of AZUD Helix Automatic FT200 AA DLP Disc Filter
- Self-cleaning: The DLP technology enables the disc filter to clean itself, so there is no need to interrupt the water treatment process by switching off the system to clean the filter manually.
- Saves water: This disc filter can reduce the volume of backwashed water up to 80% compared to regular disc filtration.
- Low energy consumption: The frequency of backwashes is also a lot lower in comparison with regular disc filtration, meaning it uses less energy.
- Minimal pressure: Very little pressure is required to perform the backwash, as the pressure is provided by the air supply.
Filtration for cooling towers
The disc filter is designed to protect cooling towers’ equipment. It does this by removing suspended solids and other solid materials, preventing biofouling, guaranteeing longer periods of continuous operation, and ensuring longer cycles of concentration.
Media filter prefiltration
The disc filter protects media filters and improves their performance. By removing suspended organic matter, it also delays filter media replacement and reduces the need for maintenance.
Ultrafiltration membrane prefiltration
The disc filter guarantees ultrafiltration (UF) membrane protection. By extension, it also improves the performance and extends the lifespan of the UF membranes.
Filtration for water recycling systems
The disc filter is ideal for difficult water such as sewage effluent. It is an excellent addition to a water recycling plant as it allows for significant water recovery – saving you between 40% and 50% of water. By decreasing drain water discharge, the plant has a lower environmental impact too.
