Suspended solids present in water taken from a drinking water supply for sample water use was causing issues within the water treatment works. This was initially solved with the use of inline cartridge filters. Due to the level of solids required to be removed, the frequency for cartridge change outs soon became an issue from an overall performance and cost point of view.
Following our workshop trial of the Velocitek System, IWF designed and manufactured a “specially designed” Velocitek system to enable continuous filtration even during self-cleaning operations. This provided a fully automatic solution, providing the client with reliable and continuous solids removal with minimal operator intervention.
Advantages of the Velocitek OVF system for this application:
- High filtration performance down to <1.0 micron
- Continuous automatic operation
- High tolerance to varying solids loading
- Very low maintenance
- Compact design
- Tailored control system
