Technology

Azud Luxon filters continue to supply filtered water without interruption during the flushing cycle.

Filtration stage: Water flows into the filter through the inlet (1) and enters the internal space of the filter element. The water then passes through the screen (2). Particles remain on the inside of the filter element (screen). Filtered water flows out through the outlet (3).

Backflushing stage: When the pressure differential from inlet to outlet (ΔP) reaches the pre-selected level, the flushing cycle starts. The electric propulsion turns the brushes (4) that brush the captured particles from screen. At the same time, a hydraulic valve opens in the drain port (5), which creates a “suction bell” above the brushes, transporting the particles into the waste flow and expelling them out the drain port (5).

The length of the flush cycle is pre-determined by the control unit. When the cycle is complete, the flush valve closes, the brushes stop turning and the flushing ends. The flushing process uses a minimal amount of water.
