Technology

Luxon-LPF_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 the inlet to outlet (ΔP) reaches the pre-selected level, the flushing cycle starts. A hydraulic valve opens in the drain port, which starts the suction in the inner nozzles (4). This, along with the helical movement up and down the screen, sucks the captured particles into the waste flow. The trapped particles are expelled 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 and the flushing ends. The flushing process uses a minimal amount of water.
