FIBROTEX® technology employs an expandable-bed fibrous filter element with a PLC. This enables the fibrous filter both to efficiently backwash itself automatically when fully loaded with solids, and to achieve exceptionally fine levels of filtration.
FIBROTEX® offers a significantly better filtrate and backwash efficiency and a much smaller footprint (75% less typically) when compared to sand and other multimedia filters. Backwash water acts as a carrier to remove the displaced particulates rather than as the primary cleaning agent as in other backwashable depth filters. As a result, backwashing is highly efficient and requires a low volume of backwash water. Backwash rates are typically less than 2% of the filtrate and last only for a few minutes. Employing multiple units allows for continual flow and operation 24 hours a day with standby capacity available – even during backwash cycles.
