Filtration Group (ex Mahle) automatic metal-edge filters are suitable for all applications where low or high-viscosity liquids or pastes have to be filtered and homogenised.
These compact inline filter systems can be designed for semi or fully automatic cleaning. The system is cleaned by rotating the filter cartridge against a spring actuated scraper.
The AF 71 H filter have been introduced in the production processes which provide for the filtration and homogenization of high viscosity PVC (2000 ÷ 4000 mPa ∙ s at 40 ° C), plastic material commonly used in the automotive sector.
This compact, inline filter system consumes no filter material, which means there is also no need for subsequent disposal. The filter is cleaned automatically, semi-automatically or manually without interrupting operation. The concentrated solids are drained off simply by opening the system for a short time.
The medium to be cleaned is guided into the filter housing under pressure or in suction mode. It flows inward through the Filtration Group (ex Mahle) filter element. The solids are separated on the surface of the triangular filter element wires. The filtered fluid exits the filter housing at the top opposite the inlet connection.
The filter is cleaned either when a preset differential pressure limit is reached or after a specified cycle time elapses. The Filtration Group (ex Mahle) filter element is rotated against a spring actuated scraper for this purpose. The special gap geometry of the filter element guarantees efficient cleaning.
The particles or agglomerates are skimmed from the surface and settle in the collection cone. The patented filter element bearing (AKF system) prevents high axial forces and facilitates the cleaning process.
The residue that has settled in the collection plenum can be emptied via the drain valve either when the machine is at a standstill or during filtration if there are moderate pessure conditions.
