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 Filtration Group AF 71 G metal-edge filter belongs to the small Vario series. The Filtration Group metal-edge filter system is used to filter and homogenise a wide range of liquids and pastes. This compact, inline filter system consumes no filter material, which means there is also no need for subsequent disposal. The filter is cleaned either automatically or semi-automatically without interrupting operation. Optional a pneumatical rotary drive is also available. Its advance is given by use with the differential pressure measure and display unit with integrated control funtion PiC 3170 MFC. Autarcic automatic filters can be combined without need of a power station for a 3-phase motor. 24 V DC field voltage and compressed air as auxilliary energy are sufficient. 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 filter cartridge. The solids are separated on the surface of the triangular filter cartridge 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 filter cartridge is rotated against a spring actuated scraper for this purpose. The special gap geometry of the filter cartridge guarantees efficient cleaning. The particles or agglomerates are skimmed from the surface and settle in the collection cone. The patented filter cartridge bearing (AKF system) prevents high axial forces and facilitates the cleaning process. The residue that has settled in the collection cone can be emptied via the drain valve either when the machine is at a standstill or during filtration.

The curves indicate the volume flow through the complete filter system (filter housing including element) and are referred to a differential pressure of 0.3 bar. Specific process information is essential to guarantee reliable operation of an automatic filter.
