“Candles” consist of columns formed by stacking the company's wafers on top of one another. A single candle can be used or they can be grouped in a vessel. Each candle is held in suspension from a support plate. Candles are lowered and secured in place in the filter vessels. Dirty fluid enters the filter vessel from the lower chamber, flowing radially across the filter elements. The fluid is then transported, via the element integral conduits, to the upper chamber as clean filtrate. The upper chamber also serves as the self-contained reservoir, where a residual volume of clean fluid is used to backwash and clean the filter elements.
