Self-Cleaning Coarse Strainer
Designed for applications where a fine level of filtration is not required, Series ORC can be installed in parallel to handle larger flow rates. Perforated stainless steel screens are available with 3000, 5000 or 8000 micron openings. The automatic, self-cleaning industrial water filter has a maximum pressure of 150 psi and a maximum temperature of 150°F. Features include line pressure power and stainless or carbon steel construction. During operation, dirty water enters the inlet and travels to the concave surface of the perforated screen. The water then passes through the screen and exits the outlet. Unwanted particles accumulate on the surface of the screen. On activation of the rinse cycle, the rinse valve is opened to drain. A portion of the water flows back through the screen, lifting the solids off. A portion of the flow also travels across the screen surface, carrying the solids to the drain.
