The RFBW is used in the pre-conditioning of the ballast water where small particles and organisms ≥ 50 μm are removed from the ballast water. A physical or chemical separation system can then be installed downstream so that microorganisms, bacteria and viruses can be killed.
The HYDAC AutoFilt® RFBW can be installed vertically and horizontally. Thus it can be integrated effectively and space-saving into every system. The robust design in connection with material selection suitable for the relevant application and effective isokinetic backflushing assures a high operation safety and reduces the costs for operation and maintenance.
- Fully automatic function
- Continuous filtrate flow also during backflushing
- Especially developed filter elements for the requirements at ballast water
- Flow-rates up to 3000 m³/h per filter
- Variable housing isometry
- Small footprint
