AutoFilt® RFBW Automatic Backwash Filter for Ballast Water Treatment

Supplier: HYDAC International

The new automatic backflush filter HYDAC AutoFilt® RFBW has been specially developed for shipping technology and is particularly suitable for such applications.

Price Guide: POA

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.
