Baleen is an open-gravity self-cleaning filter for separating solids from virtually all types of process or waste water streams, to deliver many compelling advantages and/or enhancements over screens, clarifiers, hydrocyclones, centrifuges and DAFF.
There are generally three stages to treating wastewater, primary, secondary and tertiary, with each stage requiring some form of filtration or separation methodology. The Baleen Filter can be used at any of these stages:
1. Primary treatment - to separate visible, settleable constituents to less than 0.125mm (125 micron or 120 Mesh)
2. Secondary treatment - to remove fine suspended and/or soluble constituents to less than 0.063 (63 micron or 250 Mesh)
3. Tertiary treatment - to produce water acceptable for a a specified purpose/subsequent use, which in many cases requires pre-filtration to around 0.025mm (25 micron or 500 Mesh).
There are major benefits of the Baleen Filter for Industry:
Lower capital costs, compared with traditional settling and clarifying methods.
Very versatile - can be adapted for use as a mobile clean-up system and emergency pollution response.
Small footprint - saving valuable land.
Ideal for resource recovery.
Environmentally friendly, reduced or no chemicals necessary.
Low operating costs, low energy needs and low maintenance.
Simplicity of downstream treatment processes.

Baleen Filters was established in 1998 as a result of a successful four-year industrially applied Research & Development program, originating from the University of South Australia.
