Self-cleaning backflushing filter, also for highly viscous media and high temperatures

Fully automatic backflushing filters are primarily used for the filtration of high polluted liquids and work almost wear-free. Due to its simple backflushing system, this self-cleaning filter can also be used for highly viscous media and in high temperature areas. The cleaning process is possible without interruption of filtration.

Characteristics of the filter system

  • Filtration of solids from liquids
  • Design pressure up to 25 bar
  • Temperature range from -10 °C to 220 °C
  • Suitable for filter finenesses larger 25 µm
  • Self-cleaning filter elements
  • Cleaning without filtration interruption


The filter vessel can be produced of stainless steel or carbon steel (with or without inner lining).

Benefits of the filter system

  • Reusable filter element
  • Long operating times
  • Very high flow rate possible
  • Almost wear-free filtration (filter elements)
  • Ex-protected construction of the system possible


  • Slot type cylinder
  • Perforated plate cylinder

The filter elements can be supplied made of stainless steel, titanium, Hastelloy, Monel / Inconel or Super Duplex materials. Other material can be supplied upon request.
