SPIRAL BRUSH FILTER

AUTOMATIC SELF-CLEANING FILTER

HOW
SPIRAL BRUSH FILTRATION
WORKS

1

Wastewater flows into the top of the unit where it enters the interior of the cylindrical screen.
2

Clarified material or filtrate exits the unit by passing through the screen while the solids accumulate inside the screen.
3

The motor at the bottom of the unit spins a cleaning brush, keeping the screen clean and pushing the accumulated solids downward to the purge outlet.
4

An automated valve opens periodically to purge solids out of the unit.
