Product description

Simple, reliable and robust BDS system

Rotoclean 160 drum filters are equipped with a BDS (Belt Drive & Support system). The motor, ideally placed on the top of the drum filter, drives and supports the drum with one or more belts.
In 20 years of experience this system has proved its benefits:
– Smooth running by nature (no need using a frequency converter for a smooth start)
– Reliability over the years (more than 5 years without maintenance)
– Transmission does not break in case of drum blockage (e.g. if an object gets into the drum)

New patented “Spiderplate” mesh support

Inspired by the nature, this new mesh support in technical injected plastic combines all the necessary advantages:
Flexibility, strength, corrosion resistance. Its patented design provides an optimal filtration area.
The economic aspect is also very important because this new support costs less to manufacture than a stainless steel support.

How a Rotoclean filter works

The operating system is simple: the filtered liquid flows into a rotating drum. This drum is made up of solid plates covered with stainless steel cloth. Impurities larger than the perforations are trapped against the inside of the plates. The drum runs slowly (3 to 8 rpm, depending on the model) and draws the impurities out of the water. A rinsing ramp located at the top of the drum cleans the plates to evacuate the impurities into the sludge outlet channel. FAIVRE filters have been designed to be corrosion resistant as they are entirely stainless steel and HDPE constructed. FAIVRE drum filters have very limited moving parts thanks to their exclusive belt-driven drum rotation and suspension system (BDS System). Maintenance is very minimized. The strength of these filters comes from the filter plates. Built according to a unique process, they can be replaced in a few minutes thanks to an exclusive fixing system. We therefore offer a complete range of filters that are efficient, robust and economical in use.

High quality stainless steel construction

Exclusive use of high quality stainless steel manufactured in Northern Europe :
– Stainless steel AISI 304L (4301) for fresh water as standard
– Stainless steel AISI 316L (4404) for sea water as standard
– Stainless steel DUPLEX (2205), SUPER DUPLEX (2507), HDPE and Titanium for warm sea water.

CCPU of the filter material can be supplied on request.

Rinse ramp with optimised water flow and pressure

Rotoclean Series 160 drum filters have an optimised rinsing pressure at the lowest possible level, which saves rinsing water.
This economy is particularly appreciated in recirculation systems where these filters are often used.
Rinsing with a lower pressure means that the mesh can be less rinsed without damaging it.

Rinsing pump

Vertical pump used to clean the filter mesh. This pump is connected to the filter cleaning ramp.
Its pressure is calculated to be adapted to the filter mesh.
The pump is delivered with all the accessories needed to connect it to the drum filter.

Stainless steel grids

Optional stainless steel grids are still available.

Control box with polyester box

The control box is supplied as an option. It provides optimum control and safety for all our drum filters.

The large IP65 polyester housing is most suitable for the 120, 160 or 200 model filters.

For the safety of people, the box integrates :
– 1 padlockable disconnect switch.
– 2 emergency stops, 1 on the front of the box, 1 other emergency stop is positioned on the drum filter.
– 1 quick release current detector is also integrated in the cabinet. This current detector stops the filter instantly in the case of a sudden blockage of the filter. (This can happen when a too thick impurity enters the filter with the water)

For the safety of the equipment the box includes :
– 1 Circuit breaker block for the power supply of the cabinet.
– 2 Thermal circuit breakers for the drum filter motor and rinsing pump motor protection.

The control box is supplied with :
– 5m cable for the power supply.
– 10m cable with M23 connector for easy connection of drum motor, flush pump, emergency stop and bonnet safety switch.
– 10m cable with M12 connector to easily connect the water level radar.

Part no. :
-FTC021-B24 Power supply 3×200-230-400-440-480-575V 50Hz/60Hz

Level probe and/or timer

A level probe and a timer are two possible options to control the operation of the drum filter.

The level probe is a powerful radar that only takes into account the level of the liquid and that is not disturbed by foam deposits on the surface of the filtered liquid.
The timer enables the drum to be switched on and off by simple programming on the component inside the box using a screwdriver.

These two options are available separately or combined on the box, please specify when ordering.

Part no. :
– FTDSN4 LR2050 Level Radar
– FTDT01 Timer for FTC001-EAS” cabinet
