Product description

Direct Drive

As the drum is held directly in the motor gearbox, the Rotoclean 40 drum filter is equipped with a direct drive system. This solution is simple and robust.

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 17 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

The Rotoclean Series 40 drum filter is equipped with only 3 rinsing nozzles, which helps to save flushing water.
This saving is appreciated in small closed circuits where this filter is often used.
Furthermore, the pressure of the nozzles has been optimised in order to obtain a perfect rinsing of the mesh without damaging it.

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.

Control box

The control box is supplied as an option. It offers an optimal control and reliability for all our drum filters.

For the safety of people the box integrates :
– 1 padlockable disconnector.
– 2 emergency stops, one of which is on the front of the box, another emergency stop is placed on the drum filter.
– 1 quick release current detector is also integrated in the box. This current detector stops the filter instantly in case the filter would suddenly stop working. (This can happen when a too thick impurity enters the filter with the water)

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

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.
