Hydrocyclone – Filstar
Hydrocyclone type FHZ 15 to FHZ 250
The Filtecci hydrocyclone „Filstar“ is a highly-effective filtration system that separates solids (with a specific weight >1.5 g/cm³) from liquids with a viscosity < 8 cSt (at 20°C) without an auxiliary filter.
The dirty liquid is pumped laterally into a centrifugal block and put into rotation there. The centrifugal force pushes the solid components outwards and then guides them down into the shaft. The cleaned liquid flows upwards.
With low viscosity media and a sufficient density of the solids, separation rates of 95% are achieved for particles up to 10 µm Smaller particles are also separated, but with decreased performance.
The device series P (precision) uses a modified inlet nozzle and higher pump pressure to achieve an even better deposition rate, especially with fine particles less than 10 µm.
The hydrocyclones are made of stainless steel (1.4301). They have no moving parts and therefore are robust and easy to handle. The sludge is drained from the Filstar via a valve o the lower end of the shaft. The valve is opened via an electric or pneumatic drive. The control occurs via two timers or a small logic control for the opening duration and the interval between the openings.
The drain cup can be used for smaller quantities and fine abrasion: this is a container-shaped extension of the lower end of the shaft. The sludge is deposited there. For disposal, the ball valve at the end of the shaft is closed. The drain cup is released with a quick release fastener and the contents are disposed of. The drain cup is available in the sizes 300, 600 and 900 ml.
