VAF V-Series Self-Cleaning Filters for Seawater

The V-Series design is the most recent, state-of-the-art self-cleaning screen filtration technology available today. The complexity and cleaning efficiency of any self-cleaning screen filter is in the mechanical system that drives the cleaning process. The V-Series patented "BHD drive mechanism is the simplest and most efficient in design resulting in:

VAF V-Series Self-Cleaning Filters for Seawater

  • fewer moving parts (no limit switches or pistons reversing the cleaning mechanism)
  • simpler controls
  • lowest flush flow available
  • greater cleaning efficiency
  • lower maintenance requirements.


The V-Series 12 to 15 second flush cycle is automatically initiated when a pressure differential across the screen increases to 0.5 bar (7 psi).  The filter remains on-line and the filtration process remains uninterrupted during the brief cleaning process.  The flush discharge is the lowest available resulting in minimal waste.

The V-Series filters are available in ASME code and are manufactured in an ASME facility. The filters are available in a broad range of materials including 2205/Duplex as well as pressure and temperature ratings to suit any need.  VAF custom manufactures filters and skids that simplify installation and meet specific requirements.
