Self-cleaning FRP filters introduced for salty water
A range of self-cleaning filters in fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) designed for brackish, brine and seawater applications such as desalination has been introduced by Forsta Filters in the USA.
The filters are available with an on-line or in-line flange configuration to accommodate simple installation, and easily integrate with any pipeline. Flow rates are in the range 15-20,000 GPM (950-1,260 L/s)
A two-stage screening process distinguishes the FRP series. A coarse screen is responsible for straining out large debris from the water source, and the fine screen purifies water to the designated micron rating (5-4,000µm).
As with all Forsta self-cleaning filters, the FRP filter's short backwash cycle never interrupts the main system flow.
